EVERYONE STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING. I HAVE IMPORTANT NEWS.
While doing a story on the increasingly bizarre love pentagon involving David Petraeus, Paula Broadwell, and basically everyone else in the military or CIA, ABC’s Denver affiliate ran what appears to be a Photoshopped image of the cover of Broadwell’s Petraeus biography, All In. Unless, of course, the book’s publishers gave it the alternate title of All Up In My Snatch in foreign markets or something, which we probably can’t rule out at this point. Either way, this is basically the funniest possible thing that will ever happen. Hi, I am 12.
After the image hit the Internet, the station released this statement apologizing for the error.
“It was a mistake,” said KMGH-TV News Director Jeff Harris.
“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,” Harris said. [ABC7]
I have posted the video of the report below. If any of you need me for the next couple hours, you are sh-t out of luck, because I laughed myself to death so therefore I am dead now.
