Thread: Newsroom Gaffe

  1. #1

    Default Newsroom Gaffe

    I think I probably shouldn't be laughing at this but it's too late, I can't help myself. This is actually the channel that I watch when I watch local news in the morning, I'm surprised that I missed this. The newscaster got incorrect information regarding the names of the four pilots on the Asiana flight. She read them off as:

    Captain Sum Ting Wong
    Wi Tu Lo
    Ho Lee Fuk
    Bang Ding Ow

    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.
