Have to say, newsreader is a professional, doubt I could keep my serious after reading the names(even tho it is a very tragic event), specially the last two, try saying those out loud. Tbh, what I find most puzzling is the fact they just accepted those names as *real*, reading the names should make one go for at the very least a doublecheck as they sound really phoney (and probably are...)

Someone at the NTSB won't be used as a source in the future, methinks.

These jokes are actually pretty old in the aviation community, I remember by father telling them to me.  They forgot "Wong Whei" as well.

 

Air Force pilots are known for their politically incorrect humour.

Somewhere, someone is laughing their ass off, their call in prank worked. 

 

"Hi, KTVU news, this is Dick Johnson with the NTSB, we have the pilot names for you..."


And yeah,  it's real.

I can't believe she just calmly read that. I'd hire her in a heartbeat to be a news anchor, because frankly, I don't think I could ever read that with a straight face.

For what it's worth, apparently the news station tried to fact check but was purposely given false information by an intern at the NTSB (who has since been fired).  How true this is, I don't know, but at least it's an explanation.
