Speaking Truth To The Powerless

It turns out it wasn’t just me (and Rush Limbaugh) who noted Oprah’s harsh comments about poor American students last week. In Tuesday’s Chicago Tribune, columnist Clarence Page notes that just because Oprah’s comments “delighted conservative commentators... doesn’t mean she’s wrong.” According to Page (Oprah’s `truth’ shouldn’t hurt), “Liberals love to speak ‘truth to power,’ but the powerless need to hear the truth too.”
