Racist Joke

NTSB Intern Confirmed Racist Names

It was the intern! On Friday, California Bay Area news channel KTVU wrongly reported the names of the pilots on Asiana Flight 214 as “Sum Ting Wong,” “Wi Tu Lo,” “Ho Lee Fuk,” and “Bang Ding Ow,” all on live television. The network shortly issued a correction and apologized. But these names had been confirmed by the National Transportation Safety Board, which apologized in a statement, saying a summer intern "acted outside the scope of his authority." Sounds like someone isn't getting a recommendation letter. The NTSB press release notes that, "Appropriate actions will be taken to ensure that such a serious error is not repeated."
