ABC Admits To Using Fake Footage Of Kurdish ‘Slaughter’
Tyler Durden, Zero Hedge, Oct 15 2019

ABC News was just busted using two year old gun range footage while reporting on Turkey ‘slaughtering’ the kurds in the wake of a Pindo withdrawal from the region. ABC News has admitted to using the fake footage and has removed it. While not apologizing, they ‘regret the error.’

The report said:

This video right here appearing to show Turkey’s military bombing Kurd civilians in a Syrian border town. The Kurds, who fought alongside Pindostan against Daesh, now horrific reports of atrocities committed by Turkish-backed fighters on those very allies.

For comparison, here’s the ABC News report. It’s a different embed, as ABC News pulled the original.

And here’s the footage they used from the Knob Creek gun range in West Point, Kentucky, in 2017.

Whoops!

Just a simple editing room oversight, we’re sure.
