ABC News Busted Creating “Fake News Propaganda” Surrounding Syrian Conflict…

Last night and again this morning ABC News aired shocking footage supposedly from the frontline battle between Syrian Kurds and the invading Turkish troops.  The report and footage was described in shock-filled breathless language, intended to provoke the audience.  ABC News anchor Tom Llamas aired the allegedly shocking footage, claiming it showed a fierce Turkish attack on Kurdish civilians.

However, there is a very big problem. The footage is 100% fake…. it never happened.

The footage ABC News used in their broadcast comes from a nighttime machine gun demonstration at the Knob Creek Gun Range in West Point, Kentucky.  The stunning propaganda effort was first caught by Twitter user PolishPatriotWATCH:

.

Again, this footage is 100% fake.  The Washington Examiner’s journalist Becket Adams called ABC and asked them what was going on.

“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 network representative told the Washington Examiner. “ABC News regrets the error.”  (read more)

Let’s be clear about this.  This is ABC international News using footage from a Kentucky gun exhibition and passing it off as attack footage in Syria.  That is not a mistake.

This production had to pass through several layers of ABC News editorial review prior to broadcast.  This is not a simple mistake of the wrong footage….  ABC News was caught purposefully creating “Fake News”.

ABC getting caught manufacturing Fake News should be an additional concern because ABC news is also promoting this:

“Hunter Biden sits down for an exclusive interview with ABC News”:

    I remember when I found out all network news is fake. Way back when Liberals hated GM, NBC News rigged a Chevy pick up to explode. They fabricated the crash test with the explosion to hype the dangerous truck narrative. NBC lied about it to everyone until GM finally told them their Private Investigators interviewed the Pyrotechnics expert NBC used, and he came in on them.

      Then further details came out that NBC had repeatedly failed to get a FM truck with a nearly full gas tank to explode.
      So they commissioned a little explosive help.

        In short, Peter is saying the last days began on the day of Pentecost when he delivered his sermon. He did not say it was the “end of the world.” The end of the world is at least 1,000 years away.

    Surely we can build a case for Treason, Sedition, Slander, psy-ops warfare. There is a clear intent to deceive, on multiple topics, multiple levels, with a clear purpose. To fool the american people, to remove a duly elected president, to interfere with the constitutionally elected purpose of the President of the United States. There must be justice, there must be a standard of truth, there must be accuracy. The purpose is clear and common, and apparent.

    The momentum is building. The people are becoming informed. The ultimate authority in this land is We the People. Soon we will be able to pass referendums, and grassroots initiated legislation, grassroots initiated prosecution and justice. Intelligent people want law, order, structure, justice, truth, fairness. They want Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

And then I would love to see him follow up on Friday with an address to the nation after the IG report drops. This corruption can not be swept under the rug.
