Barbara Walters' Spy Cam at Jackson Memorial

7/8/2009 2:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

If everyone were to jump off the Brooklyn Bridge, Barbara Walters would too.

Barbara Walters' Spy Cam at Jackson Memorial
During last night's "20/20" Michael Jackson special, Walters showcased footage shot by an ABC producer sitting next to her at the memorial. The video captures Katherine Jackson and Michael's kids two rows in front of Barbara watching the service -- despite the fact that tickets to the event clearly state "no camera/video/recording."

Calls to AEG (which threw the event) were not returned.

That's really disrespectful, this woman has no values.
The jacksons lost a member of their family, this is the worst thing that can happen to a family, so be respectful.

May MJ rest in peace

It's VERY sad that a PROFESSIONAL journalist is allowed to break the law and/or requests by the Jackson Family and by AEG, to NOT take photographs. Just because it's Barbara Wa Wa, doesn't excuse it, and it fact, makes it worse. I hope they go after her and all the other idiot reporters that somehow don't beleive the rules pertain to them. It's the only way they will STOP.

Just because other people were filming and taking pictures doesn't mean it was right or OK for Walters to do it. "Well, everybody else was doing it" is not a valid excuse.

Oh the irony of your statement. "Nothing like violating a child". Typical Jackson fan.

Michael Levine is a Has Been    

Barbara sinks to an all-time low. And the assertions that they shot video because everyone else was doing so, is gross. Obviously, that fat producer brought the video camera in advance with intentions of shooting uber-private moments. I feel sick.

KARMA IS A BITCH!!!!

Barbara has no credibility at all since the Rosie insitant. I thpought she through Rosie under the bus and so did ABC. They could care less who they hurt just as long as they make money. Barbara always says she has dignity All she cares about Is money and to get the best story. Yesterday they kept reporting all day that they were going to show a interview with Debbie Rowe I thought It was a new interview Itwas from 2003. ABC should be a shamed misleading people to watch when It was old news. Shame on them and Barbara ABC has no class There getting just as bad as FOX and thats BAD!!!!

How about this;
They fine about $500 per person taking pictures and $1000 per person taking video, they'd practically pay for the event themselves! There were plenty of flashes going on at Staples during that circus of an event and what a way to 'defer' the costs that they don't want to pay?
