UPDATE, 6:40PM: The National Transportation Safety Board has issued an apology for confirming the fake pilot names to KTVU, citing the handiwork of an overzealous summer intern. Read the full release here.

PREVIOUSLY: Local San Francisco Fox affiliate KTVU is blowing up on social media today after erroneously identifying the Asiana Airline pilots in Saturday’s SFO crash by four racist prank names during its Friday noon broadcast. “Prior to air, the names were confirmed by an NTSB official in the agency’s Washington, D.C. office,” read an apology posted this afternoon on KTVU’s website. “Despite that confirmation, KTVU realized the names that aired were not accurate and issued an apology later in the newscast.”
