Yesterday morning an intern at Gawker put together a montage of Diane Sawyer sounding drunk on GMA on the day after the inauguration. Then another intern put up this montage of Anderson Cooper messing up really badly many times on his own post-inaugural show. (Warning: it’s painful to watch Andy this way):

Now, maybe I’ve seen too many Jeff Goldblum videos, and Anderson clearly garbles his words in a way that can’t be faked, but this seems at least slightly slowed-down to me. I think those Gawker interns are messing with us. (UPDATE: I just emailed with Daniel Caron, who put this video together for Gawker, and he assures me that it hasn’t been altered in any way and isn’t a prank. Anderson was really that hungover. Wow.)

  1. I’m sure he was CRAZY tired!!!!

  2. I dislike watching any political pundit on cable networks so i found this highly amusing

  3. I actually saw this live and remembered how messed up it was. You should have seen the rest of the segment it was a complete mess. I think production was drunk too.

    I love Anderson Cooper too much to sit through this – it’s too humiliating for all parties involved.

    i really don’t think he was hungover. i think he was exhausted. that’s how i sound after i’m up for more than 30 hours. but diane sawyer? she looked pretty drunk on air.

  6. Awww. I just want to hold him.

  7. Was this the day after the inaguration? If so I will give it to him. I’m sure everyone had rather merry the day/night before & were still recuperating. Andy Coopy gets a free pass.

    Well you were absolutely right: It is totally painful to sit through. Ugh. I also watched the Diana Sawyer clip. Oy. So what I want to know is were they drunk, tired or what? They both look a hot mess. Har! Geez.
