Janet Street-Porter: Oprah should stand down

Oprah is a billionaire businesswoman who cares about injustice and equality - but don't most of us, writes JANET STREET-PORTER. All TV stars are cossetted by armies of yes-people, primped by make-up artists and flattering lighting, and go on air wearing ear pieces into which clever producers and researchers shout facts and tell them what questions to ask, while they shuffle their papers and look serious. TV teaches you to be mouthy and have instant opinions, to lead from the front, not how to build a team or create agreement. Donald Trump is brilliant at self-promotion and self-belief, but lousy at listening or even reading a piece of paper that's longer than a television briefing note - about 200 words. To arrive at policy-making, you have to explore every option, try to take as many people along with you as possible. In Trump's mind there are only two ways of doing anything - his way and the wrong way.

The mother and son tiger were play-fighting for around 20 minutes in the marshy area where water is typically 3ft to 5ft deep. The action shots were captured by Pratik Humnabadkar who was visiting Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve, in Maharashtra state, India.

The smaller one is a female tigress and the second is her male cub, who is already bigger in size than her.'
