Dumbing Down

Why is it lately that the media is dumbing us down with bad grammar?  How often do you see wanna instead of want to?  It is suddenly everywhere. I have seen numerous videos on Facebook including preteens, mothers, fathers, and teens complain about poor vocabulary among other topics. They all are excellent speakers with perfect vocabulary. I saw a woman today state that in her child’s school there was no hatred particularly regarding ethnicities and religions. Her speech contained the same topic and facts that the other people stated. As I stay away from politics all I can say is that all the speakers I have seen reference good vocabulary.  The dumbing down includes ridiculous articles about foolish nonsense.  It’s as if we are all stupid, but, of course, we are not. Using poor vocabulary in adverts in America just makes the country look pathetic. We all went to school and studied to the best of our ability. Some of us excelled in all areas, a few not quite as well.  However, we were all taught the correct way to speak with good vocabulary. It makes me wonder what teachers and professors think regarding this dumbing down.  We all were taught to put our best foot forward.  How can using this type of terminology make anyone look successful particularly in an interview or at a business meeting? These are my thoughts, what are yours? The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
