Oprah Pulls Columbine Episode

4/20/2009 10:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oprah WinfreyToday's episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" was supposed to mark the 10 year anniversary of the massacre at Columbine High School -- but not anymore.

Oprah just announced on her website she's decided to pull the episode: "I decided to pull the Columbine show today. After reviewing it, I thought it focused too much on the killers. Today, hold a thought for the Columbine community. This is a hard day for them."

Instead, Oprah will air an episode about a mother being released from prison.

makes good sense most of these idiots (even though they commit suicide) are just looking for the world to immortalize them in some wierd way.

really now    

Oprah must have got a lot of ''flack'' for it when the poor victims and thier famlies found out about her show and all that it entailed. Not a big Oprah fan at all. She needs to get over herself . God Bless the victims and thier famlies from this horrific tragedy .

That fat old pig, right along with Barbara Walters should quit and enjoy all the ill-gotten money they have stashed away from fooling the public that they were actually worth watching.

Wonder why the anniversary of Columbine merits a whole show when the anniversary of the OKC bombing was yesterday and it was only mentioned on a few stations. We should never forget any of those we lost, no matter where.

I totally agree with Oprah's decision, we need to hear more about the survivors and less about that killers.

This is a horrible anniversary for all involved. To the idiot who said to 'get over it', obviously you are not playing with a full deck. I feel Oprah's decision was also a good one. Lets focus on the survivors, and what we can possibly do to prevent these types of tragedies, and not the cowardly, egotistical, killers.
