    Like certain someone who used a picture of a Russian ship to wish the US Navy a happy birthday?

    Need more info on the OP though.
    Trump: "Our plan is to keep the American people safe."

    Pelosi: "That's not a plan. That's a goal."

    ABC should be called out for this.
    They did get called out, removed it, and appologised for it. Now they should insure that something like that doesn't happen again.

    It looks like ABC has now apologized for the error and, frankly, I can see how this kind of thing happens in the heat of the moment when you really need a good quality war zone video for your broadcast and you don't have one so you get a staffer to hop on YouTube to find something that looks appropriate.

    Sucks when you get burned on it, however.
    The war in Kentucky...
    It's brutal. That's all one can really say.

    I was there this summer and I've got to tell you, you'd never know it was happening. Granted, I was somewhat more focused on the bourbon than the blowing stuff up but if I'd known about it I'd have definitely enjoyed a little of both.

    Meh. The quality of so called 'journalism' that we've come to accept, anymore. Hardly surprising when the media has taken on the mission of 'destroy Trump at any cost' (to themselves and their credibility).

    While you may be graceful in your decision to grant them benefit of the doubt, I most definitely will NOT do the same. Here's why.... This is an enormous, extremely wealthy and well funded mainstream "news" media outlet. They have unlimited resources that SHOULD be utilized to ensure the accuracy and credibility of their reporting. They have MANY employees whose task it is to verify that stories and video footage is legit! That's particularly important now, that less people trust them than ever before!

    If I were to have posted a bogus video here on this site, and I tried to falsely claim it to be proof of some point I was trying to make, I would expect to be called on it, and I AM NOT a multi-billion dollar, multinational media conglomerate! I DON'T have endless resources, and countless editors checking my work.... But THEY DO!!

    I think they found this "convenient, scary footage" of what appears to be a scary war zone, and they INTENTIONALLY aired it, and falsely claimed it to be "proof of how Trump's policy of leaving Syria is causing the mass murder of Kurds"! It's NO different than all the other fraudulent photos and videos(that the media have conveniently NOT made ANY attempt to verify) that they air, and claim to be proof that "Orange Man is bad"!

    Remember the "kids in cages" photos that turned out to be from the Obama era? Remember the video of federal agents destroying water supplies left in the desert for illegal immigrants, where the media claimed "its a Trump era policy"? But we quickly discovered the video was ALSO made during the Obama era! Remember AOC's fake "sad look" video, where she was pretending to be shedding tears over the sad and badly treated illegal immigrants just on the other side of the fence(which the photo strangely didn't show)? Turned out that there was NOBODY on the other side of the fence, as it was a friggin parking lot! The other photos proved that she was manufacturing a fake, emotion grabbing photo for her fans in the "news" media to air!
    Leftists elites have ALWAYS praised and supported socialist/communist countries and leaders........At least until the 'experiment' fails, and the countries collapse. It's ONLY then, that they start claiming that "it wasn't real socialism"!

    How does a big news organization like ABC make that kind of mistake. Pretty incompetent.

    It will happen again as long as they can make Trump look bad.
