Channel 7 out in Denver finally owns up to it after nearly a day of Web fun with this. I had thought it was a joke that a TV station had put up a graphic of the cover of Pal Broadwell's book, All In, but doctored to say, All Up in My Snatch.
This video, via Americablog, proved it's all too true, which they've not admitted.
Station's news director explains: "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."
