Layers Of Editorial Scrutiny

Sometimes fail if you're in a hurry to get something published. D'wife was watching the TV news last night when a picture of P. Broadwell's book was put up. She was sure she was hallucinating or misreading as no one in their right mind would put such a title on a book, but:

7NEWS sincerely apologizes for a mistake that we aired in our broadcast Monday, a mistake that has gone viral on the internet. ... We are following up internally as well to avoid a repeat of this inexcusable oversight," Harris said.
