“This is a black eye for ABC News”.
Believe it or not, that was the first sentence in CNN’s response to the doctored video ABC aired this week in an effort to “inform” the public on the situation in Syria. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black…
We move on.
This week ABC News confirmed that the media is working to make this administration look as evil as possible.
Rumors were circulating within hours after Monday’s evening news programming that the network had misled the public with video footage from a source that was not in Syria. Those rumors would be confirmed, as it turns out ABC took video from a Kentucky gun range and publicized it as footage from the Syrian border.
The network has since issued an apology, but seeing as the majority of people consume news in passing, the damage appears to have been done:
“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.”

Some in the media have come to the defense of ABC News:
Once again, the media proves itself to be a propaganda tool of the left.
