Dan Rather can’t hold back his tears

Barbara Walters, the legendary newswoman, died on Friday, and tributes from important friends, colleagues, and fans poured in.

“The world of journalism has been dealt a blow to its professionalism, courage, and integrity with the passing of a significant character,” Dan Rather, who once hosted the CBS Evening News for many years, wrote. “Barbara Walters was a trailblazer and consummate professional in her area. She outhustled, outworked, and outthought her competitors to win the tournament. She left the world a better place than she found it. Everyone will miss her terribly. RIP”
