Mr Red BS: education and propaganda (83* d) RE: BS: education and propoganda 29 Oct 20


We sort of know (when our guard is up) when educative news is off kilter, and we understand pictures never told the whole story, and now might be faked. And lip syncing on video is becoming known to intelligent people. BUT I have had respected people tell me they remember what was said in a video, from long since. Even though the circumstances are politically charged and the video clearly could have been carefully chosen & lip-synced.

But recent a New Scientist article is reporting how videos can be processed to change peoples' movements in a scene of objects (that don't move unless attached to the peeps). Slow and expensive maybe, now! ---- But to a foreign government or a political party - chicken feed.

Basically we should Fact Check - but who does? Especially when (eg) FactCheckUK is an arm of the Tory party.

There & I didn't use the Trump word. Oh, failed again.
