'World News' Viewers Weigh in Online

Diane Sawyer regularly engages her ABC News viewers asking them to send in their stories and comments on controversial issues and topics in the news. And in two recent cases she’s turning the online comments into on-air stories.

“World News” ended Friday’s broadcast with Sawyer and correspondents David Muir, Sharyn Alfonsi, Ron Claiborne, and Bill Weir all together on set. The correspondents each featured one of the stories that viewers sent in throughout the week on the show’s webpage and Facebook as part of it’s “Going Home” series.

In addition, Sawyer’s “20/20″ special Friday night, “Islam – Questions & Answers,” was born out of questions she asked viewers to submit as the broadcast covered the controversy over the planned Islamic Center near ground zero and the controversial plan to burn Koran’s in Florida.
