Katie Couric and Diane Sawyer have been two of the most respected names in broadcast news for several decades, but a new tell-all book claims that the iconic journalists sank to stunning lows while fiercely competing with one another early in their careers.
In The News Sorority, veteran journalist Sheila Weller levels some startling accusations at Couric, Sawyer and CNN's Christiane Amanpour.
Newly released excerpts from the book aren't flattering for any of the women involved, and one anecdote in particular has caught the Internet's attention in a big way:
"When Diane beat Katie on an interview with a 57-year-old woman who'd given birth to twins," Weller writes. "Katie mused aloud, according to a person who heard the comment: 'I wonder who she blew this time.'"
