Just as long as Dr. Phil isn't involved

Can we get Oprah into the White House press corps? Because she certainly did a better job pinning down a dissembler who had exaggerated, and outright lied in many instances, during her viceration of coniving author James Frey yesterday, than the media did of President Bush.

She made Frey squirm about the alleged "memoir" he wrote, that turned out to be, basically, a bunch of crap. Compare that to W's press conference, also yesterday, where he faced the press but was able to skate over just about all the lies his administration has told us about the war, the domestic spying, etc.

Ironically, Oprah's show airs live at 9 a.m. in her home base in Chicago (the only market where it airs in the morning) and was pre-empted by Bush's press conference.
