TRUTH – Oz Is Paying A Fuck Load To Have ‘Oprah’ Come.
She is sooo cheap. All her satellite interviews are sponsored, or paid for by Skype, and now this…..
According to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, the trip will cost local taxpayers more than $2.3 million.
And a lot of them are not happy about their money being used in this fashion, if feedback from various Australian news sites are anything to go by.
‘Australian tax payers will be helping to pay for it. You got to love how this government waste our money,’ says one commenter.
Another says, ‘Can’t you see? We’re a gimmick to the USA, and the only city they really know of is Sydney .. so makes sense. They’ll probably be asking why they can’t see the Kangaroos in the streets.’
‘How much is our government is paying her to come to Australia,’ demands another.
Australia’s Tourism Minister Martin Ferguson called the deal ‘a major coup’, claiming he had received federal and state funding to convince Oprah to go to Australia.
And the government will contribute more than $1 million, ‘mostly in accommodation costs’, according to the Sydney Daily Telegraph.
The Australian says a finale will be shot at the Sydney Opera House, which will be renamed the Sydney Oprah House for the occasion.
This whole show, starring gay Scientologist makes me chunder. Consumerism gone made, from a woman who cannot even control her weight. The bland leading the blind.
