ABC News Exclusive: Diane Sawyer Talks to Bob Woodward in His First Interview About His New Book "The Price of Politics"
Interview to Air Monday, September 10 on "World News with Diane Sawyer" and "Nightline"
Woodward Talks to George Stephanopoulos in First Live Interview Tuesday, September 11 on "GMA"
ABC's Diane Sawyer will speak with Bob Woodward in an exclusive interview about his much anticipated book, "The Price of Politics." In a presidential election year when control of the House of Representatives, Senate, and White House hang in the balance, Woodward's reporting provides a sweeping you-are-there account of how President Obama and the highest profile Republican and Democratic leaders in the United States Congress attempted to restore the American economy and improve the federal government's fiscal condition.
Sawyer will talk to Woodward, who has drawn on internal memos, documents, meeting notes and interviews with the central players for the book, about what drove the debates and negotiations of the past three and a half years as leaders worked to forge an economic path forward for the country.
Sawyer's interview will begin airing on "World News" on Monday, September 10 and the extended interview will air later that night on "Nightline," the #1 show in late-night. Portions of the interview will be released Monday afternoon as part of the ABC News-Yahoo! News "Newsmakers" video series. On Tuesday, September, 11, Woodward will sit down with George Stephanopoulos for his first live television interview on "Good Morning America."
"The Price of Politics" will be published by Simon & Schuster on September 11.
