UPDATE: NTSB Apologizes For Intern Error That Led To Fox Affiliate’s Racist Asiana Airlines Reporting Gaffe

 

UPDATE, 6:40PM: The National Transportation Safety Board has issued an apology for confirming the fake pilot names to KTVU, citing the handiwork of an overzealous summer intern. Read the full release here.

PREVIOUSLY: Local San Francisco Fox affiliate KTVU is blowing up on social media today after erroneously identifying the Asiana Airline pilots in Saturday’s SFO crash by four racist prank names during its Friday noon broadcast. “Prior to air, the names were confirmed by an NTSB official in the agency’s Washington, D.C. office,” read an apology posted this afternoon on KTVU’s website. “Despite that confirmation, KTVU realized the names that aired were not accurate and issued an apology later in the newscast.”

  1. What is even more inexcusable about this “gaffe” is that the Asiana flight crew are Koreans, but the fake obscene-sounding names are Chinese. As an example, no Korean has the last name of Wong. That’s distinctively Chinese and not just Chinese, but Cantonese-dialect (Wong in the official Mandarin dialect is “Huang”). KTVU is a TV station in the San Francisco Bay Area with a large Asian, esp. Chinese, population. I’m incredulous that no one at KTVU noticed that the fake names were not just Chinese instead of Korean, but the kind of Chinese-sounding names that are the stuff of obscene racist jokes.

     
  2. Somebody’s head is going to be on the chopping block for this one . 3rd name is kinda funny though .

     
  3. This should put to rest any questions regarding fact-checking by the MSM.

     
  4. Faceplant…

     
  5. I don’t care, I think it shows that intern has one hell of a sense of humor and will probably get a good job. Probably in politics I know I laughed

     
  6. The fact that this was aired on TV is outrageous, but what is even more outrageous is that it came from an employee of our federal governnment!
    Shameful!

     
    • Grace, it’s called gallows humor. And you are outraged because of a federal employee. Read the paper much. Sheesh, this employee is probably employee of the month compared to the rest of the thieves.

       
  7. I hate to admit it, but #3 is pretty funny. 😀

    Yeah. I know. I’m a horrible human being. 😉

  8. This airplane crash is the work of the enemy, as was the derailing of that train in Paris a couple of days ago. Thinking back there’s been a string of disasters that the MSM has made merry with. If you are on the name track then consider having an American President called Barack Hussein Obama.

     
  9. Jesus is the name above all other names.

     
  10. OK, maybe I’m twisted and I don’t find funny an airline crash story. I certainly mean no offence racially either.

    Racism is usually defined as views, practices and actions reflecting the belief that humanity is divided into distinct biological groups called races and that members of a certain race share certain attributes which make that group as a whole less desirable, more desirable, inferior, or superior.[1][2][3]
