Fake footage of Syrians burning Russian flags on CBC? (Canada)

I was watching CBC news live (channel 26 in Vancouver), about 20 minutes ago when something caught my eye.
They were talking about the crisis in Syria, showing pictures of Obama speaking with the Iraqi president.
Then they started showing pictures of the tanks and Syrians in the usual horrible video quality.

what caught my attention; just near the very end of the news story, for about 15 seconds they threw in some random footage of people burning Russian flags, with different video quality, as if to give the impression that Syrians were burning Russian flags in disgust with them.

Now my question is, who lately, could be possibly burning Russian flags?
my immediate thought is since a lot of Russians have been protesting about Putin's so called rigged elections, could that perhaps be the true culprit?

and why would CBC try to portray Syrians burning Russian flags? unless that actually happened?
I can't see that since they are allies, or am I missing something?

so it's literally just another small step in getting Canadians to despise Russia?
or to relate Russia in this some way?

it was odd. I actually blurted out "NOT POSSIBLE" when I saw it and turned off the TV.

I hope this doesn't seem too far off topic, but it could be the newcasters are just retarded or they are trying to brainwash us.

I was watching CTV news once during the beginning of the OWS saga. It was the day after that lady overdosed at the Vancouver camp. One of the protesters was holding a sign that said "End oil addiction" so the commentator said "As you can see the crowd is protesting drug addiction".

Either that commentator from that day was completely retarded or they were purposely spreading propaganda. It could be either or but it definitely had to be one of the two. If I were a betting man I would put my money on propaganda.

Canadian news is horrible. I have noticed a total decline in honestly when it comes to our Journalism since the Conservatives had power. I think their control over the media has a part in all the lies we are seeing on our news channels lately.

I will keep my eye out for what you saw today.

perfectly on topic, shows that they are either less credible due to negligance, or are playing the ignorance card while pushing an agenda. and more then media enterprise is in on it. can you say conspiracy? lol.

who could actually push an agenda using the media though?
like when I think of the types of people you would need to spin a story like that, makes my head spin too..
military psychologists and conservative political strategists??

you would think some reporters would catch onto this and report it?
or is journalistic integrity a thing of the past?

maybe only a paycheck determines the amount of truth they're willing to divulge.
sometimes I hope they're just retarded but it's hard when we see the types of stories it's happening on, and the reasons behind why they would try to keep US mental midgets.

Hopefully someone comes across the footage to add to the long list.

It's probably just lazy reporting - showing a crowd and using some archive footage.

However, some of these Middle Eastern countries will burn anything. The crowds burn what they are told to burn, whether it is the Stars and Stripes, the Union Jack, the Dannebrog, the Tricolore, Barbie Dolls, the Satanic Verses or Prince Saud's goatie.

If they are not burning something for the camera then they would have nothing else to do. It's a good day out for them and keeps them from complaining about their crappy leaders and repressive societies.

I missed it, but I congratulate you on spotting this. I too have wondered about their stock footage and the questionable placement of it. Good observation.

MSM have broadcasted several footages since earlier this year showing protesters burning the russian and the chinese flag too.
The protesters allegedly burn the Russia's flag because Russia supports and arms Bashar al-Assad.
