I guess we just can’t believe anything anymore.
“New technology on the internet lets anyone make videos of real people appearing to say things they’ve never said. Republicans and Democrats predict this high-tech way of putting words in someone’s mouth will become the latest weapon in disinformation wars against the United States and other Western democracies.”
As often as I see people sharing obviously fake news stories, I’m not holding out much hope that we’ll suddenly get skeptical about fake videos. That leaves us wide open to manipulation.
