KTVU trying to erase its racially offensive news report from Web

KTVU, the San Francisco area news station that erroneously reported fake, racially offensive names of the pilots who crash-landed Asiana flight 214 two weeks ago, is now attempting to remove the embarrassing footage from the Internet.

KTVU has invoked the Digital Millennium Copyright Act to remove the video, in which news anchor Tori Campbell reads identifies the "confirmed" pilots names as "Sum Ting Wong," "Wi Tu Lo," "Ho Lee Fuk," and "Bang Ding Ow," from YouTube.
