I cant believe the people running the news fell for this :huh: As tragic as the plane crash was, this is pretty funny.

Almost wishing the incident was actually a satirical work of fiction, I'd feel better for having laughed at this.

At 5:30 PM today, KTVU executive Wi So Dum made an official apology for the unprofessional broadcast. He also stated that news anchor Wun Dum Ho will be? suspended without pay, effective immediately.

TV news should pay astronomical amounts of money for that crap: it was disrespectful, false and it causes a very bad image to fellow reporters and journalists, you know, the people who are really trying to find the truth and to show information to the people, not this crap.

OMG I just can't believe someone would joke with something like this. It is funny nonetheless.

News anchors are just parrots. There's that segment on Conan where they compile all the news anchors reading the exact same story word for word. No journalism happening. Go on air and read what they are given.

I love it when people get these fake names on the air, like "Anita Lai", and "Craven Morkoc".
 
This is probably the best instance ever though :)

Most of those stories on the teleprompter, and even in most print, mostly come from the AP and Reuters. Everyone gets the exact same story, and then they reword the information (or some of the information) contained into their "own" story. From magazines, to news websites, to bloggers, to newspapers, to TV...

 

It's a sad state of affairs.

I chuckled, but I guess this shouldn't come as a big surprise.. potential lawsuit.

"Asiana identified the pilot at the controls of the Boeing 777 that undershot its approach and clipped a sea wall before crash-landing on the runway as Lee Kang-Kuk. There were two other pilots in the cockpit at the time of the accident."

 

Kang-Kuk ... Can Cook .... well damn, there's some bad luck with names.

 

he crashed and cooked all those people
