Not really Olympic-level broadcasting here folks. Brett Erlich and Kim Horcher, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"NBC doesn’t seem to be budging from its mispronunciation of “Pyeongchang.”

Despite guidance from the Asian American Journalists Association, among others, that confirms the Olympic host city is pronounced “Pyeong-ch-ah-ng” (like the “ah” sound you make at the doctor’s, according to the video), NBC is sticking with the incorrect pronunciation “Pyeong-ch-ay-ng” (rhymes with slang).

The outlet reportedly discussed the pronunciation internally, settling on the mispronunciation because “it’s cleaner,” Mark Lazarus, chairman of NBC Broadcasting and Sports, told Sports Business Journal in November. A network spokesperson did not immediately respond to a HuffPost request for comment.

NBC’s deliberate mispronunciation isn’t sitting right with the Asian community and journalists on social media, who have criticized the network for disrespecting the host city.”*
