Babwa

Masks Her Fwustwation

9/11/2008 2:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Babwa Wawa, the most cutthroat journalist in the interview business, just lost the Sarah Palin exclusive to Charlie Gibson -- and while her mouth says "that's wonderful," you just know she's fwipping him off on the inside.

Seriously, Barbara would be wayyy too tough for Sarah Palin, which means Charlie will probably do a puff piece. I really hope I'm wrong. Somebody needs to do a "tough" interview with her.

I have mixed feelings about Walters doing a Palin interview at this point. It would depend on her approach, which I hope would be to try to get Palin to be clarified and identified through careful, clever journalism and provocation. That's what is needed, to understand what Palin is, in front of the nation, see what makes her tick without it being sugar coated or sound bite edited, see the nature of the beast operating unguarded and animated. People need to know how she thinks and behaves, not get sidetracked with her canned propaganda that she'll have prepared and practiced.

Babs only like politicians that she might get to sleep with.

Huh?    

Steph, back in the days when Baba Wawa was a serious journalist, she would give a tough interview. But for the past 10 years or so she went the celeb route and went soft. You don't go from interviews with Castro and Anwar Sadat and the like, and then jump to paris hilton and britney and other fluff pieces. Barb went Hollywood BIG TIME. Gibson still is a legitimate journalist, that is probably why Palin chose him rather than baba.

Gilda Radnor used to do a killer imitation of Walters on SNL.

Wow, using a lot of "w's" in your writing of this piece, so original, just more 20-something amateur writing!

Barbara is a has been. She kisses Whoopi ass every day. Basically shuts Elisabeth up at eery turn. She is no longer a journalist. She has chosen sides. Plus, she is angry that Sara Palin will now be better for women than she was if she gets VP. That old green monster, jealousy, be careful Babs.

The View would be the best place for a Sarah Palin interview. Her trainers would never risk it.
