ABC caught pretending gun range video was Syria bombing the Kurds

October 14, 2019

  It has been interesting to watch the anti-war Democrats of the Obama era morph into war-mongers since Donald Trump became the President in 2016. The latest example of this came in the wake of the President’s announcement he was pulling a few dozen troops out of Syria. 

  In an effort to show how wrong Donald Trump was in pulling out of Syria, ABC ran a piece about how Syria was attacking the Kurds because the United States had abandoned them. The story was completed by a video in the background showing the devastating bombing. Or at least that was what ABC wanted its viewers to believe because it turns out that video was not from Syria at all, in fact the video turned out to be two years old and it was taken at a gun range in Kentucky. ABC has removed the video and apologized, here is more:

ABC News on Monday removed a video which the network presented as Turkish military forces attacking Kurdish fighters in northern Syria — amid reports that the footage may, in fact, be from a U.S. gun demonstration.

The footage, which ABC News purported was of an attack on the border town of Tal Abyad, was aired Sunday on World NewsTonight and Good Morning America on Monday morning. However, a comparison by Gizmodo shows the video was captured at Knob Creek Gun Range in West Point, Kentucky back in 2017.

“[I]t’s clear that the videos are the same,” said the website.

[W]e’ve taken down video that aired on World News Tonight Sunday and Good Morning America this morning that appeared to be from the Syrian border immediately after questions were raised about its accuracy. ABC News regrets the error,” a press representative for the network said.

  First of all, this was not an “error” and in the second place it did not “appear to be from Syria.” The truth is that this was done on purpose and the network wanted it to appear as if this was from Syria. This video is two years old and ABC had it hanging around their studios, they had to have known it was not new video and it was not being fed from Syria but they used it anyway because they had propaganda to present to the American people.

  This shows you how low the left will go to promote its agenda, they have no scruples and this is a prime example of why so many people no longer trust the mainstream media.
