The temptation of Oprah Winfrey
January 10, 2018 | FT | by Edward Luce.

[Oprah Winfrey & Donald Trump] share a disqualifying trait: they are celebrities with no experience in politics. If Ms Winfrey is the answer to Mr Trump, what was the question?

I mean no disrespect to famous people. America invented the celebrity and nobody does it as well. But America also came up with modern democracy. The problem is that celebrity culture is taking over politics, which is a dead loss for governing.....But there is nothing in Ms Winfrey’s background that would equip her to tackle the future of work, or the rise of China. All a Winfrey administration would bring is personal brand destruction. What is at stake is America’s ability to govern itself sensibly. The US constitution was designed to exclude mob rule. The people should have their say — but with safeguards. It was set up precisely to stop someone like Mr Trump from taking over. The fact that many Americans do not know this underlines the point. The popular view is that the US was founded as a democracy. In fact, it was born as a constitutional republic. There is a big difference. America’s founding fathers feared the demagogue. Their system worked until 2016. Now it is in jeopardy.

Jul. 24, 2006 | Supermarket News | by David Orgel.

Who holds power and influence in the supermarket industry today? That's usually an easy answer: Wal-Mart, Kroger, Kraft, Coke and the like.

But food industry clout is also shifting to players that aren't retailers, suppliers or other members of the establishment. These outside participants are gaining more influence over everything from consumer behavior to industry mergers.

Who are these people? A number of them are highlighted in the SN Power 50 rankings in this issue (see Page 24 for the full list). The ones I will point out appear under the category of "Other Players" because they don't neatly fit into the rest of the segments.

Consider the case of "The New Private Investor" (No. 45 on the list), which is our umbrella name for all the private equity investors now heating up the merger and acquisitions landscape.

Prototype - At Start-Ups, Media Exposure Can Be, Well, Overwhelming -
October 2, 2010 | New York Times | By AMY WALLACE. Chocomize, a
Web-based company that lets its customers create their own chocolate
bars from more than 100 ingredients. Its Web site opened for business
late last year; then, in June, the company was briefly noted in O, the
Oprah Magazine. The mention was tiny — just 36 words in a wee stripe on
the bottom of a page. Nevertheless, things went haywire.
