Diane Sawyer

Drunk, Tired or Flustered?

Diane Sawyer
was the toast of ABC last night. The question -- was she toasted?

A wacky Sawyer, slurring her words and rambling on about nothing, spoke haltingly as she tried to navigate the election returns.

Lots of viewers turned off their TV sets wondering if Sawyer was anchoring with a .12 blood alcohol level -- i.e., she seemed really drunk.

One thing's for sure ... Something very different was going on with her as she clumsily threw to reporters in the field.

Watch the video and judge for yourself.

I dont think she was drunk..She knows what night the election is..Why would she drink when she knows she has to go on the air..Maybe she should go to her doctor and make sure she isnt having a mini stroke or something

Ms. Sawyer had to be totally exhausted from the long day of reporting. She was not "slurring" drunkly, but, from talking all day and into the evening about the election,the candidates, and I, for one, applaud both Diane and George for making the evening clear and entertaining. Glad it's over---Glad we can move on.

Damn right she was drunk and you can tell everyone was uncomfortable with her under such conditions.

She should be fired immediately. Those guys were totally on the spot - and one of them held back laughing.

They have already come out and said "exhaustion" after her amazing coerage of back to back Hurricane Sandy & now the election.

Not the first time it has happened either! Wonder what their excuse for this one?

ohreally    

yes. yes she was.

What sealed it for me was when she said exaggerated "MINnesota" and when she asked about the exclamation point being added to FORWARD.

Lmao wtf. that was epic though. Good for her.

If she wasn't drunk, she needs to be concerned because she might have been having a mild stroke.
