Diane Sawyer Either Has or Has Not Landed the First Gabrielle Giffords Interview

Gabrielle Giffords.

Earlier today, ABC announced that anchor Diane Sawyer would conduct the first sit-down television interview with Gabrielle Giffords since the congresswoman's January shooting. According to the network, the conversation would be turned into an hour-long "landmark" event set to air November 14, a day before the release of Gabby: A Story of Courage, a memoir written by Giffords and husband Mark Kelly. However, a Giffords spokesman has since told an Arizona newspaper that she has "not decided" whether she will do the interview, adding that when she "does decide ... I think a lot of consideration will be given to local media.” [Politico]
