Gawker rips her interview with Syria’s tyrannical despot, and rightly so. Who the fuck vacations with dictators? Barbara Walters does.
From my experience, he was a very intelligent, a well informed, thoughtful, he spoke perfect English, wants very much to have relations with this country, has some solutions for ending the war in Iraq. She was educated in England, worked in this country, speaks English the way I’m talking to you, lovely, intelligent. I don’t want you to say- people say “oh you’re brainwashed.” But that was not it. They just were very charming and intelligent. She has a cooperative, a group teaching children to be entrepreneurs with Harvard University, was raised in England, worked in this country. So this is not what we expected in terms of the leaders.
No wonder she landed the interview. ABC would have better served sending Debbie Matenopoulos to Damascus.
