Even San Francisco Kids Are Getting a Kick Out of the KTVU Asiana Pilot Gaffe

Posted By on Thu, Jul 18, 2013 at 4:12 PM

KTVU hasn't gotten much of a break since it went on the air last week and reported fake names of the Asiana pilots that crashed into SFO on July 6.

Not even the kiddos are cutting the reporters over there some slack.

We spotted the latest jab at the station on the Bernalwood blog, which posted a kid-crafted press release about a missing helicopter in the neighborhood.

As the blog reports, a neighbor saw the sign this week about the missing helicopter, noting that the National Transportation Security Board is not doing a good job of investigating.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
