The actual title of Paula Broadwell's biography of General David Petraeus is All In, not All Up In My Snatch.

A call placed the affiliate's assignment desk confirmed the unfortunate "mistake."

"That's correct," said the women working the assignment desk, confirming that the wrong book cover had been aired. "It was a mistake."

Apparently an embarrassing series of typos was missed by the proofreaders.
