News flash from the Korean 777 crash last week, this was actually broadcast on Fox News (http://www.mediabistro.com/tvspy/epic-ktvu-fail-anchor-reports-pilot-names-including-sum-ting-wong-and-wi-tu-lo_b97368) San Fransisco/Oakland. I almost puked laughing.

The Korean pilots names were Sum Ting Wong! Wi Tu Lo! Ho Lee Fuk! Bang Ding Ow!

Actually it is, google it and notice that the KTVU "mistake" was reported from a large number of sources including Drudge, MSNBC & Huffington Post. Here is the televised retraction.

Thought that with one read through of the names any sane person would have contacted someone else at NTSB to check it out. HO Li Crap!

Wow, you would think the news media would do a better job of fact checking, but then again, maybe not. I've seen some stuff ups on tv but this was a doozy.
