Yeah sure KLEPPER.

maybe the whole Gaza war is also fake. Maybe AI fabricated in Area 51

While most of the false claims circulating online about the war didn’t require AI to create and came from more conventional sources,

In addition the Hamas "officials" trying to provide fake numbers of those killed in Gaza, one of the more flagrant fakes that didn't need AI was the false report of Israel bombing a hospital.

Yeah, an explosion occurred near a hospital. But it was caused by a rocket shot from the Islamic Jihad.

So, the terrorists bombed their own hospital.

Are people still outraged by the 500 hospital victims killed?

Or is it accepted that the number was vastly over-inflated? Or, the number killed doesn't matter in the propaganda war because they were not killed by Israeli self-defense efforts?

Oh dear.

The Chairman of CCDH's Board is Simon Clark, straight from the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Lab. The Atlantic Council has 7 former CIA directors on its board and is funded by the UK Foreign Office (and the US State Dept and US Department of Defense).

The CCDH's former Head of Communications, Lindsay Moran, is a self-described "CIA operative" in her own Twitter bio with an extensive history of NATO operations in 'covert operations, intelligence & disinformation'.

The CCDH is a fraud, it's a pro-censorship, astroturfing front run by USUK security services and funded by dark money.

Wow biased article much? The Israelis were shown to be using many faked images to support and justify their war crimes but this article seems to point the finger only at the Palestinians...

Interesting. That explains how this got a very lengthy AP "report"...

It may just be my computer illiteracy - but AI certainly doesn't generate an image of a deceased baby for me. Perhaps they're just more savvy with keywords in Gaza...

"Among images of the bombed out homes and ravaged streets of Gaza, some stood out for the utter horror: Bloodied, abandoned infants. Viewed millions of times online since the war began, these images are deepfakes created using artificial intelligence."

And the efforts to trivialize the Palestinian suffering and presenting Netanyahu's war crimes in a more favourable light than deserved continue. Surely the other side would never do the same now, would it.

Alfie- Excellent post

A propaganda war was inevitable as both will attempt to capture sway media public opinion.

It has been the go to for as long as history created a means to circumvent and deliver a powerful deterrence.

So called, AI is just another methodology.

Putting faces on the 8,000 Gazan children murdered by the IDF is beyond even AI's capability. All the deep fakes they can make can't fool our lying eyes that see Biden and Western friends having the back of Israel's war crimes. 30;000+ of dead Arabs is just a number, smaller than the bottomline of unrestricted arms sales to Israel.

On the news I saw the citizens of Gaza attacking the vans containing the hostages who were about to be released. Now there ate reports that many people from Gaza joined the terrorists in their hell raising on October 7th.

Are they against Hamas, or are they supportive of Hamas?

Fake beheaded babies? Raped women?

We know who made these lies.

Many reports IDF Apache helicopters indiscriminately killed many of the people at that music festival are circulating (including Haaretz newspaper - considered the most credible in the country). That is definitely not fake.

The Hannibal Directive is not fake. There is mounting evidence that the post Oct 7 response by the IDF with heavy weaponry was responsible for much destruction.

Between biased news coverage, outright lies and the "fog of war" we really don't have the full picture.

This "Center for Countering Digital Hate" is clearly funded by the Usual Suspects and is gaslighting everyone by pretending the carnage isn't what it is.
