President Donald Trump is pushing back against the spin from the fake news over his recent decision to remove troops from Northern Syria.

Trump was confronted by an ABC News reporter during a press conference on Wednesday, and refused to accept the spin that he was somehow responsible for violence that has occurred recently in Syria.
“Even after all you have seen – ISIS prisoners freed, all the humanitarian disaster – you don’t have any regret for giving Erdogan the green light to invade?” ABC reporter Johnathan Carl asked the President.
“I didn’t give him a green light,” Trump interjected.
“You know, when you make a statement like that, it’s so deceptive. It’s just the opposite of a green light. First of all, we have virtually no soldiers there. They were mostly gone, just a tiny little group, and they would have been in harm’s way. You have a massive army on the other side of the border,” he added.
From there, Trump blasted the ABC News reporter for the network’s recent fraudulent reporting about the conflict in which they distorted a video from a gun range to create the impression of a nonexistent bombing campaign in Syria.
“When you ask a question like that, it’s very deceptive… It’s almost as deceptive as you showing all of the bombings taking place in Syria that turned out that the bombing that you showed on television took place in Kentucky,” Trump said.
President Trump released a video on his Twitter feed highlighting the deception from ABC News on Wednesday as well:

They were forced to release a half-hearted apology about the situation after being exposed on social media:
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. ABC News regrets the error.

However, as Carpe Donktum has pointed out, this was not mere incompetence by the fake news. ABC actively edited the video to make it passable as war footage, thinking that their viewers wouldn’t be intelligent enough to make the connection.
Yesterday @ABC said that the following was a "mistake"
– Using footage from a Kentucky Gun Range
– Digitally stabilizing the video
– Applying an exposure filter to make it darker
– Cropping out the American spectators
– Applying a Grain filter to make it seem lower quality

The gun range whose video was ripped off by the fake news, the Knob Creek Gun Range in West Point, KY, does not plan to take any legal action over the deceitful display by ABC.
“(ABC News airing the video) is getting our name out as a business, and we’ll take the free advertisement,” Sumner told the Louisville Courier Journal.
“We’re a family-owned business,” Sumner added. “We’re not money-hungry or sue-happy. We just hope they take more into consideration for what they’re airing.”
Unfortunately, that is not likely to happen. The fake news has been caught misrepresenting the facts hundreds of times, and they will continue to do so until they go broke – which, due to their red-inked balance sheets, may be coming very soon.

President Trump Takes Down Chinese State Media Reporter: “Who Do You Work For, China?”
The reporter works for a company all-but controlled by the Chinese government.
President Donald Trump correctly questioned if a reporter promoting the supposed efforts of Chinese companies to provide needed coronavirus supplies was working for a Chinese-government controlled media company at Monday’s press conference.
Youyou Wang asked a question that was phrased as more of a statement, describing the humanitarian efforts of Chinese companies Huawei and Alibaba as a potential motive for the United States to rescind trade restrictions on China in the wake of the epidemic.
Watch the exchange here:

“Who are you working for, China? Do you work for China, or do you work for a newspaper? Who are you with?”
Youyou Wang stated that she works for a privately owned media company, but scrutiny of Hong Kong Phoenix TV reveals that it’s closely linked to the Chinese government. According to The National Pulse’s Raheem Kassam, 37.1% of the company’s parent, Phoenix Satellite Holdings, is owned by a former Colonel for China’s state propaganda TV channel. Another 20% of the company is owned by Extra Step Investments Limited, which is a subsidiary of a Chinese government-owned company called China Mobile.

Mainstream media operatives immediately pivoted to paint Trump’s wholly reasonable inquiry to the nature of Wang’s media company as somehow prejudiced, claiming that it was inappropriate that Trump question the motives of someone who was trying to defend China’s major corporations and government in the midst of the pandemic.
His suspicions appear to have been validated, considering no more than 65% of the company is owned by individuals and entities with demonstrable connections to the Chinese government. Many of China’s nominally ‘private’ companies are essentially owned by the nation’s authoritarian government and work tirelessly to advance its interests.
