I was listening to the radio and they played this clip and from the first name I was thinking something seemed a litle off...
Apparently confirmed by an NTSB official.
This is how dumb the media is when trying to scoop other stations. This is why you don't believe everything you hear on TV, and why when something
disastrous happens you should expect the story to change.
I'm betting someone just called in, said they were so and so with the NTSB returning a call, and in the excitement of being first with the news they
just said screw it.
I still can't stop laughing but this does highlight how dumb the media can be.
I couldn't stop laughing after watching the video of the newswoman so casually listing off totally ridiculous names.
I stopped laughing when I read everyone call it "racist" to have fun with names.
They could have said the pilots were:
I'm sure nobody would have mentioned anything racist if that was the case.
But that wouldn't make sense as it was an Asian airline. The colbert skit shows that fun with names can be applied to any other nationality. I'm
sure a lot of "western" names could sound like funny things in other languages, and I bet they take full advantage of it too.
Calling non-events like this racism only distracts from TRUE racists. Making some fun with foreign names isn't racist, and if you think it is, you
have obviously NEVER seen real racism.
