The real Barbara Walters stopped by the Weekend Update desk after enduring decades of SNL impersonations. The veteran journalist “thanked” SNL for taking her illustrious career and reducing it to “a cartoon character with a ridiculous voice.” She gave Cecily Strong some advice for how to be a real news anchor instead of a fake one, like coming up with your own voice (here Walters actually went with the voice people have been using to make fun of her all these years) and knowing when to go with the soft focus. But for Walters, “the real money is in making them cry.” Because nothing says “viewership” quite like world-famous celebrities and politicians breaking down crying in front of Walters.
