An ABC news affiliate made an embarrassing mistake Monday after it accidentally ran a doctored photo of the cover of Paula Broadwell's book "All In," a biography of General David Petraeus.

The graphically altered image of the book changed the title from "All In" to "All up in my sn****" (see photo).

According to Talking Points Memo, KMGH-TV News Director Jeff Harris said that he only received one e-mail about it after the fact and admitted that he didn't notice it when it aired.

According to Gawker the station left this apology:

"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."
