President Trump has to be the left-wing MSM news outlets’ worst nightmare. For what seems like since time began, the media has been feeding us their version of the truth, hoping that we’ll trust them and believe what they say, and thus entrap us in their web of lies and deceit. Up until the last three years (give or take), politicians and the media were the best of buddies, and with relatively rare exceptions, such as Ronald Reagan, did we have anyone in the Oval Office with the chutzpah to stand up to them and call them out for their lies.
However, with the advent of the internet, social media, and smartphones, we have a whole new playing field. President Trump has become the trollmeister extraordinaire on Twitter and regularly calls them on the carpet for their duplicity. And, thanks to the ability to watch streaming videos live on our smartphones and computer screens, it has become a lot harder for the MSM to get away with their spin. They have their agenda, and this president isn’t afraid in the least to dispense his displeasure squarely between their collective eyes, as he did a few hours ago for ABC News report in which they used an American gun range video as supporting evidence for a shooting war between the Turks and the Kurds.
This from Breitbart News:
President Donald Trump on Monday evening hammered ABC News for airing a video that purportedly showed a recent Turkish military operation against Kurdish civilians in northern Syria, which actually appears to have been filmed at a Kentucky gun range in 2017.
“A big scandal at @ABC News. They got caught using really gruesome FAKE footage of the Turks bombing in Syria. A real disgrace,” the president wrote on Twitter. Tomorrow they will ask softball questions to Sleepy Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, like why did Ukraine & China pay you millions when you knew nothing? Payoff?”

The video, which ABC News reported was of an attack on the border town of Tal Abyad, was broadcasted Sunday on World News Tonight and on Monday’s edition of Good Morning America. Yet, a comparative analysis by a technology news site found the footage was filmed at Knob Creek Gun Range in West Point, Kentucky. “[I]t’s clear that the videos are the same,” Gizmodo concluded.
