Image result for extra news boy cartoon signI am not a mid westerner I am a New Yorker born and raised in New York  City and as such remain proud of my Brooklyn New York accent.What bugs me is that the news on T.V. will never have  a native New Yorker broadcast the news.Even in our ( metro New York) area you’ll never hear a N.Y accent. Even if the on air news celebrity is a native born and raised New Yorker the station will insist that they quelch any a semblance of New Yorkese and try to fein some sort of Mid Western accent.
They try to convey that us New Yorkers are less educated than the rest of the nation because of  the way talk.I remember when I was  in grade school and asked my teacher what is the correct pronunciation “Water” or :Wata”(to roll the er or affix and A at the end in place of the “Er”) both are correct she replied. New Yorkers don’t loose your N.Y.  accent .If  you go away-to college to get an education that’s OK….but keep the New York acent.
