Woke up this morning to this LA Times story.
Both a San Francisco Bay Area TV station and the National Transportation Safety Board apologized for their roles in the broadcast Friday of fake, racially insensitive names of the pilots flying ill-fated Asiana Airlines Flight 214.
The segment that referred to the pilots by four false names, including “Capt. Sum Ting Wong” and “Wi Tu Lo,” has gone viral and drawn heavy criticism on the Internet.
There is something very Wong with us when we get our news from someone and their crack news team who can read, not one, not two but four names of obvious and dubious nature. And then proceed to blame the NTSB for confirming the names.
Its still pretty funny
