Given that much more graphic video from Syria was shown by ABC, the implied accusation that ABC attempted to falsify the reality of Syria by showing that video- is not accurate.

“George, run some dramatic video of gunfire at night from Syria. Hell, there are probably tons of videos like that.”

“Uh- Pete didn’t arrive in Syria until this morning, and Frank had his camera confiscated by a local militia. CNN has some video, but they ain’t sharin’ “

“Well, damn! Then just find some video of automatic gunfire at night. It all looks the same, and it’s not as if there is no gunfire in Syria....”

I would imagine that’s pretty much how it went down.

In any event, in contrast to the MO of Breitbart, ABC immediately apologized when the embarrassing gaffe was pointed out.
