Thanks to a bizarre face-blurring algorithm that ABC is using on their HD news broadcast, Diane Sawyer looks like she’s in an advertisement for Claritin.
- If she instigated it: Diane Sawyer is 64 years old and looks damn good for her age. Perhaps she should check her vanity and be a model for gracefully aging women everywhere. Her wrinkles are a badge of honor and she has earned every one of them through her long career.
- If ABC instigated it: what’s the point of going HD? Now we have a sharp picture except for faces — and that’s where we look as we watch. Just go to widescreen SD and call it a day. ‘Cos your experiment in trying to hide reality isn’t working. It’s just freaking people out.
