We can’t watch every newscast, but GUARDIAN readers are out there monitoring the local airwaves. Here is the latest nomination for a TV Dope Award from reader “Steve.”
BROOKE HALE: SAT. 4/29/06 (the KBCI channel 2 Anchor ). Her lead off story was about 3rd grade kids who can’t read. Next item about a body found in Palace-ville. In the middle of the 3rd news item she corrected her mispronunciation of Placerville by explaining that she is not from this area. In the following news item she described an event that happened in “Lewisville, Kentucky”.
EDITOR NOTE– Reminds us of the two travelers arguing about “Lewey-vill, Lou avul, or Lewis-ville.” They stopped at a restaurant and asked, “How do you pronounce the name of this place?” The girl behind the counter said slowly, “BURR-GERR KING.”
Take heart Brooke, at least they are watching you!
