It's not just regular knuckleheads, it's highly paid newscasters and actors. Literally, I can not stomach Los Angeles news anymore because of this. Instead of what are you doing? They say, What are you do-eeen? or Instead of happening, they say happen-eeen. George Clooney is one of the worst offenders in the Descendants and he's an old fart.
While I'm bitching, the word jewelry is pronounced jew-uhl-ry not jew-luh-ry.
One could go on and on regarding this subject, so I'll just stop now.
Stop sounding stupid.
