I am not a mid westerner I am a New Yorker born and raised in New York  City,and as such 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 our (   metro New York ) area. They try to convey that  were less educated than the rest of the nation if we  talk like a New Yorker.
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  . And if  you go away-to college , get an education but keep the New Yorkese
