James Taranto reminds us today that Oprah Winfrey isn't Rosa Parks, and that her claims of casually racist treatment at a Zurich shop are lies to cover her privileged mistreatment of the "lowly". After all, Taranto has a deep understanding of what life is like in Switzerland.
It seems there was a language barrier: The clerk's English isn't great, and Winfrey probably doesn't speak Swiss. ... What Winfrey construes as a racial episode is actually a story about class--a wealthy, privileged celebrity aggrieved by a lowly saleswoman's lack of deference.
This was your reminder for the day that some members of the Wall Street Journal's editorial board, regardless of their opinions or beliefs, are just plain stupid.
