“ABC World News” anchor Diane Sawyer sat down with Parade magazine for a cover story running in print this Sunday. In the interview, she discusses her career, her mindset, and her approach to covering international tragedies.
For the web extras, Sawyer delivers a — maybe unexpected — endorsement of opinion programs on cable news:
“I think they are invigorating the debate. I really do. I think Roger Ailes, who runs Fox News, is smart as a whip. And I think Rachel Maddow on MSNBC is great television. I love the expression of personality that cable invites. I think we learn in lots of different ways. Sometimes we learn straight down the middle and sometimes we learn through the dialectic. When Fox and MSNBC are going back and forth we can learn a lot.”
