In response to accents..., written by P. Bingham on April 22, 1998 at 01:36:50
...........Why, with the advent of radio and television, have we (Americans) maintained any dialects at all. This question has bothered me for some years. I was a speech major and I spent 18 years in radio and TV broadcasting. With all of these announcers with midwestern dialects and the amount of time that we are exposed to them, how have we maintained regional dialects that are so strong? Why don't we all sound like Walter Cronkite?
