The person actually guilty of the hoax is probably sitting at a desk in the KTVU newsroom eating popcorn.

I know who it was.

Sum Yung Guy.

Humor is destroyed by overanalysis.

It was a classic prank and a hilarious one.

All the navel-gazing needs to stop on both sides.


Agreed. And the person(s) who started the joke probably never thought it would hit the air. If I was a news organization, I would never settle for the word of an intern as well.

When agents of government can’t be trusted to follow the laws of the land, it becomes more difficult to expect lawfulness from those whom government is supposed to serve.

Seriously? Welcome to the party, author of this article.

There would be Holy Hell to pay for were this Ethiopian Airlines and the play on words were for AFRICAN names, and everybody knows it.

Heh. Thanks for the idea. I'm putting that one in the incubator for the next opportunity....

The damage done in this situation is probably incalculable at this point.

What drama queens. It was a prank and it was quite funny at that. These hand-wringers need to get a grip and move on.

The pilots and crew of Ethiopian Air were members of three tribes, the Mombaks, the Motisuh, and the Hahlawi.
