Spanish speaking news reporters who have the nerve to pronounce their own names correctly!

spanish TV news reporter over pronouncing names

Boy, it really makes me mad when I’m watching the news and some reporter is talking about a murder or a fire and everything is going smoothly until, EL WHAMO, they sign off by pronouncing their name all Spanishy. They go from sounding like Sandra Bullock to rolling their Rs like Charo at the drop of a sombrero.

I’m sitting there eating a bowl of Honey Bunches of Oats thinking everything is dandy and the next thing I know, my head is spinning trying to keep all these languages straight! I mean, what gives these people the right to pronounce their own names correctly? The unimaginable arrogance of some people!

This is NOT an example of what I’m talking about but… well… you know.

    The second clip was the perfect way to start my morning, Listy. That split-second shot of the House of Representatives got me so hot!!!!

    I wonder if either of these women ever keep anything in their tiny boob-pockets.

    Fartface – I don’t see any “tiny” boob pockets on these young ladies.

    How about that volcano in Iceland – did you have smarty pants reporters saying “Eyjafjallajokull” with a wry smirk at every opportunity?

    Yeah, it is fucking retarded. But more fucking retarded is when the white anchor back in the studio tries to pronounce the name all Spanishy. “This is Dick Storm for Melinadelacruz Rodriguez-Villalobos…thanks for that cutting edge report on the cat fashion show!”

    The second clip…I speak Spanish and it is hilarious to hear her talking about the gun violence and murder with those cans! Score one for the pricks at Telemundo!!

    Jeff – We no longer have smart or smarty pants reporters in America. I’m sure they were just calling it “volcano.”

    Erica – Yes, those cans. Oh, those cans.

    Agreed Listy… Living in South Florida (or, as the cubans call it, ” Cuba 2″), it’s impossible to avoid it. That is why I no longer watch local news (although my local anchor also has some nice boobarrrrrones)

    Quase – Just watch with the sound off. Problem solved.

    rachel-times were definitely tough on the playground, but I wouldn’t trade my name now for the world. Thanks-it’s rare to get a compliment on it. As a matter of fact the worst fight I ever got into was with a burley “room” mother of triplets who nearly gouged me eyes out with her acrylic, airbrushed nails. Stay at home moms are supposed to be nice! Anyways, it made me tough. This was proven by a scrap I had with my father the day I finally met him when I was 20.

    Oh, and FUCK RICK BAYLESS and his over pronunciation of Spanish words.

    There’s news on TV?

    Does anybody else remember the SNL skit where Jimmy Smits played Antonio Mendoza, the new guy at a news station? Everybody kept overpronouncing his name all Spanishy. It was funny.

  13. You Just Made My List!on 05 Aug 2010 at 8:36 am

    Jonathan – No, but I will look for it now and post it if I can.

  14. Peteon 06 Aug 2010 at 7:25 am

    Yes, but leave it to a Latino newsanchor to bring you info on the latest deaths and tragedies, all while pitching a tent in your pants. Mios Dios!

    You mean “Idstickitinherskull”?


    That is so distracting, I’ve spent a whole newscast trying to guess a nipple and aureola size and gawddamit……I have to tune the following day to start all over…

  16. eddkatzon 23 Aug 2010 at 9:28 pm

    Wait a second..

    I dare any of you to pronounce “Weeki Wachee Springs” with a Spanish accent……

  17. Fredon 13 Sep 2010 at 7:27 pm

    I’m sorry Miss Rios, could you repeat that?

    Wow, the idiot directly above who linked to my post is actually too stupid to understand my simple sarcasm and thinks I am as racist and backwards as he is. What a fucking dolt.

    Trust me, you are alone.
