Diane Sawyer and Emo-Journalism

sawyer_2-5.jpgThe LA Times’ Mary McNamara pens one of the more unique critiques of Diane Sawyer‘s short tenure at the “World News” desk thus far, describing Sawyer as “the Katharine Hepburn of the newsroom” and “blending the undeniable if troubling trend toward emo-journalism while still commanding the gravitas necessary for a serious news organization.”

McNamara compares Sawyer, at length, with her female competitor CBS’ Katie Couric, writing:

While the two share a gender and some job history similarities — Couric still contributes pieces as a correspondent on “60 Minutes” and both came off successful morning show runs — they are in tone and mien as different as night and day, or Anderson Cooper and Wolf Blitzer.

Other notes from McNamara’s analysis: Sawyer is “a big head-bobber,” she has a “slightly sideways approach,” and “often seems to be frowning.” We said it was unique.
