Asiana to sue KTVU-TV over racist prank

Asiana Airlines says it is going to sue KTVU for broadcasting inaccurate and offensive names of the pilots of flight 214.

The National Transportation Safety Board says a summer intern confirmed the bogus names by a mistake. Asiana was going to sue the NTSB, but has now dropped the agency from the defamation lawsuit. 

The names were read during KTVU's noon broadcast Friday.
