Sum Ting Wong? You Bet There Is!


H/T: Goes to The Daley Gator for this one. Fortunately the broadcaster didn’t pronounce the third captain’s name correctly. Did she catch on at the end of her report that she was being pranked?

Here’s One Of The Most Unfortunate Local News Screwups Ever – Awful Announcing

.

KTVU in the Bay Area had one of the most cringeworthy oversights you’ll ever see from a local newscast.  Somehow, the station was duped into publishing the names seen above as the pilots for the Asiana Flight 214 plane that crashed in San Francisco.  What’s more, there’s video of the names being read aloud on air…

First of all, two people died in the crash, so whoever thought this gag was timely or funny is a pretty terrible person.  Yes, har har you made a joke with Asian names.  Congratulations on fulfilling the fullest potential of your intelligence.

But second of all, how in the name of all that is holy does this get through numerous checks to get on air?  I’m sure someone had to call/write in this tip to a living, breathing human being.  Then we’re talking reporters, editors, and an entire flipping newsroom that had to vet it before it went on air!

Or, in this case, they didn’t.

    It’s good to see the msm get a little backlash for their sloven stupidity.

    Love the title of this post! I laughed when I heard this story, does that make me a bad person? I laughed because it is the perfect example of how far the media has fallen, they simply can no longer be trusted to report the news. It is sad though that this is the state of a media which so many people still get their news from.

    I saw this last night, and quite literally couldn’t believe it.
    Good grief, were these news people never kids? And how stupid are they?

    Makes me want to call in a missing person’s report to this station, and tell them we’re looking for “Amanda Huginkiss”.
    Oh, I’ll just LOVE to hear them announce THAT one on the 6:00 news!
