    Don’t we already live in an era of “deep fakes”?

    Could general mistrust of images mean an end to cell phone vigilantism? Or will we simply choose to believe what we want to believe?

    It's hard to shock me with linguistic idiocy anymore. Abortion is women's health. Torture is enhanced interrogation. Spending is investment. Illegal aliens are undocumented immigrants.
