Ousted KTVU Producer Allegedly Had History of Questionable Reporting Before Asiana Gaffe

De Wolk had interviewed Micah Lee, a technologist at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, ostensibly for a story about a hacker-prank called "doxing" -- which is publishing info ("docs") about someone else on the Internet.

But when the interview aired, Lee says he was shocked to see the story itself had nothing to do with doxing; it was about a different prank called "swatting" which happens when someone calls 911 to report a hostage situation or terrorist threat at someone else's house, to get a SWAT team to bust down the door.
