About the NYC accident where the SUV went over the rail... the newscaster on CNN kept saying the vehicle hit the "center median."
Well, that was a three silloble word, which scares the wits out of anchors/producers. She was probably clarifying things for the audience, which they consider to be, not without some justification, morons.
Fox, on the other hand, will occasionally allow the use of multisyllabic words, but only if the anchor points out that, gosh, that was a big word! Clearly, Fox believes its listeners have double-digit IQs.

Might be an oldie but here goes...
In Massachusettes....So city names are funny to pronounce if your not from around here...the worst of course is "Worcestor"...I've heard "Wore-chestor the most, but it's actually "Wusster" or Wista"
People in MA do not speak the same language as the rest of the country. The words are spelled the same and have the same meaning but they have different pronunciations. Then there is the annoying practice of dropping Rs where they exist and adding them where they do not.
