“the widespread coverage of deepfakes in the media itself helps to inoculate the public…”
There’s another fault in the media – making a story out of a non story.
One example this week.
The no confidence motion by the British PM’s party was always bound to fail. Every reporter knew this for certain. However the media made it out to be a tense battle.
They should have told the truth but that only takes one sentence not hours of interviews outside Parliament
I was disappointed that the article didn’t discuss the importance of teaching school-children critical thinking skills to counteract fake news.
I absolutely agree with the premise in the article. However, it is disappointing that the author offered no discussion about the real significance of ‘why’, instead of ‘how’. That is at the root of these false narratives, and is what needs to be at the center of discussion at all levels.
