Local TV Station Airs Raunchy Fake David Petraeus Book Cover

Last week CIA Director David Petraeus resigned over his extramarital affair with biographer Paula Broadwell, whose book about the four-star general had the unfortunate (considering the circumstances) title “All In.” Some Internet smart-ass Photoshopped it to read “All Up In My Snatch.” Nobody could possibly mistake the parody cover for the real thing…

Until, that is, a staffer at Denver’s ABC News affiliate was either asleep or drunk at the wheel, and juxtaposed the ludicrous “Snatch” image with real-life video of Broadwell. The station later apologized and explained:

“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.”

No word on whether Petraeus was also “All Up In” coauthor Vernon Loeb’s snatch. As for “recurrence” of the broadcast, you can watch the video below.
