Our Ignorant Newsies – Winter Olympics Edition

Watch any local newscast and you’ll hear or read at least a dozen errors in English, but usually the national news is more professional. Usually. Tonight, however, I had the displeasure of listening to Alpine skiing commentator Bode Miller and some other NBC sports guy.

Sports guy: “This is his first time at the Olympics. He’s in unchartered territory.” (should be uncharted).

Miller: “He’s being really laxadaisical.” (should be lackadaisical or lax, but not both combined)
