ABC News Used Footage From a Kentucky Gun Show and Said It Was Syrian Warfare

Trust in the news media is at historic lows. Days like today won’t make it any better.

During Sunday evening and Monday morning broadcasts, ABC News showed footage from a gun show at the Knob Creek Gun Range in West Point, Kentucky. Except they told viewers it was a showdown between Syria and Turkey.

“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,” a network representative told the Washington Examiner, which first reported this story. “ABC News regrets the error.”
