By far the funniest live TV prank EVER! Proves how mindless hosts are.

I'm still laughing. It also shows how news pundits mindlessly spew whatever the teleprompter tells them without question or second thought. Enjoy!

Lord Acton, Lord Chief Justice of England, 1875 - "The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the People v. The Banks."

I get it. Those names are Cantonese.

That's very offensive.

Don't feed the pandas. Ever.

Mindless talking heads don't think.

Too soon?

Yes. It's especially sad about the Chinese girl that got hit by the firetruck- my god....

That didn't stop me from spraying coffee out my nose when i saw this, I almost cried I was laughing so hard- Epic trolling.

Concerning

What concerns me about this is: Exactly how many hands and eyes did this list of names go past without a single person saying "Hey, wait a minute?" It must pass through quite a few before making it's way onto the teleprompter to be read on the air.

And if such gross misinformation as fake racist pun names can make it onto the news, what else is being misreported because somebody isn't paying attention or properly cross-checking their sources? It demonstrates to me just how little the media can be trusted. We have been so conditioned to take whatever the media says as absolute truth and not question it. Many of us have been breaking out of that recently, but there are many more still in that mindset. This demonstrates just how ill-informed our own informants are.

All that to say: What this symbolizes really bothers me.

Yeah, that's why I immediately thought red herring...

I figured this was done on purpose to allow the entire coverage of the event to be about this controversy rather than something else.

And then this: "The names were presented by the station, to the intern for confirmation," said NTSB spokeswoman Kelly Nantel. "The intern did not make up the names and provide them to the station."

Of course this is just speculation on my part, but gees, someone obviously wanted this on air, it made it on air, and has gotten a lot of media attention. I think the airline industry as a whole would much rather this be the discussion than an airplane crashing or laxed maintenance practices.

Listen to

what she says towards the end:

"and the NTSB has confirmed these are the names of the pilots on board flight 214"

Completely inaccurate of course.

hilarious

thanks

Nothing like a deep and thorough laugh.

This is one of the funniest things I've seen as well. Much appreciated, great post.

Not That Funny

First. it does not prove mindlessness. All it proves is that they were not informed in advance of the text. To prove this, ask anyone you know to read the screen out loud. Even people you know who are not mindless.

Second, it's in really poor taste, and the parents and families of the three dead victims, and those still suffering, won't be amused.

Third, it smacks of xenophobia to make a joke based on language/cultural (proper name) differences.

Juvenile.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

What are you talking about?

For a "news" anchor, who should have a mastery of knowing what she's reading while reading it, who also lives in the city where the accident happened, who also should then at least know from the previous few days a FEW of the problems why the accident happened: something was wrong; too low and slow, accident. To then read "Captain Something's Wrong," "We Are Too Low," "Holy Fuk" and "Bang Ow" stylized as it was presented lol The anchor is a mindless yapping head. I looked at the "names" and started laughing my ass off before she said a thing.

Sounds like you are trying to get a tv job or that is your

mother who repeated that, MINDLESSLY. LoL. Run along.

Intern wont be offered a job
