So when Walters passes, is it just going to be lovely tributes about what a wonderful journalist she was and how she broke the glass ceiling for all female anchors but leave out that she was evil Roy Cohn's bestie and beard for years?
She can't say she didn't know how corrupt and evil he was because she's Barbara Walters Journalist.

Barbara was never a skilled journalist, although she thought she was.
She was paid one million dollars to jump from NBC to co-host the Evening News on ABC with Harry Reasoner.....he was not pleased and eventually left.
She was pushed off the evening news to interviews and special events within a year or so......never a heavy weight or even a light weight newsperson.
Her success is puzzling. Self-important, pushy woman with no skills - just luck. It can happen when network executives think they know what the public wants. They are usually wrong.

There's a lot to say about Walters that isn't pleasant, but she worked her ass off at a time when women were persona non grata in the news industry. Prior to her starting today, the female correspondent did fluff pieces on cutesy, inoffensive topics. Walters helped change that image. You have to give credit where credit is due.

Radar Online reported that Walters' hearing is impaired and she suffers from heart disease. She has been showing signs of dementia for months, but her reps deny it. The last person who saw her is convinced that she does have Alzheimer’s. A sign is that she doesn't recognize much these days. Sometimes she doesn't recognize her own name. She does recognize a few old photos of her late dog, Cha Cha, and the televised voice of Joy Behar, co-host of "The View," the ABC morning talk show that Walters created with Bill Geddie in 1997.

Here's Star's departure announcement and Barbara's next-day response.
Barbara reveals that the plan was for Star to fabricate a lie and ABC to support whatever story she came up with, but then Star jumped the gun and said her contract was not renewed. They wanted Star to lie as a cover for her being let go so they could achieve a graceful transition.
Basically, Barbara tells viewers "We all agreed to lie to you about Star but then she decided to screw things up by being truthful." I think it was a tacky reply and I'm surprised it made it to air. Star's announcement was more graceful than Barbara's bitching about not being allowed to pull one over on the viewers.

Perhaps Harry Reasoner didn't like Babs sitting next to him not because she was a woman but because he didn't respect her.
I think that's weasonable.
Babs was a star fucker; she loved being around celebrities and you can either be their pal or you can be someone who is professionally friendly with them but you do your professional job and ask the tough questions.
One instance in which I think she was in the right was her trying to calmly explain to Elizabeth Hasselbeck (sp?) that there are other views to have on pro choice and Lizzie had a meltdown, very unprofessional.

The last few seasons she was on The View, it was obvious that something was up. She wasn't as sharp as she usually was and could occasionally come across more like you're weird drunk aunt than a respected journalist. She'd go from being wacky to stern and schoolmarm-y. The worst was when someone would bring up the circles she liked to socialize in and she's always try to bring herself down to earth and pretend like she wasn't all uppity and entitled.

Never understood exactly why she was famous, I just remember seeing her on 2020 when I was a kid.
According to her wikipedia page, part of her legacy is being remembered for her speech impediment?? WTF. Apparently, she had rhotacism. Which I had to look up:
In medical contexts, rhotacism (/ˈroʊtəsɪzəm/) is the inability to pronounce or difficulty in pronouncing r sounds. Speech pathologists call the condition de-rhotacism, or de-rhotacization, because the sounds lose their rhotic quality rather than becoming rhotic.
Then I had to look up rhotic:
In phonetics, rhotic consonants, or "R-like" sounds, are liquid consonants that are traditionally represented orthographically by symbols derived from the Greek letter rho, including ⟨R⟩, ⟨r⟩ in the Latin script and ⟨Р⟩, ⟨p⟩ in the Cyrillic script. They are transcribed in the International Phonetic Alphabet by upper- or lower-case variants of Roman ⟨R⟩, ⟨r⟩: r, ɾ, ɹ, ɻ, ʀ, ʁ, ɽ, and ɺ.
This class of sounds is difficult to characterise phonetically; from a phonetic standpoint, there is no single articulatory correlate (manner or place) common to rhotic consonants. Rhotics have instead been found to carry out similar phonological functions or to have certain similar phonological features across different languages. Although some have been found to share certain acoustic peculiarities, such as a lowered third formant, further study has revealed that this does not hold true across different languages.

"So when Walters passes..."
Can't we say DIES? What prevents you from using words like die, dies and dead?
Daddy Lou Walters was the mob connected owner of the Latin Casino night club, R127. It was on its last legs when Barbara started moving up at the Today Show, no real advantages there. Lou Walters wouldn't give up and started a new one in Florida. When it failed, Barbara bailed him out.
I used to have fondness for Barbara Walters way back because she was ballsy and played her cards right. I was happy when she left Today for that $1 million/year ABC job. I had fun with her silly specials later. I'm happy she started The View. However, the woman is OLD. She used to state her birth date as 1931, then t was 1929, it's probably really 1926. I will give her a pass because of her age, up to a point. Happy that she finally got off the air, it should have happened five years earlier.

"Doesn't Barbara have a daughter to care for her?"
R124, dummy, rich people are not cared for by relatives. They HIRE private nurses and the top of the line home health care workers.

Between Goldberg's smell and Barbara's dirty pampers their last meeting must have been hell for anyone else in the room.

You are correct, R134, it was the Latin Quarter, not the Latin Casino. It was a night club and included a restaurant. Floor shows with a Latin theme, and headliner performers like Tony Bennett and Rosemary Clooney. More like the Copa than 21, which I don't think had a show. According to my ancient hair cutter of 20 years ago, it was expensive too. Lou Walters was out by 1960.

My favorite story is the producers making Jenny McCarthy take the blame for an unflushed tampon in the toilet. Apparently Barbara would not let the show go on until she found out who did it. They begged Jenny to take the blame and Barbra made her go in and flush it.

R138, that would have been kind of funny if you had spelled the name Barbara correctly, you stupid Streisand disciple.
The name for normal people is spelled BARBARA.

[quote] Basically, Barbara tells viewers "We all agreed to lie to you about Star but then she decided to screw things up by being truthful." I think it was a tacky reply and I'm surprised it made it to air. Star's announcement was more graceful than Barbara's bitching about not being allowed to pull one over on the viewers.
Honey, who the hell do you think asked them to lie in the first place. Hint: the name is spelled S-T-A-R.
And speaking of someone telling a lie: your little fantasy you're spinning here that Star's ridiculous exit was somehow "graceful" on her part is quite the story.

Dementia is a terrible illness. Cut Barbara a bit of slack.
My dad has it. He's 92. I care for him. Each day gets a little worse. A little more forgetful. A little more challenging.
Clearing poo and pee isn't a problem. The physical stuff of dressing him, breakfasting him and taking care of him is fine.
What gets me, is when he thinks my mum is still alive. She died 20 years ago, but he'll suddenly say "It was nice to see Hazel at the weekend". Gawd knows what happens in his mind. I just agree and go about my chores. To correct him and explain she's no longer here is just too distressing for him. It's hard, but rewarding looking after him. After all, he look after me for so very long.

"Dementia is a terrible illness. Cut Barbara a bit of slack."
How do we know she actually has dementia? She could simply be wheelchair bound without hair and make-up watching TV all day, being cared for by hired home healthcare aides 24/7. Not wanting to be seen in public, only a couple of close friends visit. Her daughter doesn't have to do a thing.
