I'm not the only one who has irrational hatreds. Regarding Ranting Stan's hatred of broadcasters who affect a dodgy faux French accent when pronouncing French words, the worst thing is they the French accent even if the subject isn't French. So for example General Pinochet was aloways pronounced as "Pinoshay" despite the clear presence of a 't', which is pronounced in the Spanish language.
So they are both pretentious and ignorant.
