Did Brian Williams nearly go the way of Conan O'Brien? Only Barbara Walters knows for sure, and she's not...wait a minute, she is talking!
When the hot topic of O'Brien's Jay Leno-assisted backstabbing came up on The View this morning, Walters apparently felt the need to defend NBC's treatment of its golden oldies by releasing a programming bombshell of her own.
"Last June, NBC came to me—NBC was my home for so many years before I came to ABC," the octogenarian said. "And to my amazement, they made me an offer to come back to NBC News. At my age, it was a very flattering offer."
It may have been a very flattering offer, but it was one she could apparently refuse. Too bad Leno wasn't taking notes.
