KTVU Reports Asiana Air Pilots Were “Sum Ting Wong” and “Ho Lee Fuk”

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.

I checked & didn't see this posted yet, apologies if it is. I'm also not sure which forum this should be in, so another round of apologies if this isn't the right one.

Holy crap O.O How do you read these "names" and not realize they're fake as hell? I admit it, I laughed my a** off, but not at the racist names. I howled at the anchor's, and station's, utter obliviousness and stupidity.
They will never live this one down, and someone claiming to be NTSB gets to live their life knowing they pulled off this live-air prank.

Reminds me of the local election where the last names of the candidates was Wright and Wong.
The campaign signs read "Wright or Wong? You be the judge."

This is like something Futurama would put in one of their episodes.

Priceless.
PS: I assume this thread will get moved to jokes/hoaxes or some such.

I just saw this on YouTube.
I have to wonder if she realized halfway through reading these but kept going. I hope no-one took it seriously.
