Seattle TV Station Caught Doctoring Trump’s Face During National Address
A Seattle Q13 Fox employee has been placed on leave after a disturbing “deepfake” video of President Trump aired during his national address on border security this week, according to mynorthwest.com.
In addition to dialing up the orange to oompa-loompa proportions, somehow the TV station was able to manipulate Trump on the fly to show him creepily sticking his tongue out at viewers.
That comparison reveals the Q13 video creating a loop of the President licking his lips — making it seem bizarre and unbalanced — it also seems that someone distorted the President’s face and my have added an orange tone to his skin –mynorthwest.com
In a statement to MyNorthWest, Q13’s news director said “We are investigating this to determine what happened,” adding “This does not meet our editorial standards and we regret if it is seen as portraying the President in a negative light. The editor responsible for editing the footage is being placed on leave while we investigate further.”
The most disturbing part of the prank is that Trump’s speech was manipulated in real time – a technological feat known as “Deep Fakes” – a convincing computer generated manipulation which can produce an almost believable impersonation of an individual. – Zerohedge

This is a very big story that seems to be MIA from mainstream media. Think about it. You can make anyone look like they are saying anything you want them to say. You can change their appearance. Doing to a clip of a President’s speech on a news broadcast? How long until this technology enters the election wars?
Can anyone know what they are seeing is real or fake? Can anyone be held accountable for anything they say on video any longer?
Do you think these kind of attacks hurt Trump? I believe its the exact opposite.
