    FAKE NEWS: ABC Apologizes For Using Footage From Kentucky Gun Range Fireworks As Actual Footage Of War On Kurds

    ABC Apologizes for Showing Video From U.S. Gun Range in Report on Syria




    ABC News apologized Monday for mistakenly running a video that apparently was taken at a gun range in Kentucky with a report about Turkish attacks in northern Syria. “We’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,” the network said in a statement on Monday. “ABC News regrets the error.” A representative for ABC News declined to comment on how the mix-up had happened.The clip that accompanied the reports on the bombings showed explosions and smoke dominating the dark horizon. Tom Llamas, an anchor with ABC News’s “World News Tonight” spoke over the footage, which someone reposted on YouTube. “This video, right here, appearing to show Turkey’s military bombing Kurd civilians in a Syrian border town,” Mr. Llamas said. A number of people on social media noted on Monday that the clip strongly resembled a video uploaded to YouTube in April 2017. The title “Knob Creek night shoot 2017” referred to an evening machine gun event held by the Knob Creek Gun Range in Kentucky.

    An employee who answered the phone at the gun range on Monday but would not give his name, said that he was not sure who had shot the video. But he said he recognized it as having been taken at the facility. News organizations have various systems for vetting footage to verify authenticity. ABC has a really good team that does this work,” “But I assume that on a Sunday, when they were probably stretched for staff, they failed to do the necessary verification checks, and under the pressure that comes with breaking news, this got through.” A number of right-leaning social media accounts and news outlets, like The Washington Examiner, wrote that the incorrectly sourced clip raised broader questions about the trustworthiness of coverage.

    They have made lying commonplace and apologize using 'respectable language'. Just admit it - the media deliberately put out lying propaganda for the gullible masses.
