ABC Denver Runs Photoshopped Cover for Paula Broadwell's Book

This is one of those on-air goofs you figure when you hear about them someone was pulling your leg but this happened. Now, I'm already sick of this story of Petraeus's dalliances as anyone but as a comeuppance for the media obsession this is pretty damn funny.

From their website apology:

A mistake that aired on Denver's 7 has gone viral on the internet.

On 7NEWS at 5 p.m. on Monday, the station reported on ex-CIA director David Petraeus' relationship with his biographer, Paula Broadwell.

Broadwell earned a master's degree at the University of Denver and had given a speech at an alumni event several weeks ago that may have provided insight into the early stages of their relationship.

During the broadcast, 7NEWS showed an image of Broadwell's biography of Petraeus that is called, "All In: The Education of General David Petraeus."

However, when the 7NEWS reporter went on the Internet to get an image of the book cover, the reporter mistakenly grabbed a Photoshopped image that said, "All Up In My Snatch."

"It was a mistake," said KMGH-TV News Director Jeff Harris.
