ABC's Diane Sawyer Identifies Palestinian Family as Israeli

Diane SawyerABC's Diane Sawyer committed an egregious error Wednesday night during her introduction of an ABC World News segment on the latest from Israel and the Gaza Strip.

Sawyer, in her waning months as host as the flagship evening news program, misidentified a Palestinian family as Israeli — a massive mistake in a conflict where divisions run deep.

“We take you overseas now to the rockets raining down on Israel today as Israel tried to shoot them out of the sky,” Sawyer says in her introduction as producers show video footage of Israeli airstrikes on Gaza.

The screen then transitions to a stark, smoking gray landscape that shows two young men carrying their belongings on a mattress in the aftermath of an Israeli airstrike.

Sawyer says the image shows “an Israeli family trying to salvage what they can.”
