Poor Barbara Walters. I’m imagining what it must be like after a long, successful career, to have to humble herself to the likes of the cast of “Jersey Shore“for the “10 Most Fascinating People of 2010″ special last week. She called it a “first” for her, but we all know that is a diplomatic way of saying, “I’ve hit journalistic rock bottom.” I wonder how she felt about Snooki comparing her to Elvis and saying she was “hot” in person. Or about having to ask, “What is SMUSH?” As a side note, I was floored to learn that J-Woww owned a graphic design company before she was on the show. Is that secret code for a porn site? Anyhow, we’re sorry for you, Barbara. We’ll just pretend like it never happened.
