Diane Sawyer Issued an On-Air Apology for Something She Said This Week

ABC "World News" anchor Diane Sawyer apologized on-air Thursday for misidentifying photos of Palestinians as Israelis standing amid ruins after an airstrike.

"I misidentified these powerful images. The people in these photos are Palestinians in Gaza in the aftermath of an airstrike by Israel, not Israelis, as I mistakenly described them," Sawyer said. "We want you to know we are truly sorry for the error.”

Mediaite reported on the error after it aired Tuesday, and ABC issued a statement acknowledging what had happened and saying it would be corrected.
