Justice Sotomayor’s name

On the “Late Show,” David Letterman aired a new segment in 2009 called the “Sonia Sotomayor Pronunciation Round-Up.” The video, found at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/06/02/lettermans-sonia-sotomayo_n_210264.html shows the myriad ways talking heads and anchors alike have screwed up the name of the would-be Supreme Court justice.

In fact, the problem has gotten so bad that the Associate Press had to publish a guide to pronouncing her name. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/06/02/how-to-pronounce-sonia-so_n_210436.html

Jon Stewart ran a similar segment on Sotomayor, which dealt more sharply with her critics, where Letterman let the video speak for itself. Stewart’s video can be seen at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/06/02/daily-show-returns-takes_n_210167.html
