Asiana says it will sue a San Francisco TV station for damaging its reputation with a false, racially insensitive report released after its July 6 plane crash.
A prank believed to be the product of a National Transportation Safety Board intern led to an offensively wrong list of pilot names being read on the air.
An anchor for KTVU-TV read the names on the air Friday in a report about the San Francisco plane crash, then quickly apologized after a break.
Worse yet, the report was accompanied by a graphic with the names alongside a photo of the burned-out plane that crashed and claimed three lives.
Video of the report spread quickly went viral after the broadcast.
