Diane Sawyer Drunk? No, Says Network, Very Tired
Diane Sawyer is one of my favorite news people, she is on top of things. When she isn’t, she gets herself out gracefully. This might not be so easy. Twitter users were going crazy talking about her slurring during the election broadcast.
She was slurring words, coming up with broken facts and even mispronounced the President’s name.
The thing that strikes me as odd, is Diane isn’t answering any questions or issuing a statement. Her network is.
According to an article by Amanda Crum for webpronews.comReps for ABC say she was simply extremely tired, which accounted for her propping herself up on her hands against the desk at varying points during the broadcast.
“Diane’s been up for days and she’s had many sleepless nights. She was covering the hurricane and then preparing for the election broadcast. If you knew Diane you’d realise she’s one of the hardest working people on television. She likes to cram things in, she likes to have every fact at her finger tips…and I think that came at the expense of the broadcast,” a source told the Daily Mail.
I know Diane wants to do the best she can, but I’d like to hear her answer on this. You be the judge, here’s some of the broadcast.
