If you’ve been keeping up with Oprah, you know she’s got huge plans for OWN. Perhaps none more important to the media guru than her upcoming “Lifeclass,” set to air October 10th.

It’s depressing and overwhelming at times to look at how much potential we have and yet we’re constantly bombarded by images and information that speaks to the lowest common denominator. We can do better. We can be better. I know it’s true.”

Though Oprah hasn’t discovered anything shockingly new, she makes a great point. How many times have we been suckered into worrying about useless information?
