Diane Sawyer Wikipedia

Sawyer returned to Kentucky after college and began working as a weather forecaster for WLKY-TV in Louisville. Sawyer thought the weather was dull, so she would pepper it with quips to keep it interesting. Sawyer was eventually upgraded to a general-assignment position, although this did not hold her attention for long.

Sawyer arrived to Washington, D.C., in 1970, and when she couldn’t find work as a broadcast journalist, she applied for jobs in government offices.

Jerry Warren, the White House deputy press secretary, eventually hired her as an assistant. Sawyer began with writing press releases and swiftly progressed to other responsibilities, including preparing some of President Richard Nixon’s public pronouncements.

She worked as an administrative assistant to White House Press Secretary Ron Ziegler for a few months before rising through the ranks to become a staff assistant to US President Richard Nixon.

Years later, Sawyer was identified as Deep Throat, the source of confidential information leaks to writer Bob Woodward during the Watergate crisis. W. Mark Felt was identified as Deep Throat in 2005, however on his deathbed, Rabbi Baruch Korff — a longtime Nixon confidant and supporter known as “Nixon’s rabbi” – stated Sawyer was Deep Throat. Sawyer laughed it off and became one of six people who petitioned Woodward for a public denial, which he received.

When Sawyer returned to Washington, D.C. in 1978, she worked as a general-assignment correspondent for CBS News. In February 1980, she was appointed to political correspondent and began appearing on Morning with Charles Kuralt weekday programs. On May 13, 1981, the president of CBS News introduced Sawyer as co-anchor when the morning news show was enlarged from 60 to 90 minutes. She made her debut on September 28, 1981, and immediately made an impression on the audience.

She was the first female correspondent on CBS News’ investigative newsmagazine 60 Minutes in 1984. She joined ABC News in 1989 as a co-anchor of the Primetime Live newsmagazine alongside Sam Donaldson. She co-anchored ABC’s 20/20, a newsmagazine, alongside Donaldson on Wednesdays and Barbara Walters on Sundays from 1998 to 2000.

Sawyer returned to morning news as co-anchor of Good Morning America alongside Charles Gibson on January 18, 1999. The assignment was ostensibly brief, but her performance in it, as measured by a narrowing of the gap with the front-runner, was anything but. She remained in the job for nearly eleven years, thanks to NBC News’ morning show.

Diane Sawyer Son

Diane Sawyer Brittany Spears

Justin Timberlake faced flak almost immediately after the release of Framing Britney on February 5 due to his treatment of Britney Spears following their 2002 breakup. The doctor claims that he “weaponized” his sadness and helped ruin Spears’ reputation, citing everything from his “Cry Me a River” video to an interview in which he happily acknowledged to sleeping with her.

Diane Sawyer, in a 2003 Primetime interview, asks Spears about her divorce with Timberlake—and a lot more. The film Framing Britney features video from that interview, which has sparked backlash from fans.
