Diane Sawyer to Interview Obama on Monday

sawyerobama_1-22.jpg“ABC World News” anchor Diane Sawyer will sit-down with President Obama on Monday for an interview ahead of the State of the Union, according to the show’s producer Jon Banner.

Banner writes, “We have had a long standing request to talk to the President before his State of the Union speech Wednesday night and it comes after arguably the most difficult week for his administration.”

The interview will air on Monday Evening’s “World News,” which Sawyer will anchor from Washington.

Says a network insider, “Really? Obama’s third interview with ABC in 40 days — two in less than one week. This is starting to look very suspicious.”

George Stephanopoulos interviewed Obama Wednesday. Charlie Gibson sat down with the president Dec. 15.
