Outstanding work, KTVU. Even better considering the demographics of the market you cover.

The person responsible for this is the greatest troll in the history of the farking world.

I don't know how the reporter didn't catch on after the first name. In fact, I don't know how anyone at the station didn't catch on. Sum Ting Wong? Really? They are all idiots and should be fired, not for being racist but for being stupid.

Do you really get credit for being a good troll when the success of your prank is entirely dependent on the trollee being unbelievably dumb?

I'm going to hell for laughing at this.

Agreed. Any smart reporter would have gotten the joke, LOL'd, then immediately apologized and quickly moved on to a story about a house fire or some robbery.

I can't believe this shiat still happens on live TV.. I had thought the legendary snow storm school closings tickers that posted real time input from the internet from 10 years (that long ago?) would be the end of good TV pranks.

/+4500 for the headline Subby, it was perfect.

Rumor has it famous Bay Area lawyer Mi Su Yu has already filed a Lawsuit against the station over this mishap.

I-Ching Ondi Cayk: It's a Fox affiliate.

A. Fox. Affiliate.

Meaning apparently everybody in the entire chain of approval for their newscasts had apparently missed all of the classic Simpsons reruns of early season episodes featuring Bart (with Lisa listening in) prank-calling Moe.
 
2013-07-12 05:53:45 PM  
What seems incredible to me is how the anchor, probably the least guilty here, says they "have now confirmed the names" which suggests some sort of redaction or fact-checking.

Then, doing their best CNN impression, they go on to fellate themselves on obtaining the most "firsts" as if it were the farking Olympics or something.

This surprises you? EVERYTHING is racist nowadays. The fact that the background of this post is white is racist.

Racism is the new Communism when it comes to discrediting your enemies.

"Confirmed by the NTSB" - Yeah right.

Seriously, how do you go back on this now?

"Yeah, we got pranked and then lied about checking the facts"
 
2013-07-12 06:02:45 PM  
They said the got the names from the NTSB. Pranksters impersonated govt officials? If the NSA was running amok they would look up the caller and have them arrested.  But it's not an act of terror so the data sits in the cold and dark, untouched.

Bang Ding Ow. Heh. And best of all, they got the word fuk on tv.
 
2013-07-12 06:04:02 PM  
But what if they are really the names of those pilots and not just a prank?
 
2013-07-12 06:06:11 PM  
Thanks, i needed that
 
2013-07-12 06:06:47 PM  
An apology in a press release for the incorrect names was made by General Manager Biggus Dikkus.

sounds fair.  it used to be the case that everyone opposed to racism was called a communist.
