Oprah pulls plug on Columbine show

In all of the talk today surrounding the 10th anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre, one voice will be notably absent.

The talk show queen pulled the plug today on an episode that would have marked the gruesome anniversary, saying that the show focused too much on the killers.

The episode titled “10 Years Later: The Truth about Columbine” was to air today, the anniversary of the massacre in Littleton, Colo., that killed 12 students and a teacher.

Winfrey posted a message this morning on her Facebook page, saying that after she reviewed the taped show she decided to pull it because of its focus on the two gunmen.

She urged viewers to keep the Columbine community in their thoughts.

Winfrey said she would air a program about a mother released from prison instead of the Columbine piece.
