The TV anchor who unwittingly broadcast fake, racist names of the pilots flying the ill-fated Asiana Airlines Flight 214 issued an apology Saturday as debate over the incident continued. The segment on Friday at noon that referred to two of the pilots as "Captain Sum Ting Wong," and "Wi Tu Lo," has gone viral and drawn heavy criticism on the Internet. "Apologies to all upset by a story on Noon News. A serious mistake was made @KTVU," anchorwoman Tori Campbell wrote on Twitter.

A small town in Maine has been wrestling with a prostitution scandal involving an zumba fitness dance instructor--but it is the naming of the accused johns that has created a mess.   The first list of 21 names of men accused of being involved in the scandal reportedly includes names that match several notable men around town. All are charged with the class E crime of engaging a prostitute. The names were released this week after a series of court battles. Police in Kennebunk plan to release the remaining names, perhaps more than 150,  every other week as the people are issued summonses.

In the wake of Asiana 214's crash-landing in San Francisco, there are surely myriad lawsuits to come - three passengers died, scores of others were injured, numerous flights were canceled and an aircraft was left gutted. But the first suit to be announced a week after the crash, though, wasn't over any of the injured passengers or wrecked equipment; it was over Asiana Airlines's reputation, which the company says was damaged when a Bay Area television aired bogus names of its pilots with racist undertones last week.

Alicia Silverstone received the ultimate early Mother's Day gift: a baby boy! Like Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon before them, she and hubby Christopher Jarecki went the nontraditional route, naming their little guy Bear Blu. (Sounds like the perfect playmate for Roc and Roe, right?) The "Clueless" actress, 34, welcomed the 7 pound, 15 ounce bundle of joy Thursday at a Los Angeles-area birthing center. "We are all three in love," Silverstone wrote on her blog. "I'm so grateful to this community for all the love, support, good wishes and happy vibes you've sent me during my pregnancy ... it has been wonderful.

Was Boston Marathon bombing survivor Adrianne Haslet-Davis right to leave a taping of “Meet the Press” the other day because producers of the news show apparently reneged on a promise not to use the names of the two brothers accused of the carnage? Haslet-Davis is the professional ballroom dance instructor whose left foot was blown off exactly one year ago today by one of the bombs allegedly planted by the Tsarnaev brothers. She is rightfully receiving a lot of attention now, because it is the anniversary of the blast and because her recovery has been remarkable.
