On May 16th, Barbara Walters will say goodbye to The View
. She also says she is retiring from television but I find that hard to believe. After 50 years on television I can understand her wanting to pass on working every day, but I have a feeling she will still be doing her specials. Are they really journalism though? I think she likes being on television and having her opinion heard so I don't think this will be the last of her. I am interested to see who replaces her on the show. Will the show try and go younger or will they try and balance it our by hiring someone older? Will they get rid of Jenny McCarthy? ABC is going to run a special the night of May 16th honoring Barbara's contributions to television. I hope someone asks her what kind of tree she would like to be.
