On Saturday, July 6, Asiana Airlines had a plane crash in San Francisco. A news report was made with false names for the pilots involved.

A KTVU-TV news anchor read the falsified names on air the night of the crash and then apologized after a commercial break.

The names were not only bogus, but also racially offensive. Asiana feels that the report damaged the reputation of the company and intends to sue KTVU-TV.

The lawsuit is expected to be filed in U.S. courts.

The National Transportation Security Board also apologized for the phony names, saying that a summer intern approved the false names for public use.
