Video source

The fact remains that what we already see, hear, and experience in person and in other media can be manipulated. So should we be more worried?

I say we be aware of the capabilities in arms race of video manipulation and fakery. We should also maintain a health skepticism of what we read, watch, or listen to.

We might also not assume that technology is inherently good or evil. The video manipulation technology that could be used for extortion and entrapment is the same that is useful for experimentation and entertainment.
