CNN non-grammar

CNN should fire any “reporter” who doesn’t know English grammar. It demeans the value of the station and its content.

We often depend on valued news sources to learn the proper pronunciation of names of people and places. If they don’t even know the difference between “they” and “he”, how are we supposed to trust them on more complex matters?

Be they in print or on television, reporters’ stock in trade is words. They must learn to wield them with the depth and color used by authors, to ensure that they are communicating the truth with accuracy. It’s difficult to assign integrity to a reporter who sounds as if he was born and bred in the ghettos of Brooklyn.
