Watching the News

I turned on my television to watch the news. As I listened to the reporter, her English was so bad that subtitles were at the bottom of the screen. I wondered how she got the job. I alerted my wife to the situation.
“Can you believe this?” I said. “I can’t understand a word she’s saying.”
“Dear-“ she said.
“How does she have a job?”
“You-“
“And they put subtitles instead of just firing her.”
“Uh-“
“I’m trying but it’s impossible to make sense of anything she’s saying.“
My wife walked in front of the TV blocking my view.
“Listen to me,” she said. “You’re watching the Russian channel.”
“She’s not speaking English?”
“No.”
