Via the folks at AmericaBlog: When Denver's ABC affiliate put together a piece on the ever-devolving Petraeus affair yesterday, the station needed an image of the cover of Paula Broadwell's Petraeus bio All In to show its viewers. So it naturally went to the internet, which was a big mistake.
The reporter thought he was just grabbing an image of the cover of Broadwell's book, but he actually grabbed one that had been doctored by some hilarious internet wag to read All Up In My Snatch (lol get it?). And then he put it on TV, next to an image of Broadwell.
The station's news director told us: "Yes it happened. It was a mistake."
Here's video of the segment.
It was a regrettable and an embarrassing error. We are mortified this appeared during our 5 p.m. news broadcast. The editor pulled the image of the book cover from the Internet without realizing it had been doctored. We sincerely regret the error and have corrected the story to avoid any recurrence of its broadcast. We are following up internally as well to avoid a repeat of this inexcusable oversight.
