Is Oprah More Powerful Than Queen Elizabeth?


Forbes’ annual list of The World’s Most Powerful Women contains, to be sure, many of the usual suspects. New York Times Chief Executive Janet Robinson makes the list, as do Diane Sawyer, Katie Couric and Meredith Vieira. Martha Stewart and Barbara Walters, however, do not make the list. From Stephanie D. Smith of WWD:

”Other media power hitters include Oprah Winfrey (21st, dropping from 14th last year); Judy McGrath, chief executive, MTV Networks (31st; 52nd last year) Time Inc. chief executive Ann Moore (57th; 53rd in 2006); CNN correspondent Christiane Amanpour (74th; 79th in 2006); Playboy chief executive Christie Hefner (85th; 80th in 2006), and Hearst Magazines president Cathie Black (94th; 92nd last year).”

The Queen of England, by means of contrast, is rated the 23rd Most Powerful, according to Forbes. Draw your own inferences.
