Say it right

I've loved watching the Olympics since it's in the city I call home for now. However, one thing that drives me nuts is that all the news commentators pronounce "Beijing" incorrectly! I understand when they mispronounce athletes' names, but is it unreasonable to get "Beijing" right? I heard one guy get it right and not say "Bei-zhing." Here's some help so you can get it right, too.

How to pronounce Beijing? NBC seems unsure
