Diane Sawyer seemed... off last night while reporting on the presidential elections, and by the end of the night it was a trending topic - with rumors swirling that the anchor was drunk, on medications, or simply confused. In fact, when searching in Google for "Diane Sawyer," the second auto-complete return is "Diane Sawyer Drunk."
There's no doubt that a lot of data comes through on election night, but Sawyer is a veteran of the biz... and generally getting pelting with info doesn't cause someone to slur their words.
As seen in the video below, collected by TMZ, Sawyer stumbles over a fairly simple return. "I wanna — can we have our music, because this is another big one here? Minnesota, we're ready to project Minnesota, rrright now. ... Well, tonight we know that President Barack - O'Rom... Obama has won Minnesota."
At another point, she rambled on over the introduction of an exclamation point to Obama's campaign slogan... from "Forward" to "Forward!"
