For some reason, I really wanted to know. This is the earliest mention of it I can find.

Not started it yet; afeared it wouldn't live up to the achingly good first season. Damn.

Irrespective of your opinion on this, definitely watch the fake vs real Pelosi film then watch this interview. It's going to get a LOT worse before it gets better...

6. The crazy thing is, this isn't even close to the kind of deep fakery we're going to see on social media platforms over the next 18mths. Madness.

5. There's a bit about halfway through where Cooper rightly points out that video content works harder than any text or copy around it. This is something Facebook pushes to brands *every day* but in this video, that point is shrugged off. Cool. Cool.

4. What I don't understand is, per Anderson Cooper's well-argued logic, is that if independent fact-checkers say it's false, then why keep it up at all? Aside from to make money from ads served against it? Maybe the answer is in the question.

(it's all so subjective - like, no one is in physical danger but how do you define harmful? Is this harmful to any one individual? Is it harmful to US democracy? It is clearly not, as argued, part of 'political discourse' - actual jokes)

3. While I buy Facebook's attempt at creating policy to help navigate situations like this (eg: 'It's not harmful, so we downgrade it instead'), it will always, as the video shows, end up tying itself in knots as the line will never be clear.

The video in question is *clearly* disinformation, not misinformation, and that demarcation should be made clearer not only by the journalists reporting on it but also to those put forward to defend its presence (in this case: Monkia Bickert - epic media training btw)

2. The UK Government recently moved away from using the term 'Fake News' to help implement clear communication guidelines regarding misinformation vs disinformation. (more on that on Page 7 of this report, here )

This is a fascinating watch, for a few reasons (thread). 1. It's an astonishing marker for how individual platforms are handling this situation. YT: 'We're actively taking it down' TW: 'We're leaving it up and not commenting, lol' FB: 'We're leaving up for *reasons*'

Hey man, something that's got a hold of me and my D2 buds of late is the Triumph tracker. If there's a feature request list, may I politely add a 'Sort by' function, please? Points, rarity, activity, almost complete, etc.
