Some are debating whether using the taxpayers money to stage Oprah's show in Australia was a good idea or not...

Federal Tourism Minister Martin Ferguson has defended the use of taxpayers' money to help stage the Oprah Winfrey talk show in Australia.

The "small investment" of $4 million to $5 million by several federal and state agencies is money well spent,
Mr Ferguson says.

Australia had already reaped a benefit of $71 million in Australia and $14 million in the United States, he says.

Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce, whose company helped bring the show to Australia, said,

"There's no doubt in my mind it's the best marketing expenditure we could make.

"It's probably one of the best tourism initiatives Australia will ever make."

Ms Winfrey was asked at a media conference to explain the secret of her success.

"I believe I have never left the space of the viewer,"
she replied.

"I have never lost sight of the viewer.

"My feet are on the ground. I'm just wearing better shoes."
