Diane Sawyer Has Some Enormous Cajones
I think Diane Sawyer has proven to be about 200 percent better at being ABC's new evening news anchor than anyone in recent history.
But what has really impressed me about her since taking the anchor position is her willingness to go on assignment to the biggest, most dangerous shitholes on Earth.
Last week she was dodging bombs and bullets in Afghanistan, now she's in Haiti wading through rubble, dead bodies and so much human misery it's a wonder she's not sobbing on camera.
She's in her 60's and married to zillionaire Director Mick Nichols, but rather than staying in her mansion or spending her time shopping and traveling to the world's most glamorous vacation spots, she's out there doing journalism's heaviest lifting.
She was being wasted on Good Morning America. She's much better suited to The Big Gig.
