Summary

Facebook has refused to take down a deepfake video posted to Instagram that shows its own CEO claiming the company manipulates user’s data. Spectre showed me that whoever controls the data, controls the future.” The video of Trump appears to show the U.S. president attributing his success to “algorithms and data” saying he “pulled off the biggest heist of the century and people just have no idea.” In the video purporting to show Kim Kardashian, who has amassed a huge social media following, the reality star says she feels “really blessed because I genuinely love the process of manipulating people online for money.” Facebook says it won’t arbitrarily remove the videos, but will treat them “the same way we treat all misinformation on Instagram.” In a statement, the company added that if third-party fact-checkers mark the videos as false it will downgrade them so they won’t receive as much attention — the same action it took against the Pelosi video.
