Diane Sawyer Doesn't Know Her Ivy League? (WATCH)

Someone needs to brush up on her collegiate athletic conferences.

In a video chat with Politico's Mike Allen about U.S. Solicitor General Elena Kagan's nomination to the Supreme Court, Sawyer made a faux-pas when analyzing what the religious and academic makeup of the court would be with Kagan included. Emphasis ours:

"No protestants on the court now," she says. "You've got Catholics and Jewish members of the court now. You have all Ivy League if you include Columbia, of course, which we do, and there are -- what -- five of the justices went to Harvard?"

Columbia -- of course -- is the fifth-oldest college in the U.S. and one of the founding members of the Ivy League.

WATCH: The fun starts at 1:30.
