POLL: Smart or Not? KTVU Has Video of Fake Asiana Pilot Names Pulled from YouTube

KTVU is exerting its copyright claim on YouTube videos showing anchor Tori Campbell reading fake names identifying the pilots of Asiana flight 214.

>UPDATE: KTVU vice president and general manager Tom Raponi responded to TVSpy’s question about pulling the videos saying, “The accidental mistake we made was insensitive and offensive.  By now, most people have seen it.  At this point, continuing to show the video is also insensitive and offensive, especially to the many in our Asian community who were offended.  Consistent with our apology, we are carrying through on our responsibility to minimize the thoughtless repetition of the video by others.”

The YouTube videos embedded on media websites, including TVSpy, showing Campbell reading the names ”Captain Sum Ting Wong,” Wi Tu Lo,” “Ho Lee Fuk,” and “Bang Ding Ow,” have been replaced with the notice, “This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by KTVU.”

While some media bloggers think removing the videos may be the wrong move for the Cox owned San Francisco Bay Area FOX affiliate, we want to know what you think:
