ABC Denver reportedly misnames Petraeus book: “All up in my snatch” (not The Onion)

Oh my.

A reader just sent me something that I didn’t believe. Then he sent me a photo. Then he sent me a video. Then I found a comment on ABC Denver’s Web site from another viewer who saw the same thing. So now I’m printing it.

In a piece on the 5pm news about now-resigned CIA director David Petraeus and his affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell, ABC News’ Denver affiliate put a photo of the biography on the screen, but the book had an awfully odd name.

The name of the Petraeus biography is, in real life, “All In.”

Here’s the book that ABC Denver reportedly showed instead:



And here’s video the reader just took of their TV set, with the newscast saved on DVR:

31. No no no. It's University of Denver. Also known as DU.

 

Not the other way around.

And yes, I live near DU - about 3 miles from that place.

38. me too, in fact I graduated from there. Twice. Broadwell is almost as embarrassing as Condoleeza

to have as a fellow alumnus. (I shook Condi's hand at commencement. Cold and limp as wet toilet paper.)

Wow. I bet all the DU mucky mucks were all bragging about Broadwell and fawning over her at the meeting and before her alumni speech. Ha ha, now this.

I kinda hate DU. We have a bad history. (they mostly took my money and treated me like shit. )

I wonder if it was someone at the station or if they found a doctored clip on the internet and didn't realize it had been doctored.

45. I truly believe there is nothing you can think of that is so disgusting that someone isn't into it.

Try as hard as you want to picture the most depraved, disgusting thing you can possibly think of. Chances are, out of all the people in the world who have ever existed, someone else is likely to have thought of it and enjoyed it.

22. My guess

Is that someone at the station did this as a prank and then forgot about it and it got put up onscreen.

Happens a lot in the newspaper business when some youngster writes a headline or caption as a joke and then it just gets grabbed and put through the system.

Example:

28. Holy crap, this is for real.

A call placed the affiliate's assignment desk confirmed the unfortunate "mistake."

"That's correct," said the women working the assignment desk, confirming that the wrong book cover had been aired. "It was a mistake."
