KTVU Flight 214 Epic Fail (reports pilots names Sum Ting Wong, Wi...)
youtube.com ^ | 7/12/13

Posted on 07/12/2013 3:04:40 PM PDT by GSWarrior

Bay Area news station KTVU just reported that the pilots of Asiana's disastrous flight 214 were the crack team of "Sum Ting Wong," "Wi Tu Lo," "Ho Lee Fuk," and "Bang Ding Ow."

Despite the names obviously being just a bunch of racist jokes, KTVU, which has since apologized for the report, claims in a statement given to Gawker—and read on the air—that an NTSB official confirmed the names to them earlier today.

EARLIER IN THE NEWSCAST WE GAVE SOME NAMES OF PILOTS INVOLVED IN THE ASIANA AIRLINES CRASH. THESE NAMES WERE NOT ACCURATE DESPITE AN N-T-S-B OFFICIAL IN WASHINGTON CONFIRMING THEM LATE THIS MORNING. WE APOLOGIZE FOR THIS ERROR.

Update: NTSB Public Affairs Officer Peter Knudson just media that the NTSB's policy is to never give out pilot names in these situations, which contradicts KTVU's claims. "I don’t know who [KTVU] got that from, but we do not release names," he said.

This is not satire. Station has already issued apology.

This station has been below water talent&news wise for a long time, the liebral&green bias is obvious. I like a couple of the weather folks, that’s about it.

If I was getting on board that plane, and saw the duty roster, I think I’d get back off, ASAP.

The flight engineer was Too Hung Hi and the chief flight attendant was Wang Gang Bang.

They blamed it on the NTSB.

This was reported by Won Hung Lo, confirmed by producers Willie Makit, and Betty Dont.

They will soon be paying their lawyer to defend them, Mr. M.T. Wallet.

Never mind, on another thread I saw that the station has already acknowledged it, so this looks authentic, thank God, since I really dislike unverified emails that turn out fake.

This newscast will live in Infamy.

I heard that the NTSB actually confirmed these names and then realized "Sum Ting Wong." Video (29 secs of actual TV News show.

What I find funny (or pathetic) is the idiot talking head that just read the names off without even a hint that, indeed, “sum ting” was in fact “wong” with the names.

What I like about the original list is that all the names describe a plane that is going down, and then crashes. #3, Ho Lee Fuk, reminds me of what I have heard are the most common last words before a crash, "Oh Sh**!" Same kind of expression.

I'll bet that news station, which the airline is suing, will either

1) Create a new policy that requires several people to review scripts before going on the air, or

2) (If they already have such a policy) Hand out a stern warning that everybody will do it or else...
