Diane Sawyer drunk on air? Don't make us laugh!

Rumours spread around the web last night that Diane Sawyer appeared drunk on air after she seemed to be slurring, however sources at the Daily Mail have said that these rumours were met with "'a lot of laughter" at the office, her colleagues clearly considering the notion utterly ridiculous. 

Sawyer was working all night on the election polls and results as they poured in from around the country. Through some of the night viewers thought she was slurring and leaning on her arms to prop her up, sparking rumours that she was drunk or on drugs, sparking a new trending topic on Twitter of "Diane Sawyer Drunk". However, the morning after the night before, as the issue can be probed, reveals that Sawyer was merely suffering from extreme exhaustion.

A source told the Daily Mail that 'Diane's been up for days and she's had many sleepless nights. She was covering the hurricane and then preparing for the election broadcast," they said. "If you knew Diane you'd realise she's one of the hardest working people on television... She likes to cram things in, she likes to have every fact at her finger tips." 

While she didn't openly respond to the accusations of being drunk, she responded to the tweets aimed at her with both grace and dignity. In two tweets, one following the other she said: "Awe for the @ABC powerhouse team. Hail the techs who kept us on air... during 25 minute power outage. Read your tweets the good, bad, and the funny. See you on @ABCWorldNews."
