    In the months after her exclusive interview last year with President Bashar al-Assad of Syria, Barbara Walters tried to intercede to get a television position for a former aide of his, who Ms. Walters acknowledged helped arrange the interview. Ms. Walters, the longtime ABC News correspondent, issued a statement Tuesday apologizing for reaching out to contacts to seek an internship with CNN and admission at Columbia University for Sheherazad Jaafari, who had been a media adviser for Mr. Assad. Ms. Jaafari, 22, is the daughter of the Syrian ambassador to the United Nations.

    NEW YORK (AP) -- After three decades of keeping mum, Barbara Walters is disclosing a past affair with married U.S. Senator Edward Brooke, whom she remembers as "exciting" and "brilliant." Appearing on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" scheduled to air Tuesday, Walters shares details of her relationship with Brooke that lasted several years in the 1970s, according to a transcript of the show provided to The Associated Press. A moderate Republican from Massachusetts who took office in 1967, Brooke was the first African-American to be popularly elected to the Senate. Both he and Walters knew that public knowledge of their affair...

    A ONE-HOUR interview with US news "queen" Barbara Walters will be a cleansing experience for Steve Irwin's widow Terri, a close friend of her husband has said.

Ms Walters is reported to have arrived in Brisbane this morning. Channel 9 will also broadcast "an exclusive Australian interview" by Ray Martin with Mrs Irwin and Bindi next Wednesday. Mr Irwin's long-time friend and manager John Stainton today said the interviews would...

    NEW YORK - Has Barbara Walters lost it? Some of her co-hosts on “The View” may think so after her claim today about her Havanese dog Cha-Cha. Walters says when she told Cha-Cha she loved her, Cha-Cha said “I love you” back.

    So the annoying, insane former tub o' lard, Star Jones has been fired from anti-male yenta-fest "The View," a/k/a "The Spew." One down, 3 more old biddies (and one younger annoying one who pretends to be a conservative but is just an inane airhead) to go. The best part about this whole thing is that we get to watch the forever annoying Baba Wawa (Barbra Walters to those not in the know) and Jones fighting about it all over the place, not to mention Walters openly lying about the whole thing (and getting caught with a million different stories). It's...

    The wigs and faces have come off on morning television -- and the nails are out! It isn't pretty. Barbara Walters coldly ripped into outgoing VIEW talker Star Jones this morning on ABC-TV. Walters announced that Star would no longer be permitted to appear on the show -- effective immediately -- after Star strayed from script during an exit that's turned ugly. Transcipt: WALTERS: "And then there were three. This is, truthfully, a very difficult day for us, and it is a sad day for us. If you were watching the program yesterday, you would have heard Star announce that...

    NY DAILY NEWS ^ | June 28, 2006 | Lloyd Grove with Katherine Thomson
    A few hours after a televised display of saccharine warmth and affection between Barbara Walters and Star Jones Reynolds - who yesterday surprised her "View" colleagues by announcing she's leaving in mid-July - their relationship turned very chilly indeed. Never mind Walters' previous public assurances that Jones Reynolds was welcome to stay on the show as long as she wanted. Yesterday, "The View's" alpha female - the show's co-owner and co-executive producer - told me that she lied "to protect Star" from the damaging news that ABC long ago decided not to renew her contract. "I have always told the...

    Hosts of ABC's "The View" Gang Up on Giuliani for Backing Bush Joy Behar ridiculed Giuliani for claiming that the first thing he said after the 9/11 attacks was "thank God" George W. Bush "was our President" and she insisted that "of course" Al Gore would have been just as "tough" on terrorism. Former CBS News correspondent Meredith Vieira, who participated Sunday in an anti-Bush march, seemed similarly ignorant, scolding Giuliani: "The implication is that if you disagree, I think, with the administration that somehow you are on the side of the terrorists. " Giuliani shot back: "That isn't who...

    The heated argument consumed nearly eight minutes, so space permits only some limited excerpts as provided by the MRC's Jessica Anderson who caught the August 31 exchange: Joy Behar: "Did you really say that, 'Thank God he was our President'? That's the first thing you said? You didn't say 'Oh, expletive,' or something?" Rudy Giuliani: "No, no, that wasn't the first thing I said. That's one of the things that I said on September 11th to my police commissioner. It really came out because that was just a few months after that disputed election, and so I had called the...

    Radio talk show host Laura Ingraham received a hostile reaction last week from crew on ABC’s daytime show, The View, to the premise of her new book, Shut Up and Sing: How Elites from Hollywood, Politics, and the UN are Subverting America. Other than Rachel Campos, one of three finalists auditioning to join the show permanently, the co-hosts were all appalled by Ingraham’s contention that elites on the coasts are out of touch with “the heartland.” When Ingraham argued “that the Democratic Party is not connecting with the people who are its logical constituents, from the South and from the...

    MRC analyst Jessica Anderson took down Ingraham's session on the November 4 The View. Star Jones: "Now, first of all, the title of the book is 'Shut Up and Sing.' Now, it's an explanation of how the 'elites' -- which I can't stand that word -- from Hollywood, Washington and the United Nations are subverting America. What exactly do you mean, Laura?" Ingraham: "We're supposed to have government of the people, by the people and for the people, and there are elites in this country who are Republicans and Democrats -- Hollywood just comprises one small section of that. The...

    The MRC's Jessica Anderson took down a hunk of the gabfest at the beginning of the June 25 The View, ABC's daytime show created by Barbara Walters, for whom Coulter was filling in. Meredith Vieira explained: “In your last book you said liberals have been wrong about everything in last half century. You ticked us off over that one, alright. And now in this new bok you say that liberals hate freedom...I want to talk about your politics because in Treason you say, yes, that liberals hate America." Ann Coulter: "Right." Vieira: "Well, it's stupid. What do you mean liberals...

    In an interview with Barbara Walters, former Vice President Al Gore says the Democrats must identify their differences with President Bush and offer clear and bold alternatives. ( Nov. 15 — Al Gore is back in the spotlight — stumping for Democratic candidates, challenging President Bush's domestic and foreign policy moves — and perhaps testing the waters for another presidential bid in 2004. In his first television interview since his crushing defeat to George W. Bush in the 2000 presidential race, Gore, along with his wife Tipper and two of their daughters, talk with Barbara Walters about the gut-wrenching post-election...
