I got a kick out if hearing how Asiana is going to sue KTVU for causing damage to their reputation over this.

Like HAVING YOUR INEXPERIENCED PILOT CRASH A PLANE couldn't possibly do that at all.

Same thing that I thought of, too

/that train left the station long ago

I thought it was funny. If somebody makes a Mike Hunt joke, people aren't all "that's racist."

Seriously though: who puts an intern in charge of something like that during a crisis? It's not going to look well on his bosses, Ahmed Adudi and Ivanna Tinkle.

I wonder if the kid will put this episode on his resume.

It sounds like he was just the guy who answered the phone when the station called.  Doing light reception work seems like it would fall under typical intern duties.
 
2013-07-15 05:52:51 PM
Did the kid just say "yes" when asked, or did he come up with the fake names in the first place?
 
2013-07-15 05:54:07 PM
If I was the intern taking the call I would have assumed it was a prank call and may well have given a sarcastic "yeah, those are the names" reply.

You have to be some kind of moran to think those names are real

Copper Spork: Did the kid just say "yes" when asked, or did he come up with the fake names in the first place?


I was wondering that too. It would be interesting to know WTF happened. Either he gave them the names or just said "yeah, sure, those are the names *snicker*" but either way I guess we can assume that he had already decided that he really, really didn't like working at the NTSB.
 
2013-07-15 05:54:52 PM

Copper Spork: Did the kid just say "yes" when asked, or did he come up with the fake names in the first place?


According to the reports he just confirmed the names.  If he'd masterminded the prank he'd have a bright future in morning drive-time radio.
 
2013-07-15 05:55:11 PM
Sure, blame the intern.

Isn't that Corporate Blame Game 101?

Gotta pay for that new plane somehow.

So was there any indication of where the idiots actually got the names from?
 
2013-07-15 05:57:30 PM
One of the teams in my fantasy baseball league has already changed its name to Sum Ting Wong. I was hoping to face him this week so I could change my team name to Wi Tu Lo.
 
2013-07-15 05:58:12 PM
I'm not sure it was the intern that did this. Isn't the chain of command used to vet or approve stories/graphics/etc? Find the chink in that chain and fire his ass.
 
2013-07-15 05:59:23 PM
So, when the TV station called the NTSB, they ended up speaking with Sum Dum Gai?
 
2013-07-15 06:00:38 PM
The intern now has time to visit Honolulu and eat at Fook Yuen Chinese restaurant in the McCully Shopping Center!!

um, it could be because Koreans and Asians are a little sensitive about racial issues. African Americans, too, in the U.S. right now. those two are off the board.

Pols, Frenchies, and Australians are legit, though. the Dutch and Germans are in the gray area right now, it could go either way.
 
2013-07-15 06:02:06 PM
Yeah, that was probably a prank that was worth getting fired over.  It's almost better that he didn't make up the names, just confirmed them.  What kind of stupid asshole doesn't notice that those are completely and unbelievably fake?

Charlie Chingas: Find the chink in that chain and fire his ass.


Oh, no...

TuteTibiImperes: According to the reports he just confirmed the names.


Since it was only KTVU that had the names wrong, I would guess that they gave the wrong names to the NTSB and got a sarcastic confirmation, or the intern didn't know who to ask so he just said they were correct.
 
2013-07-15 06:03:02 PM
This smells like a Stern fan joke to me. They have a habit of clowning the media.

WTF would he sue for?

maybe his internal documentation he was referencing ( and initial'ing and dating ) had the same names and spelling. it's a possibility.
 
2013-07-15 06:04:24 PM
Kevin Smith already already said he would hire him if he needed a job
 
2013-07-15 06:05:10 PM
The intern had to have been in on it.

How do you get a job? Get some experience. How do you get experience? Get a job.

Sooner or later, a pilot's got to take the yoke. Usually it doesn't end so badly.

So, they actually fired Mi Go Nhau?
Or was his name Li Ying Fuk?
Maybe he should call his lawyer, So Su Mi.

In other news, on a Sunday afternoon, the highest authority you can reach for official comment at the NTSB is an intern.
 
2013-07-15 06:23:04 PM
I hope the intern's name was Matt Sikes.

/mostly obscure
