Distinguished?

WUNC broadcast a news item today from its capitol correspondent, Laura LESLIE, concerning discussions about the NC state tax imposed on gasoline. In that report, LESLIE referred to Kenneth MEHLMAN, chairman of the Republican National Committee, as a "distinguished guest" at a meeting in Raleigh on this subject. In my dictionary, "distinguished" means "celebrated; eminent" or "having an air of distinction".

Yeah, I heard that too, and I also noted what a poor choice of words it was.
