The Perils Of Live TV

Bet you heard about the plane crash just outside San Francisco, from Asiana Flight 214...

Now watch this...

Wow. And she just read 'em as if everything was fine... someone's gonna lose their job over this, luckily for her, it won't be the anchor!

An intern at the NTSB will likely suffer the same fate, as this statement implies:
The National Transportation Safety Board apologizes for inaccurate and offensive names that were mistakenly confirmed as those of the pilots of Asiana flight 214, which crashed at San Francisco International Airport on July 6.
Earlier today, in response to an inquiry from a media outlet, a summer intern acted outside the scope of his authority when he erroneously confirmed the names of the flight crew on the aircraft.
The NTSB does not release or confirm the names of crewmembers or people involved in transportation accidents to the media. We work hard to ensure that only appropriate factual information regarding an investigation is released and deeply regret today's incident.
Appropriate actions will be taken to ensure that such a serious error is not repeated.
