CNN on Pronouncing "Assange"

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Something happened on CNN last night, The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, I don't understand this. They're wasting audio and video on this over at CNN. This is a report on how people are pronouncing his last name. CNN actually has a long report featuring Jeanne Moos, and here's how it sounded.

BLITZER: It seems everyone is talking about Julian Assange these days, but not necessarily all in the same way. The WikiLeaks founder's name is being pronounced in some most unusual ways. Here's CNN's Jeanne Moos.

MOOS: Most of those who get his name wrong are doing it on purpose, like Rush Limbaugh.

RUSH ARCHIVE: This is not the first leak from Julian Assange.

RUSH: Now, that doesn't sound any different than the way Blitzer pronounced it. Play the sound bite again there, Ed, "seems everybody is talking about Julian Assange."

BLITZER: It seems everyone is talking about Julian Assange these days, but not necessarily all in the same way. The WikiLeaks founder's name is being pronounced in some most unusual ways. Here's CNN's Jeanne Moos.

MOOS: Most of those who get his name wrong are doing it on purpose, like Rush Limbaugh.

RUSH ARCHIVE: This is not the first leak from Julian Assange.

RUSH: I mean it's hardly any difference. I'm just emphasizing Assange, but it's not fundamentally different from the way Blitzer pronounced it. Well, I wasn't pronouncing his name when I bleeped myself. I was calling him a name when I had to bleep myself. Anyway, and I had to bleep it because I used the first three letters of his name, Assange, in a way that is not proper for family programming.
