The mainstream media was caught spreading a fake video over the weekend in an attempt to show war crimes being committed by the Turks against Kurdish forces in Syria.
ABC News broadcast a video that they said “appears to show the fury of the Turkish attack on the border town of Tal Abyad” that took place on Oct. 11 during their World News Tonight program on Sunday evening.
However, it was discovered shortly afterward that the video used by ABC News was from the Knob Creek Gun Range, which is located in the town of West Point, Kentucky. They host a biannual “Military Gun Shoot & Military Gun Show” where many different firearms are discharged at night. ABC News used the video posted by the gun range from 2017 in an attempt to manipulate the public to support the war in Syria.
Gizmodo posted a video on YouTube showing that the ABC News clip is exactly the same as the video from the Kentucky gun range:
After their deceptions were revealed, ABC News was forced to apologize publicly for their false reporting.
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.

This is reminiscent of what the fake news did in the lead up to the Iraq War, which President Donald Trump has called the worst mistake in U.S. history.
Reporter Matt Taibbi explained earlier this year how the fake news media worked at the behest of the globalist Bush administration and the deep state to con the U.S. public into supporting the war in Iraq:
In the popular imagination, the case for war was driven by a bunch of Republicans and one over-caffeinated New York Times reporter named Judith Miller. Even the attempts to make comprehensive lists of Iraq cheerleaders post-invasion inevitably focus on usual suspects like Fleischer, current Trump official John Bolton, neoconservatives like Max Boot, David Frum, and Bill Kristol, and winger goons like Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter. But we expect the worst from such people.
It’s been forgotten this was actually a business-wide consensus, which included the enthusiastic participation of a blue-state intelligentsia. The New Yorker of Remnick, who himself wrote a piece called “Making the Case,” was a source of many of the most ferocious pro-invasion pieces, including a pair written by current Atlantic editor Jeffrey Goldberg, one of a number of WMD hawks who failed up after the war case fell apart. Other prominent Democrat voices like Ezra Klein, Jonathan Chait, and even quasi-skeptic Nick Kristof (who denounced war critics for calling Bush a liar) were on board, as a Full Metal Jacket character put it, “for the big win.”
The Washington Post and New York Times were key editorial-page drivers of the conflict; MSNBC unhired Phil Donahue and Jesse Ventura over their war skepticism; CNN flooded the airwaves with generals and ex-Pentagon stoolies, and broadcast outlets ABC, CBS, NBC and PBS stacked the deck even worse: In a two-week period before the invasion, the networks had just one American guest out of 267 who questioned the war, according to Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting.
Exactly one major news organization refused to pick up pom-poms, the Knight-Ridder newspaper chain. All the other major outlets, whether they ostensibly catered to Republican or Democratic audiences, sold the war lie.
The fake news is trying to undo President Donald Trump’s peace push in Syria, but a vigilant citizenry on social media is making it more difficult to peddle their lies.
CANCELLED: Conservative Gatekeeper Caleb Hull Has Racial Slur Laden Tweets Exposed After Joining Leftist Witch Hunts Against ‘America First’ Movement
Some poetic justice for Mr. Hull.
Faux-conservative gatekeeper Caleb Hull, who has attacked many prominent ‘America First’ voices for not being sufficiently politically correct, is now under attack from the same leftists who he has cheered on in the past.
Jared Holt of Right Wing Watch exposed Hull’s history of making offensive comments on social media. Hull worked for Turning Point USA before becoming a digital communications strategist and marketing his services to pro-Trump Republicans.
“In 2014, Hull made anti-Black, anti-Muslim, and anti-LGBTQ remarks on a Twitter account that RWW determined belonged to Hull by reviewing archives from the account and comparing them to still-active posts on accounts where Hull uses his real name. The account, with the handle @FlwTV, was deleted from Twitter shortly after RWW started reaching out to Hull’s industry colleagues,” Holt wrote.
“Hull casually deployed the n-word on his @FlwTV Twitter account on several occasions and shared jokes in which the slur was the punchline. In one instance, he remarked that he was banned from a streamer’s chat room after he “spammed” the n-word “17 times.” Hull promoted racist tropes about Black people, specifically those involving watermelon and fried chicken, Black children without fathers, and slaves picking cotton,” he added.
While Holt’s hit pieces are meant to enforce cancel culture on the Right and typically abhorrent, Hull’s history of joining leftist witch hunts against conservative voices guilty of mob-imposed wrongthink has made these circumstances particularly ironic.
Hull once went after Kaitlin Bennett of Liberty Hangout after she was attacked by a mob of campus leftists, inferring that Bennett was asking for it due to her history of confrontational political activism.
“When you knowingly enter an area with hundreds of people who you know hate your guts that will confront you, going in without alerting police or having protection isn’t just “exercising your right to free speech.” It’s just plain old stupid and a call for attention,” Hull wrote in his tweet blaming the victim.
“Nothing unites America quite like hating Kaitlin Bennett,” he wrote in a subsequent tweet.
When @KaitMarieox was assaulted and rioted against by hundreds of students, @calebjhull blamed her for it and said she should expect violence. Today he's crying about how he's being canceled. Sorry but you shouldn't have joined Antifa if you didn't want to play by their rules! pic.twitter.com/sBsoNxV1uM

Hull also attacked right-wing pundit Michelle Malkin, calling her an anti-Semite for refusing to disavow paleoconservative video blogger Nick Fuentes.
Time and time again, mainstream conservatives think the cancel culture mob they feed will never eat them too. They think they can fend it off with condemnations of those farther right. But one day, it'll come for them too. Welcome to the club, Caleb Hull! pic.twitter.com/VFJPSiRW1A

The cancelling of Hull by the social justice mob should teach a lesson to every conservative who believes they are untouchable because they serve Conservative Inc. and try to police their speech to appease the Left. Sooner or later, the mob will come for your scalp as well.
