The intern may not have a future at NTSB but has a heck of a future as a comedian

Only in the US (and maybe Israel) could anyone be politically correct enough not to laugh at this (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).
An Oakland TV station was apparently duped into giving racist, incorrect names for the pilots of the Boeing 777 that crash landed at a San Francisco airport on Saturday.
Anchor Tori Campbell of KTVU said on the air Friday that the Asiana jet crew, flying from Seoul, consisted of "Captain Sum Ting Wong," "Wi Tu Lo," "Ho Lee Fuk," and "Bang Ding Ow."
"The NTSB has confirmed these are the names of the pilots on board Flight 214 when it crashed," Campbell said during the noon report. "We are working to determine what roles each of them played during the landing on Saturday."
The station later apologized with Campbell saying on the air: "These names were not accurate despite an NTSB official confirming them this morning. We apologize for this error."
By comparison, here's a story about a family in Israel that has given their kids some very unusual names.
