Oprah Down Under: Not Everybody's Cup of McCafe

Cross post from Global Voices: Oprah Down Under: Not Everybody’s Cup of McCafe
Oprah Winfrey’s fans seem to have lapped up her Australian tour which finished with taping of her show at the Sydney Opera House. However her trip also has had its fair share of criticism.

... an indigenous woman has sent a video message to Oprah:

A video prepared for Oprah Winfrey by Chairwoman of the NSW Aboriginal Land Council, Bev Manton, …shines a light on the living conditions of Aboriginal people in the Northern Territory, in particular those living under the NT intervention, an Australian Government program which the United Nations has branded racially discriminatory.
