Barbara Walters Tops Britney Spears To Win ‘Carnie Award’

EUGENE, Ore. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The View is already a circus, but now the chatter show’s very own Barbara Walters is the winner of something called the “Carnie Awards.”

Self-proclaimed huckster Peter Fenton created the Carnie Awards to honor America’s top carnival-style hucksters, barkers, and baloney artists, who “know there’s still a sucker born every minute.”

And it takes one to know one, as Fenton claims to have earned a small fortune as a carnival con during his teenage years.

Despite crowd-drawing con queens Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, and Paris Hilton – who came together in a celeb-utard trinity for second place – Fenton says Baba Wawa deserves this year’s top honor because “she’s drawn more attention to The View than a fat Star Jones in a sequined thong.”

Fenton adds, “By replacing Star with always-opinionated, ever-feuding Rosie O’Donnell, and then with Whoopi Goldberg, Barbara transformed The View from a tired chat show into headline news. Ms. Walters may act upset or offended when her panelists mouth-off, but she produces the show, and rakes in more cash every time an outrageous remark bumps up the ratings.”
