Paula Broadwell Petraeus Biography: TV Station Apologizes For Photoshopped Book Cover [Video]

Broadwell book mistake

A Denver television station has egg on its face because it ran with an obviously doctored cover image of Paula Broadwell’s biography of General David Petraeus, the former CIA director, with whom she was having an extramarital affair.

The actual name of the book is All In: The Education of General David Petraeus but what viewers of ABC Channel 7 in Denver, an ABC affiliate, saw on their screens was something quite different (see image above).

The station issued an apology for the error which said in part …

“7NEWS sincerely apologizes for a mistake that we aired in our broadcast Monday, a mistake that has gone viral on the internet …

“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.”

According to the statement, an editor at the station pulled the image from from an internet search without somehow realizing that it was a photoshopped prank and not the real title and cover of Broadwell’s Petraeus biography.

Here is a video clip of the original Channel 7 news broadcast with the incorrect book cover graphic of Paula Broadwell’s biography of David Petraeus:

Do you find the television’s station explanation plausible or do you think it might have been an inside job?

    Bullshit. Out of the 100s of images of the book online they grabbed the one that was so inconspicuously edited? This person should lose their job. It's totally crass and unimaginable that News networks can just chalk up these kinds of blatant tabloid worthy garbage to "a mistake." It's 2012. People aren't blatantly ignorant anymore in regards to "apologies".

    Yeah, REHIRE the ADULTERY, SHAMEFUL AND WASTEFUL SPENDING gentleman Patreause and FORGET HIS INNOCENT LOYAL WIFE OF 40 YEARS! Continue to WASTE 40% of taxpayer money on the two largest US Depts Defence and Veteran Affairs which is more than the next 5 largest military spending nations including Russia, China, UK, France and Germany TILL THE AMERICAN ECONOMY, INFRSTRATURE, SOCIAL SECURITY AND MEDICARE/MEDICAID GOES BROKE! WHO CARES, let America decline faster and other countries take over their lead in ECONOMY, EDUCATION AND WELFARE OF THEIR PEOPLE!

    The TOP 2% OF AMERICANS ALREADY OWN 80% OF WEALTH while the BOTTOM 80% OF AMERICANS WORKING CLASS OWN JUST 2% OF WEALTH because of concentration of taxes in DEFENCE, WALL STREET AND OIL INDUSTRY! Like Bush- Cheney 8 years of administration changed the middle-class into working class poor, FINISH THE JOB BY MAKING ALL 98% OF AAMERICANS into SLAVES MAKING MINIMUM WAGES OR CONVICTS IN THE LARGEST BUSINESS, CORRECTIONAL INDUSTRY if they do not want to join the mercenary forces of AMERICAN GIs coming back like boy scouts crying for disability payments!
