CNET (stylized as c|net), formerly Computer Network, is an American media website that publishes reviews, news, articles, blogs, podcasts and videos on technology and consumer electronics globally. Founded in 1994 by Halsey Minor and Shelby Bonnie, it was the flagship brand of CNET Networks and became a brand of CBS Interactive through CNET Networks' acquisition in 2008. CNET originally produced content for radio and television in addition to its website and now uses new media distribution methods through its Internet television network, CNET Video, and its podcast and blog networks.
A selectively edited video of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden that falsely suggests he's making racist remarks went viral on Twitter this week, highlighting another big challenge for social media companies ahead of the 2020 US elections. The US intelligence community and lawmakers have raised concerns about manipulated videos and "deepfakes," a technique that uses AI to create videos of people doing or saying something they didn't. The Biden video isn't a deepfake, but it shows how easy it is to mislead others about what what someone is saying. It's also another reminder that social media users should be wary about content they swiftly share with a push of a button.
n the original video, Biden said "Folks, this is about changing the culture, our culture, our culture. It's not imported from some African nation or some Asian nation. It's our English jurisprudential culture, our European culture, that says it's all right."
“So, even though that I’m the only campaign that I’m aware of — maybe, maybe Cisneros’s campaign is doing it, I’m not sure — but, um, or Castro’s campaign is doing it,” Biden said at a campaign event in Florence, South Carolina on Saturday. “The, um, fact is that we have reached out extensively into the African — excuse me, into the Hispanic community and the Latino community over my entire career.”

Oh c'mon, as much as I dislike the woman as well, there's no need to spread fake news about that.
