Bad pronunciation?

November 30, 2011

Your correspondent reporting on the Mapuche¬†indigenous people’s protest in Chile, pronounced their name incorrectly at least 2 times during the video.

She said Machupe instead of Mapuche, a big difference.

This was disrespectful to the Mapuche people. Please have your reporters familiarize themselves with the subjects of their stories.

We pulled the piece with the mispronunciation and replaced it with a new narration: GBU Editor
