Who Says “Anchorman” Isn’t Real? San Francisco TV Anchor Reads Fake Asiana Pilot Names On Air [VIDEO]
Television news is serious business. Really. In part, that’s because it takes a huge team effort to do anything. A successful TV newscast has many moving parts that must work together, like San Francisco’s KTVU noon news with this piece on the Asiana Airlines crash that will make your jaw drop. From the chyron guy who creates the obviously fake and highly objectionable graphic, to the producer who calls to put the graphic on air, to the anchor who mindlessly reads it word-for-word, this took teamwork!
Who cares if a summer intern with the NTSB gave those names? There must have been at least four people to see this before it got on the air! If you ever watched “Anchorman” and wondered if Ron Burgundy teleprompter pranks really happen on live television, wonder no more.
You stay classy, San Francisco!
