18 thoughts on “Garrett Haake Wikipedia, Bio【 MSNBC 】Age, Height, Parents, NBC”

  1. I want to know if Garrett Haake has any relatives in the Cleveland, Ohio, area. If so, he might be related to me on my mother’s side. My cousin Robert Haake, sat in front of me in high school.

  2. Weather reporters are the worst offenders against proper usage. For example, they say that a system is to the North and to the West when it is actually to the Northwest. This habit started a few years ago. I have inquired of many authorities without learning the reason for this.

  3. Garrett seems to be falling into the “hard-hitting action reporter’s” bad habit of adding a pronoun to every sentence. To say things like “Susan Chu, she…” is a fourth-grade grammar mistake. Other than that, he usually comes across as well-educated and authoritative.

  4. Dave, correct English is not made up of ideas, it is made up of acknowledged standards.

    Marlene, you are right. “Be” verbs are followed by predicate nominatives, not objects. Therefore, the pronouns should be in nominative case, not objective.

    Raul, I’m with you. More and more people are ending sentences with the superfluous (and wrong) pronoun, as in “Where is he at?” and “Where are they going to?” It drives me nuts.

    The problem is that nonstandard English is so common that standard English sounds wrong. I used to teach my students correct pronoun usage and then tell them that they needed to “read the room”. Would correct usage get them the job or get them beaten up?

    I think Garrett Haake is adorable.

  5. I was his neighbor for 2 years in a swanky apartment building in NE DC and NEVER saw his wife. Maybe they’re divorced?

  6. And Rachel Maddox, Anderson Cooper, and so many others saying things like “Where he is at.” using that “at” that’s not needed!

  7. Listened to Garrett Haake today during impeachment hearings, and was a bit startled to hear him twice say, “It was him (Sondland) who gave Ambassador Bolton…..”

    It was HIM?
    Grammar, please.

    1. How can any young people learn grammatically correct English when substandard English is what they hear daily in the media? The thing that really disturbs me is that commercial television is completely scripted. I can understand that with programming, characters need frequently to speak in the vernacular as part of the character development. With commercial scripting however, there should be no excuse for substandard English in broadcasts. You are very correct to point to the lack of understanding regarding subjective and objective pronouns. The worst cases are the ones with compound objects. I routinely hear people during broadcasts say “for you and I.” As for me, I cringe every time I hear somebody incorrectly use the subjective pronoun instead of the objective pronoun. Then I ask myself, just how educated can these people be? Did they sleep though freshman composition? I think that it is time that we demand that the FCC insists that broadcast news and commercials, at least, should comply with grammatically correct standard English. There is no excuse for scripted speech to be grammatically incorrect. Where are the editors?

  8. Hake definitely no standout here! Overall, grammar of texts prepared for broadcasters is shockingly poor!!

    1. No standout here, says Bob Sargent.

      Mr. Sargent criticizes Mr. Haake’s grammar while mis-spelling Mr. Haake’s name…even when the spelling was right there. What’s the line…don’t criticize the splinter in another person’s eye while avoiding the beam in your own.
