Zach has been ripped off

Click to embiggen. 
Oprah has been running a competition for someone to host a new show on her network.  The leader for almost all of the competition has been Zach Anner, a young man who is very intelligent and funny, but who also happens to have Cerebral Palsy.  The others which have been risen to lead the competition are more Oprah and Dr. Phil clones.  Zach was pitching a travel show.
The bottom figures were before someone at the Oprah production company decided to pick who would win the public vote.  How can Zach lose 6 million votes?  Because Oprah says so.  Even if she did not change the figures herself, she would be aware of it, and would have the power to fix it if she wanted to.
I understand that she is running a business, but this is disgraceful.  I hope Oprah is ashamed and embarrassed about her blatant discrimination.
I also hope that Zach will have a future in the media regardless.
