Barbara Walters being a terrible human being for almost 15 minutes


Whenever I watch Barbara Walters’ interviews, I can’t help but suspect that she is just a mean girl posing as a journalist. She uses her “journalism” as a hall pass/get-out-of-jail-free card to ask people rude, demeaning questions. Whenever one of her interviewees is visibly taken aback by her abrasiveness, Walters will often hide behind the “you know I have to ask,” Or “You know this is what people are wondering,”. The most egregious example of this was when she demonized Corey Feldman for speaking out about the abuse he and Corey Haim endured as child stars. She accused Feldman of “damaging an entire industry”… 

By that logic, no one should ever speak out about abuse because it could potentially damage X or Y industry.
