Barbara Walters Names Her Most Fascinating Person of 2012

ABC’s Barbara Walters named General David Petraeus her “Most Fascinating” person of 2012. It is a repeat performance for Petraeus, who held the top spot in 2010. This year, however, he is there for very different reasons.

“We argued for months about who should be our most fascinating person, and then a Washington scandal solidified our choice,” Walters said. “But General David Petraeus was not chosen this year for his war record or his exemplary service to his country. This is about military honor colliding with sex and lies in the digital age.”

Watch, after the jump.
