Oprah’s Literary Liars Club: Who Is Responsible?

Oprah Winfrey, as near as we can tell, has never and will never take responsibility for anything.  She is currently blaming former guest Herman Rosenblat as a liar.  He’s guilty of  getting on her show more than once with a story that was never true.

Careful historians could have told Oprah on day one that Rosenblat’s story could never have been true under the rule of Nazi, Germany.

Oprah also avoided being truthful and taking responsibility when reporters said a pediphile on Oprah’s payroll at her school in Africa was preying upon young people….

CNN said, “Winfrey personally selected the school’s 152 pupils.”

So who selected the teachers and staff?

Oprah Winfrey broke her silence Friday about former guest Herman Rosenblat, saying she’s “very disappointed” in his now discredited story about meeting his future wife in a Nazi concentration camp.

“That’s what happens with lies,” Winfrey said on an episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” that aired Friday. “They get bigger and bigger and bigger.”

Rosenblat, a 79-year-old resident of North Miami Beach, Fla., and his wife Roma have appeared twice on Winfrey’s show. Winfrey said he had planned to appear again to “explain himself,” but the man’s lawyers scuttled that.

Rosenblat’s tale of a little girl throwing apples over a barbed-wire fence to him every day at a sub-camp of Buchenwald in the 1940s was endearing, Winfrey said.

“And he told that story and I was crying, everybody was crying,” Winfrey said.

Winfrey noted that the couple did have an unusual story.

“They have been married for 50 years and he was, indeed, in a concentration camp and so was she,” Winfrey said.

Berkley Books, an imprint of Penguin Group (USA), had planned to release Rosenblat’s memoir “Angel at the Fence” in February. But after scholars, friends and family members challenged him, Rosenblat acknowledged the story was untrue and Berkley pulled the book.

A planned feature film about Rosenblat’s story still is scheduled to begin production this year, with producer Harris Salomon saying the script may note the “fabricated elements of their wartime love story.”
