The illicit affair between disgraced CIA director David Petraeus and writer Paula Broadwell is likely to have tragic implications for both their families. On one level, though, the revelation of their tryst has been a net positive for Broadwell. Sales of the biography of Petraeus she penned are suddenly booming.
And what, class, is the name of that biography? In a news segment on the scandal, the ABC Denver affiliate KMGH flashed a glimpse of the cover—or at least of what the editor thought was the cover.
AmericaBlog was first to notice that the image used in the segment was a Photoshopped sendup of the cover that had been downloaded from the Web. It read All Upin My Snatch. The actual title is All In. “Snatch” is a pejorative term for an intimate part of the female anatomy.
Since the story broke, the station has acknowledged the error of its ways. News Director Jeff Harris is quoted at the KMGH-TV website:
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.
