Animation is one thing, but, I haven't much doubt they already can do this with some to even give the illusion we're watching a live news feed. We do seem to be heading down that matrix road anyway if we aren't already in it.

So was that really a tape of Osama Bin Ladin telling us about future terrorist attacks?
The presentation was based on a fictional incident of nuclear terrorism in Brussels. Following the fictionalized incident, the EU audience that was invited to the event was presented with a digitized version of Osama Bin Laden claiming responsibility for the attack.
Chiesa relates that the parliamentarians present at the briefing were dumbstruck. The authenticity of the "confession" video was stunning. It led one unnamed politician to stand up and question the veracity of all of the OBL videotapes that have been presented to the public since 9/11. Chiesa says that CSIS would not allow the makers of Zero to use their digitized OBL in the film.

Didn't read everything, so somebody's already pointed this out most likely.
You still need original audio and a human actor. Audio isn't that hard to fake, but lipsyncing perfectly is. This technology, as it is right now, would not make faking video that much easier...
