    On today’s Noon newscast on KTVU, the station claimed it had “just learned the names of the 4 pilots on board” Asiana flight 214 which crashed last Saturday. But the station was given bad information that made it all the way into the newscast. If you read the names it becomes immediately clear this is a joke, which went unnoticed by the newsroom, producers and the anchor.

    You’ll recall earlier this week, KTVU touted its coverage as being not only first, but “100% accurate.”

    “Being first on air and on every platform in all aspects of our coverage was a great accomplishment, but being 100% accurate, effectively using our great sources and social media without putting a single piece of erroneous information on our air, is what we are most proud of as a newsroom,” said News Director Lee Rosenthal at the time.

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Heard that clip on the radio late this afternoon. It was like the announcer lady was trying to be so serious and had no clue she was duped.
