ABC Affiliate Ran Phony Cover of Broadwell Book

ABC's Denver affiliate is coming under fire for accidentally running a phony cover of Paula Broadwell's biography of General David Petraeus. The cover read, All Up In My Snatch. The real book title is All In.

Here's a screen grab:

A call placed the affiliate's assignment desk confirmed the unfortunate "mistake."

"That's correct," said the women working the assignment desk, confirming that the wrong book cover had been aired. "It was a mistake."

Here's video, via americablog.com:

UPDATE: The news channel apologizes:

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." (View image here.)

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

"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," Harris said.
