Denver’s Channel 7 “mortified” over Petraeus story goof

Source: Denver Post

Monday during the 5 p.m. newscast, Denver ABC affiliate KMGH-Channel 7 committed what news director Jeff Harris called “an embarrassing mistake” and one that’s too risque to repeat in a family newspaper.

The station showed a digitally redesigned graphic of the cover of the Petraeus biography, “All In.” The title was, um, rewritten.

An editor grabbed the wrong image online, Harris said. The fake image was not created locally. The reaction from viewers was minimal (“my wife called me”), but took off in the blogosphere. Harris declined to discuss whether disciplinary actions had been or might be taken, except to say, “when we make mistakes we take them seriously.”

I laughed SO loudly when I saw this!!! OMG! Glad you're here! Share the mirth! Lots of fun going on these days, especially on the heels of a successful election! But let's not get complacent, or forget that we have to build upon our winnings, and make sure we do even BETTER in 2014 and 2016!

5. Not buying they "took off in the blogosphere" excuse

John Aravosis from Americablog ran this story last night and said he searched and searched for the photo shopped book cover and all that he found was the original book cover. I'm sure now it can be easily found.

Yea I has been a whirlwind, to be sure. As an Iowan, I voted for Obama and am proud to have him as our President. This scandal with Petraeus is a sad thing for sure; however, the conspiracy of crap that they just showed being aired on Fox News is despicable. Let's destroy hate!!!!! Thanks for the response-- it's a pleasure to be here.

The film looks to be shot on a cell phone which might indicate that someone was waiting for this to occur before the "accident" happened.

Cheers!

45. There are these things called video recorders; different types of them. Might not have had a way to

upload the recorded footage to YouTube directly from the device, so used their cellphone to record the recording and upload that instead.

47. *facepalm* Unfamiliar with VCRs/DVRs are we? You record some footage on TV, say the news, then

upload the footage to the Internet. VCRs generally can't connect to the Internet, and not everyone has home DSL/cable/satellite Internet connections. Their cellphones might be their only online connection. If that's the case, they could simply replay the recorded footage, record it on their cellphone, then upload that recording.

Which is what I said in the post you just responded to. Stop being daft and tinfoil-y.

48. Point is that this person had to know the content to have their phone ready

The only way your scenario works is if the person was previously informed. Usually news broadcasts do not play more than once, so thus i am sure you can calculate the issue involved.

Or do you think this person always records the local news?

Doubtful..

49. *double facepalm* You are aware people record programming when they cant watch it right that moment?

And then watch that recorded footage when they have the time to do so? And then can replay that footage they recorded to watch later if they see something they want to see again? And don't need the broadcaster to rebroadcast the original footage since the person recorded it at home for later viewing in the first place? You don't do this, therefore no one does this? My mom has done this Every. Single. Day. for years.

Again with your "I don't do that, therefore no one does that." argument. This is passing "farcical" and entering into "sad" territory.

There are those who record the local news and those who would never do such a thing.

This is a case of the latter.

53. You realize most DVRs have a 30 minute buffer?

 

So anyone watching the news who saw it just needs to rewind. And if you press "record" it captures the buffer.

You hit pause... most cable/satellite providers use DVRs now... then you get your phone camera all set, rewind the show a minute or so, hit play and start recording on your phone.

If you catch something, even if it goes by pretty quick, you can pause, grab your phone, turn the camera on, rewind a few seconds, hit play and capture it on a camera or phone.

I am sure we will find there is so very little to this story in the long run, the F.B. I. and the media have made it a circus. The photo is a form of bullying and it is really sad as there are children to think of.
