Just In: The tv station pulls a pun with the air craft crash. Using slang ( racist) names for the pilots.

I am still searching for, but haven't found, all the news coverage of the Asians protesting and marching. Yelling racism, profiling, screaming brutality, and holding out their hands for retribution. Where is the outrage among the Asian community?
Sure, the Airline company may be upset over it, but what about the general population?



Nevermind...

The station issued an apology today, stating that these were not actually the names of the pilots, but rather a transcript of the last 10 seconds of tape on the cockpit voice recorder. Twisted Evil

Ahh, good ol' KTVU. Bay Area's "top" news source. Looks like they need to hire a couple new fact checkers.

Hilarious. Laughing

What's the big deal? It's just standard 21st century "journalism" . I'm surprised that a Fox station did not originate it Twisted Evil  Twisted Evil

Maybe it is all lost on me, but...  I don't get how this is funny. The news agency deserves to be sued.  Nuff said.

They ARE getting sued. Saw it on the news today. And that isn't funny at all. No

The lawyers and the IRS.

The winner gets taxed on the entire amount awarded -- before the weasels take their cut. He's frequently left with essentially nothing after court costs &c. are paid (non-deductable). It's a racket that deterrs most from even suing.  Twisted Evil

Turns out an intern at the NTSB confirmed the names when the station checked. Of course the student was fired.Rolling Eyes

Honestly, I don't think the humor lies in the names themselves; it's a cheap, grade school level joke. The real humor comes from the fact that so many people failed to realize it was a joke before it blew up in their faces. Kinda like how every now and again, some hapless news organization will republish or otherwise react to an article in The Onion as if the paper were a legitimate news source.

HC - agreed 100%


I find it very had to believe that the station did not catch the names and make the connection.  scratch

When it gets to the Rubber Room, I have something related to include. Let's just say a group of Taiwanese animators went a step further, making fun of US stereotypes of Asians, and it really takes things to another conceptual level. Twisted Evil

What I find so funny about it is not the prank itself, which is remedial humor at best, but the fact that stuff like this makes it past the filters of a "critically acclaimed" news department. If there's ever proof of why we should question the news that's presented to us, here it is. Furthermore, let's face it, most people just don't read anything anymore, period. It used to be that most people read quite a bit and a portion of those folks had good to decent analysis skills, but now people don't read squat even if their jobs depend on it. The KTVU news team actually issued an on air apology where they admitted that no one in the newsroom actually read the names prior to the list being put on the teleprompter.

Whoever allowed Sum Ting Wong & Wi Tu Lo to make it past their filter is stupid and should not have that job.

Now when I read those names, I see a sequence of events and not the names of Captains. Laughing

Sophomore humor (and cojones) at their finest.  I liked it because it let me know there were still young people with minds & stones out there.

Outfits like that take themselves entirely too seriously. Watching somebody take them down a peg or three is . . . refreshing. Kind of renews your faith in the human spirit.
