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."

quote:
"CORRECTION: 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," the network tweeted. "ABC News regrets the error."


"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.

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

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.

I see it all the time now at concerts. Why bother even going? Roll Eyes

Wow - lots of ricochets going off into the sky.

So, a lot of innocent Kurds must be hit when those bullets come down god knows where.
