REPRESENTATION:
The August 1989 TV Guide cover features Oprah Winfrey posing atop a large pile of money with the headline: “Oprah! The Richest Woman on TV?”

REALITY:
In this image, the head of Oprah Winfrey was grafted onto the body of 1960s movie star Ann-Margret. The composite was first noticed when Ann-Margret’s fashion designer identified the dress supposedly worn by Oprah in the photograph; the image was created and published without either of the subjects’ consent.
