These next two clips are from around 1987. Diane Sawyer, for those of you who don't know, actually claims to be a real, live "journalist". Give a listen to these clips and let me know what journalistic skills she demonstrates here:
Go ahead and say it...the word that comes to mind when you think about the Great Diane's Interviewing Skills is "sycophant". ABC World News is going to be so much more factual with her at the helm, you can just tell, huh?
Now check out Whoopi Goldberg's words of wisdom regarding Polanski's crime.
The irony here is that Whoopi calls herself a humanitarian and an child advocate. Yeah. I'm not sure how you can advocate for children and still think a man can have consensual sex with a 13 year old. Those positions would seem to be diametrically opposed. But that's just me, with my uptight, judgmental thinking, I'm sure. I'm simply far too narrow minded and downright provincial to understand the highbrow workings of the media and/or Hollywood "artists".
(And people wonder why I'm so fed up with liberalism....)
