Fired KTVU Producer Typo Brings Asiana Debacle Full Circle

And you really can’t blame Sara Morrison, formerly with CJR and currently contributing as a media reporter to TheWrap, for running with it in headline form:

That’s right, boys and girls. Reached via email by Morrison, one of the three fired KTVU producers insisted that their professional pedigree remains “intack.” Reading TheWrap story, it becomes clear that the person in question, former KTVU investigative projects producer Roland De Wolk, cranked out a too-quick, non-spell-checked missive:

“My hard-earned reputation is intack. There are lawyers, so eager as I am to anser all questions, I must refrain.”

Still. Of all the times to calibrate two separate sentences with two separate typos… Morrison goes on to write: ‘TheWrap presumes the spelling errors were unintentional.’ Ouch.
