DrPainMD: Let me get this straight: she becomes a journalist, knowing that the purpose of journalism is to lie, distort and misinform, all in an attempt to sway the opinions of the viewers, then goes to work for a news outlet that lies, distorts and misinforms, all in an attempt to sway the opinions of the viewers, then gets upset that the news organization lies, distorts and misinforms, all in an attempt to sway the opinions of the viewers, and then quits. What's she going to do now? Work for another news organization that lies, distorts and misinforms, all in an attempt to sway the opinions of the viewers?

SilentStrider: If she quit one network that was praising Putin, why would she go to another that's doing the same thing?


Because they spelled her name right on the check?

FTFY. I am well aware what a glottal stop is, and it's not part of the correct pronunciation of Putin's surname. Or do we just make up our own pronunciations for major political figures now?

This is no more correct than it would be to refer to President Erhbarmah or Prime Minister Daveed Camehrown. News readers are supposed to use correct pronunciation, not just make it up because they're lazy.

So you're finally admitting you hear the glottal stop, which is an allophone for an alveolar stop in English English, and is becoming one in Murrican English.
Stop trying to use a prescriptive grammar hammer on a descriptive grammar screw.

Ask Jane Akre how well Fox News likes it when their own people point out how they're full of shiat. Hint - they fire your ass and will go to court to defend their "right" to knowingly lie.

Current events caused her to remember the journalistic ideal about fair reporting of facts.
She was perfectly fine with the system being biased until now, because it was biased against people she disliked.

Did it ever occur to your genius intellect that maybe she didn't perfectly enunciate Putin's name because she was nervous about going off script and resigning on air?

The fact that you're making such a big deal out of this makes me wonder if you've ever been exposed to different cultures. I can't imagine how miserable your life must be if something as innocent and insignificant as this pisses you off.

Bet she's working there within a week. Probably within two days. The heroine who stood up to Putin while Obama cowered. Roger Ailes will milk that for all it's worth.



If she quit one network that was praising Putin, why would she go to another that's doing the same thing?
