KTVU Oakland Erroneously Reports Names Of Flight 214 Pilots (Updated)

Flight 214

And by “erroneously”, we mean ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING???

Update: Now with video!


Update 2: KTVU released a statement through Gawker, apologizing for the mistake.

Earlier in our newscast, we reported the names of the captain and pilots of Asiana Airlines Flight 214 that recently crashed at SFO. These names were not accurate, despite an NTSB official in Washington confirming the names earlier this morning. We apologize for the inaccuracies.

Obviously, we can chalk this up as a prank, but KTVU still gets a “c’mon, son!” for letting that one slip past the editors.
