After a contentious Election Night and day after, it was a relief to sit at my computer and chuckle at something election-oriented for a change. I wasn't watching ABC on Election Night, but if you were, you probably noticed Diane Sawyer seemd a bit "off". In fact many are coming to the determination Sawyer had a "few too many" before hitting the air Tuesday night. You be the judge!
NEW YORK - Diane Sawyer's Election Night performance left some viewers asking if she had begun celebrating Tuesday's election a bit early.
Co-anchoring ABC News' coverage, the veteran journalist struck a different manner from her practiced, straight-news-delivering style.
Sawyer spoke more slowly than usual while seeming to prop herself on outstretched arms at the anchor desk she shared with George Stephanopoulos.
"OK," she said at one point around 10 p.m. EST, "I wanna -- can we have our music, because this is another big one here? Minnesota, we're ready to project Minnesota, rrright now. ... Well, tonight we know that President Barack has won Minnesota," she rambled on, stumbling over the president's name.
Maybe Sawyer was just weary from the recent torrent of news.
Yes, she had been drinking. The general public is not a stupid as ABC would like us to believe..They will probably say it was stress or cold medication but we pretty much know she had been drinking...She has been behind Obama from the start and does not hide it very well. People should remember she was with Nixon during Watergate and she skated from that event..How she comes across is all spin. They call her a journalist, not really just another good looking women put in a position that she really is not that good doing...
