ABC News aired a video on Sunday that host Tom Llamas said depicted a Turkish attack in northern Syria against Kurdish civilians. Turkey is indeed pushing into Syria and slaughtering Kurds along the way, but the video ABC News played last night is from a military gun demonstration in Kentucky that was published to YouTube in 2017.

ABC’s Fake News quotes: “This video obtained by ABC News appears to show the fury of the Turkish attack on the border town.”

In other words, ABC News sources its video clips from Youtube. Never a good idea – but I have seen this done before – using unverified – or even other event – video from social media without disclosing the source.
