I tuned in this morning, the first in a while, to see if Jenel had improved in her speech, unfortunately she has not. She has not learned to pronounce library correctly yet. She still thinks it is liberry. Thank goodness I only was able to catch the last 5 minutes of the program.

It's called an "accent", and 99% of the people up here have one as well. If we were to go to another market to do news, people would make fun of us for our flat a's, etc.

Among dozens of other things that these upstate inbreeds are known for. Poor education. Low standards. Gullibility and feebleness. You know.... the "CNY" water!

It is called uneducated. I have relatives that are from Maryland and they do not talk like she does. Hers is plain ghetto slang.

Don't you think she was hired to cater to the African American viewers? Market research might have shown WKTV that they niether get up in the morning nor care about the news.

No, it's called an accent. I've lived out of this market for half of my life and coming back I realized how idiotic people around here sound.

We finally get rid of Shipman and we get asshole Powles.
If he raises his coffee cup one more time and points it at the camera because 5:00 AM is sooooooooooo early I may drive up Smith Hill and ram it up his butt.

You know what the saddest thing about this is? You people care way too much. I bet you are all 100% perfect at what you do all the time. Keep watching the 5am news closely because it's really worth piling on theses people. Give them and yourself a break and lighten up.

You sound like a spoiled brat. I've met a bunch of downstaters that are idiots as well. They're all over. Except for you of course.

I have noticed that people who grew up in this area have really poor diction and terrible pronunciation. I don't know if it is a result of the educational system or just plain laziness.

Actually I am the best at what I do and when I feel I'm not I will stop doing it.
It just intrigues me that just 50 miles down the road in Syracuse they could produce a show that is so much more pleasant to watch.
In some cases they give us more Utica news than the bobbsy twins do without all the mindless chatter and banter.

That happens everywhere. It's easy to target this area as it's, well, an easy target for anything negative. I know many people in our area that are intelligent and speak perfect English. I also know some people that do not. It's unfortunate that people who don't use perfect diction or pronunciation are looked down upon. Some of those people are the nicest people I've ever met.

Congratulations for being the best. That's not easy to do. I'm a little scared to ask you what you're the best at but I'm willing to bet you do it to yourself. By the way, Syracuse is a bigger market and should be better. So keep racking your brain and watch for all the mistakes they make on WKTV.

If English is your native tongue, there is no excuse for not speaking properly. The deterioration of language is a sign that our culture is crumbling. I'm afraid we are entering another Dark Age. It makes sense- intellectual decay and economic collapse.

Don't be afraid to ask sweetheart. I build custom homes ALONE as in without helpers and have been doing it for 40 years. I still work 6 days a week and when I get up at 4:00 AM to catch a little news before I put the coffee on I would like a little professionalism. I wish I did need to rack my brain to spot their mistakes but Jenel blows a word in the first sentence out of her mouth.
Yesterday it was Shy ites. That's a kind of Muslim I think. You would think that people in the news business would listen to other newscasts. The words this girl slaughters absolutely blow my mind. She just mindlessly reads a teleprompter as if she's from another planet. The good thing though is that every morning she is sooooooooooooooooooooo glad we're with her.Happy.Wednesday or Happy almost Thursday.

What's so wrong about being happy? More people should try it.
