Asiana Airlines Plans Suit Against KTVU Over Broadcast Of Offensive, False Names

Asiana Airlines says it will pursue a lawsuit against KTVU, the tv station that mistakenly aired offensive names it identified as the names of the four flight crew of the jet that crashed at San Francisco International Airport on July 7th. The crash killed three and injured dozens of passengers and crew. The airline says the broadcast defamed the airline. More here from the Los Angeles Times. The station admits it made a horrendous error; it confirmed the names with an NTSB intern, who has since been fired by the agency.
