Apparently, the ABC affiliate in Denver experienced some confusion over the title of the General David Petraeus biography, All In.
On a graphic used during discussion about CIA director David Petraeus and his affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell, the news station mistakenly used an image with the title All Up In My Snatch – The Education or General David Petraeus.
Via America Blog:
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 Denver station has since confirmed the image did indeed appear in their broadcast, but says a reporter mistakenly grabbed a photoshopped image from the internet.
… when the 7NEWS reporter went on the Internet to get an image of the book cover, the reporter mistakenly grabbed a Photoshopped image that said, “All Up In My Snatch.”
As such a photo is difficult to locate in a search, it would appear that somebody at the ABC affiliate was caught making an obscene joke about the affair, and it somehow made its way to broadcast.
The image can be seen below…
An unprecedented number of Catholic organizations have launched lawsuits at the Obama administration for his healthcare plan’s mandated contraception provision – return fire in the President’s War on Religion. You wouldn’t know that these legal actions are historic in nature, based on the media blackout regarding the matter.
As LifeNews reports, there are 60 million Catholics in the U.S. who will comprise a major faction of the swing vote this coming election. So their response to the mandated contraception provision is indeed newsworthy. This is how the media has chosen to cover it however:
– ABC World News – ZERO seconds of coverage. But, last night there was time for a full report on sleep apnea and Katie Couric discussing how she met Queen Elizabeth; how she wore a peach coat and “a lovely peach hat.”
– NBC Nightly News – ZERO seconds of coverage. But last night there was time to squeeze in a story on a new computer app that shows America’s eating habits, “graphic evidence” of how we eat badly late at night.
– CBS Evening News – a brief 19 seconds of coverage on the evening the lawsuit became public. ZERO coverage last night. But there was time in the broadcast for a Cincinnati Reds baseball fan lucky enough to catch two home runs in left field.
“The intentional, deafening silence continues,” stated Brent Bozell, MRC President, “and we are not the only ones concerned. This deliberate censorship must come to an end.”
Tim Graham of the Media Research Center appeared on Your World With Neil Cavuto yesterday and explained quite succinctly why the media has remained silent.
Well, the old story is they don’t need to have a conspiracy, just a consensus. This is a group of people who all want Obama to be reelected, and they’re going to simply say ‘Look, this whole Catholic lawsuit just seems like a Republican publicity stunt to us, and we’re not gonna touch it.’ And look, this is – these are people who represent 60 million American Catholics. That’s a substantial voting bloc. They deserve more respect than the complete diss these networks have given the American Catholic church.
Will the Old Media stop shielding the Obama administration? Ever?
