Yet somehow, the media doesn't seem to be celebrating her coming out party. Perhaps they're skeptical of the Enquirer's reportage (a bizarre position since the John Edwards sex scandal). Perhaps they're suddenly respectful of the personal lives of celebrities (though they were happy to trumpet Mark Foley's sexuality to every available reader/viewer). Or perhaps they're still trying to cover for Oprah herself.
The gay community has been largely silent on the issue, which is shocking. Usually when a celebrity comes out of the closet, the gay media is all over it. When Ellen came out, they celebrated. When Rosie came out, they celebrated. Hell, Ricky Martin just came out, and they celebrated that.
But when Oprah comes out, they don't even report it.
Because for years, the left media has pushed the notion that lesbianism is the new normal.
Every single major female talk show host with the exception of Tyra Banks has been a closeted lesbian who eventually came out to the adoration and acceptance of her fans.
Oprah's revelation, however, would not just be another story in a chain of stories -- it would be the capper, the revelation that millions of American women have been played for dupes.
Oprah crosses all racial, income, and socioeconomic lines, and any information that suggests that she doesn't represent the American woman threatens her brand and her credibility with her audience.
Better for the media and the gay left to ignore her sexuality so that she can purvey her pro-gay views more effectively, without being seen as a partisan in the culture wars (which she most assuredly is).
The media ignored John Edwards until it became too big to cover up. They'll do the same with Oprah. The left covers for the left, and they ensure that their most effective cultural tools remain intact until they have outlived their usefulness.
