Is it just me ? or..Are you tired of hearing Jounalists and Reporters, on main stream TV, that cannot put a sentence together, without corrupting the language ?. I just listened to a high profile ex congress member. who stated " I have just WROTE a book" etc ( hope it comes with crayons ! ). And, one of my favorites.. Jeremy Paxman, a leading broadcaster, who consistenlty pronounces Houston, as HOUSEton Texas . There are numerous other instances, from high profile journalists and broadcasters . Now, I may not always be perfect in my syntax and grammer in general, but there again, Im NOT in Journalism, print or T.V . There are posters on this site, where english is a second language, who write better than those noted. I guess education, aint what it used to be !
