    Errors in TV News Story
    #1
    Here is an example of how it's possible for crazy errors to make it right on to TV newscsts.

    Do you recall the recent Asiana passanger jet crash? Well some TV station reported the names of the pilots as:

    Sum Ting Wong
    Ho Lee Fuk
    Bang Ding Ow

    If you look at those names, it would seem pretty clear it's a racist joke. But I guess in the heat of the moment, in the rush to get news on the air, that didn't occur to the news station.
