I remember watching this footage last night on ABC and thought that I had seen it before somewhere. Well, it turns out my suspicions were right. ABC apparently used footage from the Knob Creek night shoot from 2017, which takes place in West Point, Kentucky....NOT SYRIA! Just another reason not to trust anything you see or hear on MSM!

ABC News Uses 2017 Gun Range Video and Lies to Pass It Off as Turkey Bombing the Kurds in Syria

Sunday's ABC story showing FAKE combat footage from Syria:

^You can't post the YouTube link, because ABC News has made this particular video clip, showing this combat footage, PRIVATE. Their other videos on their YouTube channel ARE NOT private. Why this one? That's OK, because the ABC clip was captured on the Twitter post shown below.

Ha...I saw this earlier on Twitter too. Talk about egg in ABC's face.

This is the epitome of fake news.

Did they at least warn the (diminishing) viewer audience the obligatory, ahem...

"Some of what you are about to see is graphic, and may be disturbing to some viewers."

Don't you know if ABC makes private or deletes the video, it's like the Video never existed.


Orwell would be proudly disgusted by this.

The media has lost control of their narrative and they don't even know how to react to the new playing field.

None of the liberal media will be able to spin or fake what's coming this week. PAIN for their establishments, and the officials they have successfully bribed in the U.S. government.

this made me chuckle.
good find.
funny, the newspaper reporters are supposed to be the watch dogs looking at politicians and corporations and reporting their antics. only to find we now also need someone to watch the media reports too.

i guess ATS and other sites like it, are the new watchdog.

There's a reason that Journalism is a LIBERAL Arts Degree.

It's all pablum for the uninformed masses. Used to sway public opinion, "By Any Means Necessary". Hmmmm....that phrase sounds eerily familiar.

Now which group has said that repeatedly?

Funny that...

Now, ABC concedes it was just a "big mistake." Yeah right!


ABC aired supposedly shocking footage Monday morning purporting to be from the frontline battle between the Syrian Kurds and the invading Turks. The only problem is the footage appears to come from a nighttime demonstration at the Knob Creek Gun Range in West Point, Kentucky.

A spokesperson for ABC conceded it made a big mistake.

"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," a spokesman told the Washington Examiner."ABC News regrets the error.”

Your right...
Orwell, Wells, Asimov, Bloch, Clarke etc.. they all would be disgusted by this.

Science fiction writers have been warning us about the fake MSM propaganda machine for a long time. Just wait till they get their hands on a three-dimensional holographic laser projector!

Because most journalists don't know what they are talking about when it comes to weapons and military footage.

Think about it? Someone on the internet uploads such footage in poor resolution cropped/edited and with a misleading title. Journalist is alerted to it or stumbles upon it and due to ignorance takes it as face value.

Newsreader states


This video obtained by ABC News appears to show the fury of the attack on the border town of Tal Abyad.




See the footage from an example video claiming to be filmed at Tel (Tal) Abyad.

See from 0:41 where you can see the range footage edited in.

Simply the case of a journalist or news team stumbling across such footage and not doing more in depth research to verify it.



The misuse of the range footage appears to have come from this news website.
