Not much detail or information on deepfake techniques. Shallow.

I love that this article gives us a view into how large media companies are dealing with the increasingly complex problem of fake or altered video. It also explains the issue succinctly and clearly to convey just how hard this issue is to tackle not only for every day people but also for journalists and media companies.

Surface Level

The article falls short in many ways, only providing a surface level take on the issue of deep fakes in news coverage. I was hoping to at least see an example of a deep fake video or the deep fake that Reuters used internally. The article doesn't go into the technology involved in creating or spotting deep fakes and leaves me with many unanswered questions.
