Current reportage from SFGate is that NTSB is saying they confirmed these names (in the person of a summer intern, who shouldn't be confirming anything -- by policy, NTSB does not do this), but did not *supply* the names; I surmise they came from a similar intern at KTVU, who had called for confirmation, and supplied the video clip we're all laughing at.

UPDATE: NTSB has canned their intern, but KTVU has yet to say whom on their end was responsible, and may be sued by the airline for their trouble.
