The Daily Show & The Colbert Report Mock KTVU

The past two weeks, The Daily Show and The Colbert Report hosts and staff have been on vacation. Well, the shows were back on air this past Monday and wasted no time mocking KTVU’s ineptitude for inadvertently reporting the four racists Asian names.

Stephen Colbert also mocks Asiana Airlines’ lawsuit against KTVU, which I agree with – the suit is ridiculous, IMHO. The KTVU incident doesn’t damage Asiana Airlines’ reputation – a plane crash does (whether or not it was Asiana Airlines’ fault or not).

Lastly, Colbert rightfully asks why KTVU has yet to come clear as to how those racist names came to be at the station, and makes up a mock racist name for the KTVU news director, Munchma Quchi. In somewhat breaking news, the NTSB intern has been identified asĀ Alexander Fields-Lefkovic, a junior attending Cornell University.
