OPRAH WINFREY'S NOV. 16 SHOW CONFRONTS CELEBRITY INFORMATION DEALER

OPRAH WINFREY'S NOV. 16 SHOW CONFRONTS CELEBRITY INFORMATION DEALER
 CHICAGO, Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Oprah Winfrey confronts Al Schweitzer, an information dealer, who admits to selling very private details about celebrities including Oprah, Elizabeth Taylor, Johnny Carson and Michael Jordan to the tabloids. Commenting on her recent engagement, Oprah tells the audience "I wanted you to know, as the months go on, I will tell you the truth. You don't have to buy the 'rags' to find out what's going on with the wedding." Confronting Your Tabloid Snitch will air on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" Monday, Nov. 16 (check local listing).
 Winfrey considers this kind of undercover work "privacy rape" and tells viewers that this does not just happen to celebrities but to private citizens as well. Schweitzer tells Oprah "if it's on paper, I can get it" and further explains that he can find out where people bank, their Social Security numbers, how much money they make, where they work and live, who they telephone from their home and other information that is considered confidential. Schweitzer recently pleaded guilty for bribing a government official for Social Security numbers and is awaiting sentencing.
