Epic KTVU Fail: Anchor Reports Pilot Names
« on: July 13, 2013, 04:53:02 AM »
On today’s Noon newscast on KTVU, the station claimed it had “just learned the names of the 4 pilots on board” Asiana flight 214 which crashed last Saturday. But the station was given bad information that made it all the way into the newscast. If you read the names it becomes immediately clear this is a joke, which went unnoticed by the newsroom, producers and the anchor.

- Wi Tu Lo
- Ho Lee Fuk
- Bang Ding Ow
 
Earlier this week, KTVU touted its coverage as being not only first, but “100% accurate.”

You can't prepare for a crisis when you are in the middle of it.

Ho Lee Fuk, indeed.

But her hair remained perfect.

And now a word from ot friends at Encyte Male Enhancement products...
"Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world's grief. Do justly now, love mercy now, walk humbly now. You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it."
