I would love to say I am shocked by this video. I am not. I worked in TV news for a decade, back when being accurate mattered. Now, it’s about who has the story first.
KTVU thought they got the scoop on the names of the pilots of Asiana flight 214, which crashed last Saturday at San Francisco International Airport. They ran with it. Unfortunately, it was a hoax. (The NTSB says an intern was to blame for confirming the names) Trust me, anchors don’t always read copy before a live newscast. Here is proof. This makes Ron Burgundy look professional.
