    I saw that earlier. I couldn't stop roaring.

    Problem is the TV station DID attempt to confirm the names with the NTSB.... and they verified them, so on the air they went. Now, WHO at that station can't use some common sense and realize that those 'names' aren't 'real'?!? So many People can't think for themselves or utilize any critical thinking skills to figure out their getting trolled.

    Having said that, it was the funniest thing I've seen in the news in a LONG time. They deserve to get bashed for it too.

    Very, very funny! I wonder if the person who "confirmed" the names at NTSB had a good laugh after he hung up the phone.

    AND, I want to know how that newscaster could keep a straight face after she started reading the names? I can now believe the "media" are nothing more than trained monkeys reading from a teleprompter.

    This tops the last media flub where the reporter said happy birthday on air to a viewer named "Hugh Janus" then got the joke and couldn't stop laughing...

    I love how she reads them and never notices that something is wrong. Just shows that the media just reads what is put in front of them.
