KMGH On Altered Book Cover, ‘It Was a Mistake’

KMGH has issued a statement on its website about airing an altered cover of Paula Broadwell‘s book, “All In, The Education of General David Petraeus”.

“It was a mistake,” Jeff Harris, news director for the Denver ABC affiliate said in a statement.  “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.”

During last night’s 5 p.m. news, instead of showing a cover of Broadwell’s biography about former CIA Director David Petraeus, “All In”, the station showed an altered version that read, “All Up In My Snatch”.  The story and photo have since gone viral.  You can see a frame grab of the book cover on air after the jump.

KMGH Airs Altered Cover of Petraeus Biography

Last night during its 5 pm. newscast, Denver ABC affiliate, KMGH, aired an altered cover of Paula Broadwell‘s biography about former CIA Director David Petraeus.

Broadwell’s book is titled, “All In”, but the cover that KMGH aired was titled, “All Up In My Snatch” (see picture above)  The cover was shown during a story KMGH reporter Doug Schepman was doing about comments Broadwell made last month at the University of Denver.

Both Broadwell and Petraeus have been mired in controversy after it was revealed the two had an affair.  Petraeus, a former four star general in the Army, has since stepped down from his position as CIA Director.
