Good lord I can't stand that woman. Always looks like she's drunk or on pills or something.

Could've been because she was drunk AND on pills or something. But dayummm she was hot.

Probably just tired.  In addition to her duties on World News, she's reportedly been caring for an ill relative.

CSB: in New York City some years ago, managed to get tickets to the day's shoot (and got to meet Paul Shaeffer, Biff, and that weird asian guy with the sandwich shop next tot he theater).  Our seats were first row, which sounds great, but they were the worst seats since we were right behind the cameras and various cue card people and so on.

but still cool since before they started shotting, Dave did about 5 minutes of preshow warmup maybe 5-10' in front of us.

anyways, the CSB was she was a guest, and some kid that rowed around the world in a boat.  she was incredibly pretty in person.

I never knew.  No, not ever.

Did anyone even see the ABC Evening News during her run? I'm old, I did, just a few out of boredom and nostalgia. It was like watching Lifetime. Every news story was wealthy white suburban housewife oriented. It was insane. The 1/2 hour news shows are horrible now and why anyone pays them any credence is perplexing. Not Like CNN/Fox/MSNBC are any better -- a good half of their broadcasts are reruns now.

So, Sawyer, who makes five time the median American income, interviews Hildebeest, who makes ditto, and asks her if she's ashamed to be making so much money. Wonders if HRC is out of touch.

She always looks out of focus.  ABC news looks great in HD, except for her face.  Are they hiding the wrinkles or something?

I Wanna Poop In Diane Sawyer's Mailbox
And not just cuz I want to hear it splatter
Let's see if she keeps that fake concerned expression
When she finds her mail adrift in fecal matter
I wanna poop in Diane Sawyer's mailbox
It's just something I feel I've got to do
And I'd leave a note that says "I've watched that 20/20 crap
And I've listened to the endless shiat you spew
So I figured that I'd give some back to you!"

Diane Sawyer always speaks as if the audience are mere children to be humored. Her phrasing reminds me of a patronizing,condescending person who uses a pretense of "caring" to prove her point.
Good move,ABC.
Good riddance, Diane.

I can't watch ABC News anymore because of that exact reason. It's a bunch of sensationalist junk, Good Morning America is even worse.
 
2014-06-25 11:36:47 PM
"At the end of last year Diane Sawyer started a conversation with [former ABC News president Ben Sherwood] about one day stepping away from 'World News' and devoting her boundless energy full time to a team which will create and commission original reporting, big ideas and interviews for all platforms," explained ABC News president James Goldston in an e-mail to staff. "As much as she loved leading 'World News' to new heights...Diane decided that now is the moment to concentrate full time on tackling big issues in new ways."

Such bullshiat.  She's past the day when she could be the face of ABC Evening News.  This wouldn't have happened if she was a he; he could have continued on being a news reader until he was way into his eighties.  But he's a she.  Too bad.

Agreed.  One of the best comic strips ever.  I had forgotten many of their references, until seeing this thread.

I remember when she was reporting from the scene of an earthquake, (bad one.  I can't remember what country it was in, but it was a couple of years ago..).   The camera crew is focusing on a woman, standing in front of the absolute pancaked rubble that used to be her home.  Dianne puts a mic in front of her face and says.....

"What happened to your house?"

Wow....  just wow...
