Skeptic with a column in Oprah's mag

Acording to the December 2009 issue of the Sacramento Area Skeptics Newsletter, "Skeptic Magazine columnist and contributor to the Science-Based Medicine blog, Dr Harriet Hall (SkepDoc), was hired as a regular columnist for O magazine. O or The Oprah Magazine is the official magazine of the media mogul and day time talk show host Oprah Winfrey, famed among skeptics as one of, if not the top, promoters of woo-woo. Starting in January, Dr Hall will have a column limited to 250 words dedicated to ‘debunking’ medical myths. The very tip of the wedge for skeptics in the Oprah wackiness."

So, how can she give a platform to that anti-vaccination idiot, Jenny McCarthy, and a column to a skeptical medical doctor? I mentioned some of the health mis-information that Oprah peddles here.
