Grammar peeves

OK, I am going to get in trouble now . . .
Right after the mispronunciation of "nuclear" (just say atomic) is
"The thing is, is . . ." and its various offspring.
Language irregularities don't really bother me tho, unless they distract me
from understanding.
I keep hearing broadcast journalists using "is, is"--
