Asiana Airlines to Sue San Francisco TV Station



Text  



Last week, KTVU in San Francisco was pranked by an intern at the FAA resulting in the station broadcasting fake names of the pilots involved in the crash of the 777. Somehow the news anchor didn’t realize that “Sum Tin Wong” was a fake name — the others were worse — and the station has since apologized.

But that’s not the end of it. The AP reports:

Asiana announced Monday that it will sue a San Francisco TV station that it said damaged the airline’s reputation by using bogus and racially offensive names for four pilots on a plane that crashed earlier this month in San Francisco.

I think Asiana should be slighlty more concerned with the damage to its reputation from the crash, not some moron on TV.
