We cannot trust anything we see or read in the digital realm.

The AI and deep fake video and imagery are now so good they can be almost impossible to tell apart from the real thing.

Skilled operators exploit that capability in every endeavour to manipulate public opinion. Its most egregious misuse is currently in the theatre of war.
