Fox News host butchers "Ottawa" pronunciation on air

Oct 9 2020, 7:44 pm

The internet was perplexed Friday evening by just how horribly a Fox News host messed up the pronunciation of Canada’s capital city.

Tucker Carlson of Tucker Carlson Tonight put the emphasis on the wrong syllable, saying something like “Ah-TAW-wah” instead of Ottawa.

The flub happened while he was talking about vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris, who spent some of her teenage years in Ottawa.

Carlson has so far not addressed the mistake publicly.
