Diane Sawyer Is Out There Blowing People

Appropriate pictures: I haz them.

Whenever I teach my non-accredited journalism course “Internet Money Make You I Can” at the local Sheraton, the first thing I teach my students is that 95% of all reporting is dicks in mouths. Later, I’ll ask for a volunteer which usually ends in me yelling, “Well, maybe if everyone stopped laughing, it’d get hard!” Except you know what? I don’t remember any of you cutting me a cashiers check for $500, so no more freebies. Anyway, thanks to Sheila Weller’s new tell-all book The News Sorority, the Internet learned that Katie Couric allegedly liked to accuse Diane Sawyer of blowing people to get ahead, so naturally we’re all going to pay close attention to that because, circling back to my main point, dicks in mouths. Via The Daily Beast:

When Diane beat Katie on an interview with a 57-year-old woman who’d given birth to twins, Katie mused aloud, according to a person who heard the comment: “I wonder who she blew this time to get it.”

There’s also a whole bunch of anecdotes about Katie Couric wooing Walter Cronkite over dinner at her house, Diane Sawyer and Barbara Walters basically vowing to murder each other, and something about Sam Donaldson getting prostate cancer, but none of those possessed a rich fellatio backstory that informs as much as it entertains. Journalism is a proud, noble profession, fuckshitbags.
