ABC News broadcasts fake Syria bombing video that's actually from a Kentucky military show in 2017
Lex’s submission goes straight to a tweet that links to the video in question (Knob Creek Machine Gun Night Shoot)— click on the headline above, then enjoy the article with videos — both a side by side comparison and the full ABC news report. Then enjoy the below on the subject, courtesy of Herb McCoy, which adds editorializing:
I'm so happy the internet exists so this type of shit gets called out. Just imagine how many news stories were fake and nobody knew before we were able to speak back.
And listen to the reporter's tone. He's really trying to portray it as Trump committing an unthinkable act of evil that should outrage all of us.
ABC News apologized after the network aired a video that it claimed to be Turkey's military bombing Kurdish civilians in Syria. The video is reportedly from Knob Creek Gun Range in West Point, Kentucky, and according to Fox News, is identical to a video entitled “Knob Creek night shoot 2017.”
The clip aired during Sunday's “ABC World News Tonight,” hosted by Tom Llamas.
"CORRECTION: 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. ABC News regrets the error," ABC World News and Good Morning America tweeted on Monday.
