‘Jeopardy’ Allows Mispronunciation Of Michigan Landmark [Video]
If we allow this to get by, what's next? Are they going to allow saying 'SALT' for Sault Ste. Marie? Inconceivable!
Let me begin with a little context. A few months back, Alex Trebek disallowed the pronunciation of 'Gangster' for Coolio's song 'Gangsta's Paradise'.
So then how can they allow Scott McFadden, the defending champion, to get away with pronouncing Mackinac, 'MackinACK'? And the guy is from a neighboring state (Indiana) for Pete's Sake!
A lot of people have stepped up to defend this, but for me, this is high treason. This video was posted by WILX/Lansing's David Andrews.
Where is the justice?! Fix your life, Alex Trebek!
