To sue or not to sue. Looks like Asiana Arilines has changed its mind and will not sue Oakland station KTVU for broadcasting racist Asian joke names last Friday during a report about the Asiana plane that crashed July 6 in San Francisco.


Here is what Asiana said in a statement: “Asiana Airlines has decided not to proceed with the case since KTVU has issued a formal apology and in order for us to focus all our efforts on managing the aftermath of the accident.”
