Oprah's ethical and humanitarian approach to journalism can be seen far and wide. Fans are never shy about expressing their opinions of how her daily work affects them:

Lissa Pitcock writes in the Oprah tribute Web site, "Dear Oprah, I believe in your spirit. You are truly a wonderful woman who has made me laugh, made me cry, and made me open my eyes to many things. You have saved my life without ever knowing it. ... You are my hero, to be sure!"

Janet Williams, on her "Gifts From the Heart" site, "I saw your show the other day and bawled like a baby to know that so many people cared about each other."

Fan, Sean, writes, "She was a mother, a teacher and a friend. Oprah not only educated me for that hour I shared with her through a glass window, but her warmth made me care for her. It made me want to make her proud." His comments are posted on his tribute Web site to Winfrey.
