Diane Sawyer Lands First Interview of Gabrielle Giffords Since Tucson Shooting
For the first time since getting shot through the brain during the January 8, Tucson shooting, Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords will give her first televised interview. That reporter who landed the interview: ABC's Diane Sawyer.
Giffords has only appeared once publicly since the shooting -- she traveled to Washington D.C. last month to vote on the contentious debt-ceiling bill, calling it "a bipartisan bill to avoid economic crisis."
Giffords and her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly, will sit down with Sawyer for an interview that's to be aired November 14 at 9 p.m. on ABC, according to the Associated Press.
November 14 also happens to be the day before Giffords' new book, "Gabby: A Story of Courage and Hope" is set to be released -- which probably isn't a coincidence.
