Diane Sawyer: “You know, I wanted to sit on a jury once and I was taken off the jury. And the judge said to me, ‘Can, you know, can you tell the truth and be fair?’ And I said, ‘That’s what journalists do.’ And everybody in the courtroom laughed. It was the most hurtful moment I think I’ve ever had.”

Perhaps Sawyer should get someone to look in to why a collection of random citizens would react that way. I wonder if she knows anyone who has any experience in finding out what’s really going on.
