The blog, (http://news.exploretalent.com/oprah-winfreys-bodyguards-fight-with-indian-journalists/) details that Oprah Winfrey's visit to India quickly turned sour this week, when her own bodyguards got into a scuffle with Indian media, according to Reuters (1/19012). When Winfrey decided to drop in on the Hindu temple town of Uttar Pradesh without any advance notice to visit a center where child widows are abandoned by their families, Indian journalists wanted to get a glimpse of the cable network owner. However, her bodyguards were not keen on the idea, and a fight broke out.

"Oprah Winfrey was in one of the ashrams where the widows stay. Journalists wanted to go in, but were refused entry," Superintendent of Police for Mathura region, Prem Gautam, told Reuters.

According to Reuters (1/19/2012) Vijay Kumar Arya Vidyarthi, a reporter of the Press Trust of India news agency, said one cameraman was "manhandled" by Oprah's security guards because they were angry that he climbed a wall to film Winfrey. In response, the journalists threw stones at the bodyguards. Police were called, and they held Winfrey's security team until they wrote an apology letter to the media.

Explore Talent's proprietary software and vast infrastructure is the most advanced entertainment-based technology of its kind.
