I read this online article about fake videos.  


Think about what "filmmakers" can do with this technology. Liberal Hollywood can put words 
in the mouths of conservatives to fool both their own side and people who would normally vote 
for Republicans. The falsehoods of an Al Gore documentary or willful inaccuracies of Michael 
Moore are going to be surpassed when the ability to create realistic fake videos gets perfected.  

If you recall Rush Limbaugh wanted to buy part of an NFL team, but was denied because 
players thought he said things that he had not. Today someone could put words in his mouth 
and keep playing the video over and over. Tell a lie often enough and it becomes "truth."  

How do you undo the damage? Are people supposed to believe their own eyes or the guy 
saying, "That video is not real!"?  

The 2020 Presidential election is going to be horrible if the technology gets better in the next 
couple of years. Think about how software companies release software in stages with better 
technology already developed, just not released. Someone at a research college developing 
this software could already be teamed up with someone in the movie or "news" business.  
If they do not use this in 2020 it WILL be used in 2024.  

Call me Nostradamus.
