Hooked on Phonics

WHOA, I guess journalism ain't what it used to be folks. My old friend Bill sent me the link to this video of when a TV reporter from KTVU announced live that they had just learned the names of the 4 pilots on board Asiana flight 214 when it crashed in San Francisco. The news anchor read them while the teleprompter prominently displayed the 4 names, which were clearly fakes.  Obviously the newscaster and the journalism team needed a refresher course in phonics before they evah should have allowed this story to air. The names were: Captain Sum Ting Wong; Wi Tu Lo; Ho Lee Fuk; and Bang Ding Ow. Check out the video and the corresponding apology once Da Stu Pid Arses figured out their error for relying on a summer intern at the National Transportation Safety Board without confirming the information.

  1. Wow! This is amazing and it goes to show why we cannot put faith in our media. They're always twisting the facts, purposely and inadvertently. Who doesn't sound things out before making a public announcement? SMH.

  2. Not really surprised with this. Most of the wars lead today are started and influenced and lead by political fake propaganda from US news channels. They always present false things, lies and fake pictures and images of people, places, countries....

  14. Such a stupid mistake for a major network. They should have verified this first.

  15. They're so embarrassed, they've made the video no longer available.

    I'm more disgusted than anything. It was such a tragic event. Nothing about those names is funny, within the context.
