CNN Is in Love With Oprah 2020
CNN senior media correspondent Brian Stelter is in love with the idea of Oprah Winfrey running for president in 2020.
Winfrey sparked speculation on social media that she will launch a White House bid after she received the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement at the Golden Globes on Sunday, delivering a speech that received several standing ovations and became a viral hit online.
Stelter admitted that, immediately after Winfrey’s speech, he was on the phone with her closest friends and business associates to investigate if the speech was the beginning of a 2020 campaign.
“The minute she finished that speech at the Golden Globes, I started calling her friends, her confidants, her business associates,” Stelter said.
The morning after the Golden Globes, Stelter frequently speculated about Winfrey running for president. That afternoon, Stelter reported that sources close to Winfrey said that she is “actively thinking” about running for president.
