Have you ever tuned in to ESPN’s “Pardon the Interruption” and thought to yourself, “Eh, this is pretty good, but it’d be better if instead of Tony Kornheiser and Mike Wilbon, they had New York Times reporters Andrew Ross Sorkin and Joe Nocera, and instead of cracking jokes about sports, they had a weird debate about the foreclosure crisis”?
If you have, then we feel sorry for you, but also feel obligated to present this video:
Sorkin takes the position that the foreclosure scandal is overblown. He also pronounces “scandal” as “scandale,” the French word for “scandal.” Nocera takes the position that the foreclosure scandal is important. He pronounces English words the English way.
