Diane Sawyer walked away from her biggest story on 9/11

Diane Sawyer walked away from what may have been her biggest story on September 11, 2001—arguably the biggest story of her career.

Diane Sawyer was on network television interviewing an eyewitness to the collapse of 7 World Trade Center. The eyewitness is seen telling Diane on ABC News Live Coverage: "At Building 7 there was no fire there whatsoever, but there was one truck putting water on the building, but it collapsed completely."

At 5:20 PM, 47-story Building 7 of the World Trade Center collapsed in less than seven seconds. The news media buried the story. The 9/11 Commission buried the story. To this day we have no official explanation of the collapse of the 47-story 7 World Trade Center—"a draft report will be released by early 2007" according to the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology.

Diane Sawyer is an award-winning investigative journalist, and it is reported that she "will take over for Charlie Gibson as anchor of ABC's World News after the 2008 presidential election."
