Is This the Most Unfortunate Book Title Mix Up In News History?

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:

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 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…

Obama Again Says He Wants to ‘Export More Jobs’

October 4, 2012 at 2:55 pm (2012 Election, Colorado, Denver, Economy, Export Jobs, Jobs, Kent, Ohio, President Obama)

Fox News is blaming the latest Obama gaffe on being rattled from last night’s debate performance.

A Rattled Obama After Debate: Let’s ‘Export More Jobs’

President Obama misspoke in a speech at Kent State Univeristy, saying “I want to see us export more jobs,” a line likely to become immediate fodder for his opponent, Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Quickly realizing he made the mistake, Obama corrected himself: “I want to see us export more jobs, export more products – excuse me.”

But this is actually the second time in a little over a week that the President said he wanted to ‘export jobs’.

In Kent, Ohio on the 27th, this happened:

At a rally at Kent State University in Ohio, President Obama accidentally came out in favor of outsourcing before quickly correcting himself. “I want to see us more jobs —export more products, excuse me,” Obama said. “I was channeling my opponent there for a moment.”

Being the second time he has said this, does this mean we’ve graduated from simple gaffe to Freudian slip?
