No matter how fierce the battle, you got's to rock some selfies...
By Nick Givas | Fox News
ABC issued a correction and apology Monday for reportedly using video from a Kentucky gun range while falsely claiming it depicted a fierce battle between Syrian Kurds and Turkish forces.
The network aired the footage on Sunday night and Monday morning, framing it as battlefield video, when, in fact, it appears to be from a night gun demonstration at the Knob Creek Gun Range in West Point, Kentucky.
The footage first aired on Sunday's "World News Tonight" as anchor Tom Llamas claimed it showed a Turkish attack on a group of Kurdish civilians in a Syrian border town.
The chyron beneath the video read: "CRISIS IN SYRIA. ISIS prisoners escape as death toll rises in attack."
"Good Morning America" also tweeted out a correction on Monday that was identical to the one released by "World News Tonight."
The video appears identical to online footage called "Knob Creek night shoot 2017." At one point in the broadcast, the clip was described as being "obtained by ABC News."
The clip showed people firing tracer rounds as massive explosions occurred in the distance, while bystanders used cell phones to record.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." -- C.S. Lewis
That's like one of those lawyer shows where the attorney withdraws the question and the judge says disregard it. It's never disregarded. They played a little cya and are in no way sorry. Typical MSM

The only thing you clowns regret is getting caught here.
Journalists? Yeah, ok. Funniest joke I ever heard.

On a side note, when watching the real footage, it's sad to see people so caught up in this "let me record it!" smartphone culture that they are all holding up their phones and more focused in capturing it on a 5 inch screen than they are in being in the moment and seeing that awesome destruction for what it is.

"The Nazis entered this war under the rather childish delusion that they were going to bomb everyone else, and nobody was going to bomb them. At Rotterdam, London, Warsaw and half a hundred other places, they put their rather naive theory into operation. They sowed the wind, and now they are going to reap the whirlwind."
