It's all over the news that someone reportd the names as a joke and everyone ran with it. Someone was very creative.

To 10:49AM ~~ Yup, according to a local news anchor:

"BLAME AN INTERN...
After KTVU made what will go down as one of the biggest screw ups in local television history, they then apologized.
In the station's apology they said that an NTSB official in Washington confirmed the names.
NTSB Statement: The National Transportation Safety Board apologizes for inaccurate and offensive names that were mistakenly confirmed as those of the pilots of Asiana flight 214, which crashed at San Francisco International Airport on July 6.
Earlier today, in response to an inquiry from a media outlet, a summer intern acted outside the scope of his authority when he erroneously confirmed the names of the flight crew on the aircraft."

Now we're all going to be called racists.
