In the next couple of years you can bet that deepfakes will be used to share misinformation/lies in all of our major media sources. We set the precedent several years ago, encouraged escalation just a bit later, and we will soon lose all ability to tell the difference between real and fake photographic “evidence” on the basis of the photograph itself. And since the majority of our media is profit based, they will have a massive incentive to share the fabricated results even if it requires a retraction or “explanation” later. We will require a new generation of journalists, ones who haven’t sold their integrity, either personally or by working with virtually every major news/media organization today, and are trained in the research required to investigate every claim.

America isn’t ready for this but it’s way too late now.

I chose the Shorter Whitman because of his work, "Song of Myself" and because of my self-deprecating sense of humor. I am under no illusion that I can write successful essays or poetry, but I have been known to write them anyway.
