Hoo boy. You really can’t make this crap up. Or then again, apparently you can — if you’re ABC News.

In the past two days, ABC News has aired footage supposedly showing the shocking attack of invading Turkish forces on Syrian Kurds.

On Sunday, ABC News anchor Tom Llamas aired the footage, claiming it showed a fierce Turkish attack on Kurd civilians.


“The situation rapidly spiraling out of control in northern Syria. One week since President Trump ordered U.S. forces out of that region, effectively abandoning America’s allies in the fight against [the Islamic State],” he said.

Llamas described the video saying it appeared to show “Turkey’s military bombing Kurd civilians in a Syrian border town. The Kurds, who fought alongside the U.S. against ISIS. Now, horrific reports of atrocities committed by Turkish-backed fighters on those very allies.”


On Good Morning America the next day, senior foreign correspondent Ian Pannell, who is in Syria, said “This video, obtained by ABC News, appears to show the fury of the Turkish attack on the border town of Tal Abyad.”

Tracer bullets, furious explosions in the dark of night…pretty dramatic stuff. And horrific too, if it were actually from Syria.


Except. It’s not.


According to the Washington Examiner, the footage, which appears to be from 2017, shows American gun enthusiasts putting on a terrific pyrotechnic show for their audience in Kentucky. In fact, the Machine Gun Shoot and Military Gun Show, which involves the very popular night shoot, is an annual event at the Kentucky gun range. People love the show. They love it so much, in fact, that they record it and post footage of it to social media.

And this one.



Notice any similarities to “shocking slaughter” on ABC? Hard not to.

The Washington Examiner contacted the gun range, whose spokesperson said the images ABC aired “look to be” from their Kentucky property. “As of right now, it seems to be our footage.”


After the Washington Examiner contacted ABC, the network pulled the video.

“We’ve taken down the 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 said. “ABC News regrets the error.”


Oh. Riiiiight.

Seriously? How does this happen? First of all, how does this random footage end up in the production room at a major news network anyway, and then not a single person questions it?

And people wonder why President Trump is so critical of “fake news.”
