Even though ABC News anchor Diane Sawyer had Thursday night off from the network, she still made an appearance on network news — but it was on "NBC Nightly News," reports TVNewser.com.
Sawyer was featured in a story on the broadcast, anchored by Brian Williams. In a piece about the files of President Richard M. Nixon being revealed, Sawyer was mentioned because she was a 25-year-old aide to the president at the time. According to the report, Sawyer made a critical error in judgment while on the job.
In the broadcast, it was explained that the files had turned up a memo that “showed Diane Sawyer, then a 25-year-old Nixon White House aide, got in trouble for telling a family friend he was being nominated as a federal judge. Problem is, a U.S. senator was supposed to tell him first. Sawyer apologized profusely.”
