ABC News Demands, Gets Correction From Gawker

Sawyer_1.21.bmpGawker has a compilation video of Diane Sawyer‘s ABC News coverage before, during and after the inauguration. The insinuation, or rather straight-up accusation, is that Sawyer was drunk on the air.

Thanks to hero intern Bette Bentley for compiling this wonderful video of America’s Drunkest Former Nixon Staffer Journalist mumbling things about children and boots.

ABC was none too happy with the Gawker post and demanded a correction. And in true Gawker style, the correction comes with commentary. Oh, and it’s not true either. An insider tells WebNewser, “It’s 100% inaccurate and untrue. Diane had been up since 3am Tuesday and worked through GMA this morning.”
