    Default Ooops!!

    KTVU Channel 2, a Fox affiliate in the San Francisco Bay Area, and the National Transportation Safety Board apologized on Friday for an on-air blunder by an anchorwoman that involved fake names that ridiculed the Asiana flight 214 pilots.

    Co-anchor Tori Campbell told viewers during the noon newscast Friday,"KTVU has just learned the names of the four pilots who were on board" the flight that crashed at San Francisco International Airport a week ago.

    She proceeded to read from a teleprompter the names that may have originated as a racially insensitive joke online "Sum Ting Wong," "Wi Tu Lo," "Ho Lee ***," and "Bang Ding Ow" while a TV graphic displayed the names next to a photo of the charred cabin.

    "We made several mistakes when we received this information," KTVU's apology on its website read. "KTVU accepts full responsibility for this mistake."

    Asiana Airlines announced Monday that it was going to sue a San Francisco TV station that it said damaged the airline's reputation by using bogus and racially offensive names for four pilots on a plane that crashed earlier this month in San Franisco

    Yes that is what ruined their reputation. It certainly wasn't that their pilots had no manual flying skills for that specific plane which then crashed.
