Oakland's KTVU Got Trolled Hard With False Asiana Crew Names

Posted By on Fri, Jul 12, 2013 at 3:49 PM

In yet another instance of apparently missing fact-checkers, Oakland's KTVU was taken on a sad, sad ride when it displayed the following names, which were supposedly those of crew members aboard the Asiana Airlines crash last weekend in San Francisco.

Upon further review, it's fairly obvious they were not:

You'd think they'd have picked up on the theme.
  • Gawker
  • You'd think they'd have picked up on the theme.

Seriously, aside from the names being rather obviously racist ("Man, don't Asian people have funny names? High five, bro!") that's fairly damn embarrassing.

According to Gakwer, KTVU claimed that the names were confirmed by an official from the National Transportation Safety Board — something that the NSTB refuted, as the official policy is to not give names out.

Something appears to be rotten in Oakland — aside from the Raiders, of course.
