Barbara Walters

Every Newswoman EVER Shows Up

For Her Last Day

5/16/2014 9:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

051514_barbara_walters_view_launchOprah Winfrey didn't show up solo for Barbara Walters' last day on "The View" ... she brought nearly every newswoman on the planet with her ... to celebrate Babwa's retirement.

It was a fitting sendoff for the woman who paved the way for all women in news. The list -- which is uber long -- includes Jane Pauley, Diane Sawyer, Katie Couric, Connie Chung, Robin Roberts, Maria Shriver, Kathie Lee Gifford ... you get the idea. 

Walters seemed truly humbled by the show of love, but less so when she spoke, exclaiming, "This is my legacy."

Can't argue with her there.

Start working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life.

This is what I do >>>>>>> www.Bay91.Com

Imagine having to stand there...

For twenty-nine minutes, seventeen seconds?

ON camera?

-Clapping profusedly/meaningfully?

What's up with Oprah singing:

"Maria Shri-i-i-i-i-ver-r-r-r-r-r..."

You're friends/tight Oprah - we get it.

You should get a house.

No questions asked.

If you've watched any five shows of THE VIEW.

From beginning to end.

Four minutes of the show?

Almost turned me into a cutter.

Kathy Lee Gifford is NOT A NEWS PERSON. She is a second-rate entertainer whose big break came when she started ****ing Frank GIfford.

I think the View was terrible for her (despite making her a ton of money). She really is one of the most important and respected newspersons in history, and pretty much blazed the trail for female newscasters. Ending her career by running a mindless gabfest talkshow with no redeeming value is going to skew people's memory of what she accomplished.
