Asiana Airlines to sue TV station over fake pilot names
Posted Tuesday, July 16th 2013 @ 10am

Asiana Airlines will sue KTVU, the San Francisco TV station that reported bogus and racially-offensive names as the pilots on the plane that crashed earlier this month.

An anchor for KTVU read the names on the air Friday, then apologized after a break (videos below).

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) also apologized, saying a summer intern confirmed the names of the flight crew to the TV station.

Asiana claims the report seriously damaged the airline's reputation, and called the report "racially discriminatory."
