Slaughter in Syria!!!
Or maybe not?
ABC News took the footage from a nighttime machine gun demonstration at the Knob Creek Gun Range in West Point, Kentucky, and presented it as the frontline battle between Syrian Kurds and the invading Turkish troops.
Starting at 0.47 Knob Creek gun range footage starts.
This video, obtained by ABC News, appears to show the fury of the Turkish attack on the border town of Tal Abyad.
Senior foreign correspondent Ian Pannell, who is in Syria, said Monday on Good Morning America.
Appears to show the fury…
It never appeared to be a Turkish attack. People at ABC News wanted it to be a Turkish attack, and they had made a decision to call it a Turkish attack. Unfortunately for ABC’s “news team”, we are not stupid and we pay attention.
This kind of “reporting” could have serious consequences, including but not limited to, causing a drop in the stock market. Of course, all those geniuses in ABC and other “news” outlets don’t care about consequences as long as they can make Trump administration look bad.
They (ABC News) regret the error.
Of course, they do. ABC News looks like a bunch of idiots not worthy of being called news organization.
It’s puzzling to me why we keep tolerating this kind of behavior coming from the news outlets. It seems that mainstream media will jump on every chance to create a crisis, and then use it to scare people into believing that the world as we know it is about to end.
Certain four-letter words can’t be said on network TV because that could offend someone. Certain situations can’t be depicted on network TV because that could hurt someone’s feelings. FCC makes sure that nothing offensive gets on the air. But, if it comes to news, there’s absolutely no oversight.
How about a “news” designed to create a fake crisis? News design to scare people to death and push them into making decisions that otherwise they would not make? Like selling a beautiful ocean-front summer house with significant loss because they ware made to believe that in a couple of months, the house will end up underwater. Or voting for some guy they usually would not vote for.
I think that allowing a lie to be published as a fact, is much more harmful than someone accidentally dropping the F-Bomb when talking about the weather.
So, FCC, where are you?
The last thought.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I have no problem whatsoever with hard-working journalists who make every effort to keep us informed. Good or bad, sad or funny, if something happened I want to know about it. But I have enough political hacks masquerading as journalists creating crises every time someone passes gas in a public setting.
So, FCC, where are you?
