An ABC News affiliate in Denver says that while attempting to report on the resignation of former CIA Director David Petraeus, the station mistakenly aired a photoshopped version of his mistress’ book with the raunchy title “All Up In My Snatch.”
KMGH-TV producer Deb Stanley told Raw Story that the wrong book cover had been “mistakenly picked up off the Internet” and aired during their 5 p.m. broadcast on Monday. Instead of displaying the actual book cover of Paula Broadwell’s Petraeus biography, “All In,” KMGH-TV aired the parody cover, “All Up In My Snatch.”
Oooh, now that is an unfortunate mistake to broadcast into people's homes.
That reminds of me of the problems that I have run into as a blogger assuming that an image or link is what it claims to be, and then later having to go back and fix or remove it. Of course MY excuse is that I work alone, along with my real job, and often do not have a lot of time to spare for research.
Having said that the photoshop is so obvious that you would have thought that SOMEBODY working at the news station would have picked up on it before broadcast. But nope.
I can tell you that it certainly did not escape the notice of some of the viewers, such as this gentleman.
“Not sure at all where you got your picture of Broadwell’s book for your 5pm news cast,” one viewer wrote. “I AM sure the title is NOT ‘ALL up IN my snatch’ ‘the education of General David Patraeus’ as you showed. I believe it is simply titled “All In”. Clever photoshopping by someone – - not so clever use of sources for a news cast!”
You just know that somewhere out there is a guy with a photoshop program who is simply doubled over with laughter right now, and who has probably spent much the day emailing his friends about his sudden notoriety.
