Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) visited the Heritage Foundation on Thursday to talk about an issue that only a few Americans even know about:Â â€œdeep fakeâ€�Â media.
In this newÂ high-tech age that we live in, Rubio explained, people can use special effects with such accuracy that they can manufactureÂ recordingsÂ ofÂ â€œyou saying or doing something that you never did or said.â€� These areÂ deceptionsÂ that can easily ruin a personâ€™s reputation, and people will certainly believe them.
â€œIâ€™m grateful that we have this forum here [at Heritage] to begin to talk about this,â€� Rubio said.Â We need to address the issue now, he argued, because the technology canÂ sow instability and chaos in the nation.
Your loyal support for the conservative movement allows Heritage to spearhead these critical conversations. Thank you forÂ defending national security and the reputations of fellow Americans.
How do you think we should address lies and distortions in the media?
