Sandberg is leaning out

An ABC insider said, “Sheryl’s team were talking to producers at ‘This Week.’ After they were told the interview would be with Martha, not George, the discussions ended. Sheryl has a good relationship with George, but the decision not to proceed appeared to be based largely on that Sheryl wouldn’t be sitting with the biggest name on the show . . . not that she anticipated George would give her a sympathetic interview.”

No-nonsense Raddatz, who has reported from Iraq and the White House for ABC, famously wasn’t lured by “Lean In,” saying at a 2014 forum that women should not feel pressure to “have it all.”

Raddatz said, “I hate these terms, ‘have it all,’ ‘ban bossy,’ ‘lean in’ . . . You all have your own challenges. Everyone deals with them differently . . . If you ­decide you want a great career and to be a mother, you’re going to fail some days as a mom . . . You just are.” Of Sandberg’s quest to ban the word bossy, Raddatz added, “I don’t want to ban bossy. I want to embrace it.” And Raddatz’s advice for female success? “Don’t whine.”
