WATCH: News anchor takes offence to being corrected for pronunciation

Things got heated in studio between the anchor and his guest.

Fox News

On Wednesday, 12 August, ECR newswatch reported that USA Presidential hopeful Joe Biden named Senator Kamala Harris (a former rival in the White House race) as his running mate, marking an historic first for American women of colour.

This story made headlines worldwide and when Tucker Carlson was talking about Harris with guest Richard Goodstein, Goodstein intervened to correct him on how to pronounce her name.

"This is something that will serve you and your fellow hosts on Fox. Her name is pronounced ‘comma’ ― like the punctuation mark ― ‘-la’… Kamala,” Goodstein said.

“Okay. So what!” Carlson asked in response.

"I think out of respect for somebody who’s going to be on the national ticket, pronouncing her name right, it’s kind of a bare minimum,” Goodstein countered.
