Barbara Walters bids farewell to “The View” on Friday morning; ABC pays tribute to her in “Barbara Walters: Her Story” that night. Someday, we’ll get a more balanced look at her contributions. Some of them were admirable, but she is hugely responsible for the celebrity-driven, non-news “news” that dominates TV.
