    Like Ron Burgundy from anchor man news readers are air heads and will read anything.
    ................................................................................................................................................................
    During the noon newscast Friday, co-anchor Tori Campbell, announced that “KTVU has just learned the names of the four pilots who were on board” Asiana flight 214 when it crashed at San Francisco International Airport on Saturday.
    She then read from a teleprompter while a TV graphic displayed four fake names that clearly were someone’s idea of a joke.
    The first name — “Captain Sum Ting Wong” — should have been a give-away that something really was wrong. But Campbell kept reading… “Wi Tu Lo, Ho Lee Fuk, Bang Ding Ow.”

    Would like to see someone mess with Zero like this on his teleprompter.

    It took me about 5 seconds to realize those names were a gag...flashbacks to Bart Simpson's prank calls to Mo's Tavern...

    I laughed my butt off. It is wrong on many levels but still funny as hell. I went to the news channels website an they have an apology up. They also state that someone at the ntsb confirmed the names. Now at least one person at ntsb has a sense of humor.

    I think it is scary, that lady is just reading and not engaging her brain one bit. She is a total robot. But it was funny.

    Mrs. Ron Burgundy apologized so all is good..

    Breaking news..................... the Asian community in San Francisco has retained lawyer Wi Soo Yu to pursue a class action suit against KTVU.
