Video: ABC Affiliate Taken In by YouTube Parody, Airs Risque Version of Petraeus Book Cover in News Report

An ABC-affiliated TV station was apparently duped by a parody video that appeared on YouTube, and aired a clip during a news report that included an altered cover for biographer Paula Broadwell’s book about Gen. David Petraeus, The Huffington Post reports.

The clip, aired on “7 News” by KMGH-TV, ABC’s Denver affiliate, contains a brief view of what appears to be the book’s cover, which has been altered from its original title, “All In,” to read: “All Up In My Snatch.” The book appears during a report on the extramarital affair between Petraeus and Broadwell that resulted in Petraeus’ resignation as CIA director.

Here’s a brief video clip of the report, with the book cover appearing about halfway through the video:
