    The way videos can be altered to look real is pretty scary. You can’t trust pictures or videos shared on social media because most of them are doctored and fake. Technology has come a long way and some are using it for the wrong reasons.

    As long as media has been around, people have found ways to manipulate it. The trouble is, those doing it and the tools they are using get better each year. Of course, what allows them to fake it can also allow us to verify or refute it.

    I don’t think we can really avoid it, no. Long before these methods are possible, humans already know how to play with words and texts. I try to maintain a way of thinking that there is always another side to a story. Always cross-check, always preserve my judgement until I have more reliable info.
