I have never seen anyone display as much grace as Barbara Walters when her co-anchor (Harry Reasoner I think) was so dismissive and rude to her; she just smiled and kept doing her job. If I end up with even half that level of class, I will consider it to be a win

Sadly I think this comes with the territory of being a woman in today's world. Women are so often expected to fit stereotypes that are placed on them, so I guess her male co-anchor just wanted to get a reaction out of her,

Barbara was the first female night news anchor and her co anchor hated sharing his air time with a woman. At least things have progressed...a little.

I am not familiar with this particular instance, but in my line of work, there have definitely been times where I have wanted to just yell back at someone for the way they were treating me. At one point I did get into a screaming match with a co-worker because he escalated the situation.

Barbara Walters is such an inspiration in so many ways and really shattered the glass ceiling.

Agree 100%, she was the gold standard for news anchors. Definitely one of my biggest inspirations

Wow. I just watched a clip online, I'm speechless... just WOW. He made himself look like a total jerk and she refused to be ignored. Good for her

It's kind of funny because he thought she was beneath him and now no one even remembers him at all, just "you know, one of her co-anchors." This amuses me greatly

New manager said last week he wants to replace me with someone less experienced and presumably cheaper. Of course being very “nice”, allowing me to take my time looking for external opportunities. My performance has always been exceed expectations. He recently became my manager. Today, he reassigned one of my projects without discussing with me. Was so annoyed. Luckily I received an offer last week from a new company that values my experience. After what happened today, I just wanted to vent.

My hands are shaking!! I just got off a call with my toxic manager who is clearly not happy I am being poached for another division. I tried to hold firm as he attempted to 20 question me, who was it, who wants me, what division, how did they find out about me? And of course the gaslighting of “why didn’t you come to me I could have helped or made introductions”. Clearly everything is about him. How have you handled such situations? What could I have done better with my abusive manager?
