Fact Checking Is Important, People!
REAL fact checking, not just paying it lip service.
This is KTVU is San Francisco covering the Asiana plane crash. It has since been reported that a summer intern at the NTSB "confirmed" these names, but a) who's taking confirmation from an intern; and b) how do you not hear these names and not realize it's a prank? I used to feel a bit bad for news organizations when stuff like this slipped through, or especially the Howard Stern listeners prank calling (I actually caught one live the night Princess Diana died), but they're more worried about being first than being correct, so they get what they deserve.
