Last week, Oprah tweeted that she wanted to snag an interview with George Zimmerman, the 28-year-old man who killed Florida teen Trayvon Martin. Although many questioned whether or not she was the one sending the tweets (she sounded so friendly and homegirlish), the question remained….should the talk show queen interview Zimmerman?

While many people were upset she wanted to interview Zimmerman, and suggested she interview Trayvon Martin’s parents instead, Oprah’s eyes were fixed on the prize: getting the Zimmerman exclusive.

Recently, Oprah stopped by Extra and spoke with AJ Calloway regarding her difficulties with OWN, canceling Rosie O’donnell’s talk show, and the death of Trayvon Martin.

Speaking about Martin, Oprah called the incident “a tragedy,” but disagreed with those who think his death shows America hasn’t changed.

While Oprah stuggles to turn her struggling network into a success, one thing is clear: she hasn’t lost her journalistic instincts to snag the exclusive. Oprah’s interview with Whitney Houston’s family was a ratings boon for the network, and getting an interview with George Zimmerman would certainly be a ratings windfall for OWN.

What do you think? Do you want Oprah to interview George Zimmerman? Speak on it!

    I would watch out of curiousity, but I do wonder why she wouldn’t want to interview Trayvon Martin’s parents.

  • Beanie

    No. I would not watch and encourage others to boycott such a thing.

  • Justified

    George Zimmerman has already been interviewed.

    He doesn’t want anything to do with the mass media and rightly so how they have been portraying the entire incident…

      No, he does not want to be interviewed by the media because he knows his ass is in some boiling hot water, especially if he gets convicted and sent to jail. Inmates all over is waiting for his ass.
