NewsBreakerNov 07 '12

Host @DavidBegnaud delivers breaking news and today's trending buzz in 45 seconds.  ABC’s Diane Sawyer spurred a flurry of Twitter jokes Tuesday night when she delivered a less-than-stellar live performance reporting on election returns. The Associated Press reports that the news veteran “spoke more slowly than usual while seeming to prop herself up on outstretched arms at the anchor desk.” She also referred to the president as “Orama” at one point. Another time she called him “President Barack,” Fox News reports. Twitter users wasted no time in cracking jokes about Sawyer’s slip-ups, accusing the anchor of being drunk on the air: “And Diane Sawyer declares tonight’s winner is…chardonnay!” — They Might Be Giants (@tmbg) “‘You do it.’ ‘No, YOU do it.’ Producers fighting over who tells Diane Sawyer during the commercial break that Twitter thinks she’s drunk.” — Karyn Spencer (@karyninny) “America’s big decision: NBC has an ice rink. ABC has drunk Diane Sawyer. There are two Americas tonight.” — Joseph Scrimshaw (@JosephScrimshaw) ABC officials have not commented on the matter.
