Also, I have a pressing question. I already tried googling it to no avail, so maybe it’s a figment of my imagination. Why do some women newscasters pronounce their “s” like “sh” I mean, I’m not trying to be mean, but I’m thinking it’s on purpose for some unknown reason and not a speech impediment or certain kind of accent since I hear it so often. I’ve even heard women newscasters on cartoons say their “s’s” with an “sh” sound. Probably Sponge Bob so it’s totally politically incorrect. But help me understand? Have I just made the world of newscasters mad at me? Are they even called newscasters?
