Fake news is about to get so much more dangerous

( This has been reported or alluded to before. But this is a Washington Post article that's been disseminated  all across the country this week.)


The most powerful false-news weapon in history is around the corner. The media industry has only a short time to get ahead of it.

If technology continues its current advance, we may soon face totally convincing videos showing events that never happened — created so effectively that even experts will have trouble proving they’re fakes.

“Deep fake” video will be able to show people saying, with the authentic ring of their own voices, things they never said. It will show them doing things they never did, by melding their images with other video or creating new images of them from scratch.

At a political level, deftly constructed video could show a political leader advocating for the reverse of what she stands for, or portray bloody events that never happened.

It could trigger riots, swing elections, and sow panic and despair.

More and worse at the link...specific to who is the  " fake"
It will be the only defense they have.

Um, nuh uh.
