Media titan Oprah Winfrey is acting inconsistent & contradictory in her latest ploy to save her image or rather her “brand’s image”. Her “O” magazine and OWN network have both failed to achieve the success people have come to expect from Winfrey; and, now it appears she continues to make choices based on saving her businesses and not her soul. In 2012 Oprah registered trademarks Oprah’s Organics and Oprah’s Harvest in Maui where she also has an organic farm.
Recently the genetically modified organism (GMO) giant Monsanto has been making a push to change their negative image by running both television and print ads.
“O” published an article: How Do Genetically Modified Foods Affect Your Health? in their Brave New You! edition. But is all of Oprah’s talk of organics (the opposite of gmos) just for show?
According to the Institute of Responsible Technology’s (IRT) Facebook page this Monsanto print ad is slated to run in “O” magazine sometime in 2015. Oprah clearly doesn’t need the money but I’m not sure her ego will allow her to fail when it comes to her business brands; and, those who believe in organics view Monsanto as the devil. I think Twinkies are a food group so I’m not the person to turn to when it comes to which food is better but I do know that Oprah Winfrey’s inconsistent & contradictory language to action regarding organics and Monsanto are a trigger for The Sociopathic Business Model™. It’s enough information for me though to know that I do not want to support Oprah or any of her ventures.
If you’re going to buy organic make sure you read why you shouldn’t buy from Whole Foods (hint they support a child rapist).
