I'm half Asian

and that was hilarious!!!! I laughed so hard for a minute.

Those are closer to Chinese names too

The LOL "names" sounds not Korean at all, since Asiana is SoKor

more "Cantonese" (Chinese) sounding..if there ever were f'ing (dead giveaway) names like this.

This (idiot) NTSB intern is obviously "stereotypical" to Asians..sees everyone with "slant eyes" as "Chinese".

An NSTB intern erroneoulsy confirmed names.


"Update: The National Transportation Safety Board late Friday issued its own apology for “inaccurate and offensive names that were mistakenly confirmed” to KTVU Channel 2 as those of the pilots of Asiana flight 214, which crashed at San Francisco International Airport on Saturday.

The statement said that an NTSB summer intern, in response to the station’s inquiry, “acted outside the scope of his authority when he erroneously confirmed the names of the flight crew on the aircraft.”

Free includes debt-free!

Doesn't it seem a little

Doesn't it seem a little weird that a mere intern would be entrusted to speak to the media about such a major crash? A summer intern is a student temp after all.

I suspect a hijinx by some school pals or somewhat. LOL

Government authorities are not naturally reliable.

Although, that is what they are paid to be.

Free includes debt-free!

If only they could have gotten...

that horrible Brzinski witch to say this on air...perhaps public outcry would get rid of her!! Oh -oh...or maybe Rachel Maddow...or Rush, or Levin, or O'Reily, or Hannity, or...or...

Are news anchors really this dumb?

Are news anchors really this dumb? I have refused to watch TV news over the past 15-20 years because it has been so bad and biased and the anchors so arrogant, but WOW...if this is true, they are seriously dumb.

Spent a couple months in Galicia back in 2001.

Those Gallegos (as people from that area are called)
are pretty tough and independent. Plus, that area of
coastline right around the NW corner of the Iberian Peninsula
(Finisterra basically means "land's end") is known as the "Coast
of Death" for a good reason - graveyard of ships and all that.

Not to be taken lightly.

I almost peed myself.

Holy Fudge.

I almost peed myself.

And belly is still hurting.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

I know what you mean.

I know what you mean. Haven't laughed that hard since my Aunt Tillie got her bosom stuck in the wringer.

reminds me of...

The subservience to the teleprompter kind of reminds me of when John Boehner's teleprompter vote results were displayed before the vote was finished:

Thank you ....

... the tears are still streaming out of my eyes ... haven't laughed so hard in a long time!

Google is government.

Hysterical! But, the "media" was not "punked"

This is a joke, ala "Anchorman", made at the expense of an anchor who apparently thinks she is too good and doesn't need to pre-read her prompt. This was done by co-workers.

I bet the people in the control room were rolling on the floor howling!

Unless you can provide a source I will consider this legitimate.


Even better quality...


If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

Better version


This one isn't filmed vertically, and you can see more of the show.

If you think it's a fake............

If you think this is a fake, it appears it isn't.


The station apologized and said they will try to keep things like this from happening again.

I was sure it was a fake, but it actually aired on TV.

Laughing Out Loud!


Who really called them?

You made me snort with that

You made me snort with that clip. Such a classic movie.

IF they were journalists...

IF they weren't just actors...

IF they weren't being spoon-fed from the White House...

IF they had working neurons...

Yes, they would have figured it out.

When things like this happen

When things like this happen I find myself thinking that the USA is being managed by Beavis and Butthead-like teenage kids of the Rothschilds.

Brain dead taking heads ad nauseum.

I'm sure there are many more.

Thank you for the laugh

I looked at the name on screen and didn't even notice, until it was announced.


I didn't notice at first

I didn't notice at first either, but then I ruptured an internal organ from laughing so hard.

Same thing here. Thanks for

Same thing here. Thanks for the laugh. My whole family is in tears right now!
