It is not because I am against American accent. I just don't think there is a need to strictly onl ...
"I know there some presenters speaking like they have marbles in their mouths."
I much prefer the American presenters, they speak clear, fluent English, unlike many of their Chinese counterparts. There is one in particular that sounds so fake, trying so hard to imitate American accent, but falling flat, very irritating to listen to him; his name is Zheng Junfeng, anchor for Global Business at 9 pm! The other Chinese anchors are Ok because they don't try to fake a foreign accent! The other Global Biz anchor, Michael Wong is fine, his foreign accent sounds fluent and natural, probably because he grew up in the West! Zheng is 100% local Chinese with a fake American accent! CGTN should have him replaced by someone who speaks fluent English minus the fake foreign accent!
Sorry, I disagree with your demand for CGTN to have all local presenters; the American ones do a better job, they are very well versed and know their stuff, so they should be retained, otherwise the messages the station try to convey would be lost through the mangled English pronunciation, fake foreign accent and poor current affairs knowledge, of the local presenters!
