Do you think that the phrase "correct opinion" is an oxymoron?

The oxymoron I always remember when I think of oxymoron is "living dead."

Maybe more a misnomer than an oxymoron.  These words dint have opppsite meanings, they just arent quite right together    And ocymoron would be more like 'factual opinion'.    Generally speaking you might say opinions are neither correct or incorrect.  But depending on whom you are talking to and the opinions presented, some may consider them correct or incorrect.  In some settings only certain opinions are accepted as 'correct'.

You:  Thats what i think.

Person: Well, you're wrong!
