Actually many Korean names are difficult to pronounce. Not that I usually take the the side of MSM but I doubt any of you can do any better.

Indeed. “Kim”, “Pak”, “Im” are some serious tongue twisters.

NTSB is now only saying an intern “confirmed the names”. They also say they did not come up with the names – someone at the station did – and it is their policy NOT to release that kind of info at all. Their intern likely got the call from the some intern at the station assigned to do the “research” and just heard them and said “uh, ya sure, that’s them”.

Now to the real world:
1) Totally clueless anchorette – totally.
2) NOBODY in the station (other than whoever devised these names) that saw this report had ever seen the Robert DeNiro SNL anti-terrorism skit? Not one person in that station had a clue?
