Diane Sawyer: Interviewing Children ‘Can be Scary Because They See Straight Through You’

Diane Sawyer on Fusion“World News” anchor Diane Sawyer dropped in on the new ABC/Univision network Fusion earlier this week, appearing on “America with Jorge Ramos.” The two anchors — who go head to head on the evening news on their respective networks, albeit in different languages — talked about gun control, the changing media landscape, and how Sawyer prepares for interviews with children.

As the first anniversary of the Sandy Hook massacre approaches, Sawyer talked about children’s access to guns, highlighting the age children are most likely to shoot themselves with a gun at home: “three years old,” she said. The veteran anchor also stressed the importance of finding areas of agreement on the hotbed gun issue.

Ramos asked Sawyer how she approaches interviews with young children differently, with Sawyer acknowledging that “children can be very scary because they see straight through you,” as “they’re dealing in a purer kind of dialogue.”

The two also touched on new media, where Sawyer points to digital media as a catalyst forcing new ways of thinking among traditional journalists.

George to Jorge: One of the Things I’ve Learned is to Let Go

JorgeGeorge304During the first of what may be a recurring segment on the new network Fusion, Univision anchor Jorge Ramos and ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos, along with Fusion anchor Alicia Menendez, chatted about politics, policy and the news business, including the “GMA,” “Today” show rivalry and Monday’s “GMA,” “Despierta America” crossover episode.

Jorge also asked George what was the secret behind his transition from working in the White House, to becoming a political pundit, to anchoring the news.

“The secret is to always dance on the inside, not the outside,” joked Stephanopoulos, known for his straight-laced role on “GMA.” “One of the things I’ve had to learn in the morning, is to let go a lot of that preparation and just go with the moment…go with the flow.”

Both Jorge and George host Sunday morning public affairs shows on their respective networks. Jorge’s secret: he tapes “Al Punto” on Fridays.

“I gotta work on that Friday afternoon taping thing,” said the ABC George.
