TRUE GRASSROOTS DEMOCRACY WAS ON PARADE LAST NIGHT — when Twitter talked back to ABC News about a suspiciously sloppy and slurring Diane Sawyer.
ABC’s election night anchor was either deliriously tired or inconveniently tipsy, with many on the social network betting on the latter. One subversive opportunist took advantage of Sawyer’s awkward appearance and created a “Drunk Diane Sawyer” account on the social medium most suited for snap.
Below is a clip of some of Diane’s bizarre delivery Tuesday night. But the video at the bottom is even more intriguing: it shows Sawyer sipping from a filled-to-the-brim wine glass and pulling out a pill bottle while behind the desk. Who knows if it’s wine — but last night’s performance hints that maybe it could have been.
