Ho Lee Fuk: Think Media Does A Good Job Checking Facts, Having Common Sense? Watch This
The San Francisco Bay Area’s KTVU reported today that the pilots of the crashed Asiana flight 214 were named “Sum Ting Wong,” “Wi Tu Lo,” “Ho Lee Fuk,” and “Bang Ding Ow.”
The station later apologized and blamed the mistake on faulty information from the NTSB.
However, NTSB’s policy is to never give out pilot names in situations like the Asiana crash, contradicting KTVU’s claims.
“I don’t know who [KTVU] got that from, but we do not release names,” an official told Gawker.
