Today, San Francisco's KTVU reported that these were the names of the pilots of Asiana Flight 214 that crashed on Sunday. Station VP Tom Raponi says they "sincerely regret the error" and that "prior to air, the names were confirmed by an NTSB official." Below, watch video of the reporter reading those names.

UPDATE: The NTSB has issued a press release stating that "a summer intern acted outside the scope of his authority when he erroneously confirmed the names of the flight crew on the aircraft."
UPDATE #2: An NTSB spokesperson told SFGate that 'the names 'originated at the media outlet' and that the intern — unaware of the offensive names — was 'acting in good faith and trying to be helpful." (Thanks, Todd Lappin!)
