    Yes it is. Watch your local news. The standards have been lowered terribly. Same for radio. People using incorrect English and pronouncing words wrong. I can sort of accept ex athletes not being able to speak correctly but it's much worse than that.


    It drives me crazy to hear the letter 'W' pronounced "dubya" instead of "double you."

    Then there are the Hispanic reporters who speak good English except when they are pronouncing a Latin name. They make a big show of rolling the Rs an saying the name with a thick accent.
