This is one of those, 'I can't believe this actually got by' moments from a news station.



Asiana intends to press charges.

Sorry if this is a repost, if so, I'll merge/delete.

Haha!

Please tell me that clip came from The Onion.

It reminds me of that SNL De Niro skit.

certain things- even an airline crash where most survived, not really good humor material, imo.

Very true, I was a bit shocked that:
A) the NTSB reviewed the names.
B) the NTSB leaked the names.
C) KTVU aired the names.

I don't think Asiana intends to go after the NTSB, perhaps because the actions of the intern were clearly outside of the scope of what they are allowed to do in their positional requirements.

Could be in bad taste for some.

Could also be seen as a small example of the kind of shoddy journalism that takes place everyday, except it's often on a much grander scale w/ greater significant implications.

Are you stupid? One is laughing that the anchor lady read those names out loud.

Definitely thinking of Anchorman when this happened, they really do read what is on the TelePrompter.
