Twitter proposes draft deepfake policies

  Twitter proposes draft deepfake policies And it wants your help in choosing how to moderate themLate last month, the Twitter Safety team announced it’d be seeking feedback on what a deepfake and synthetic media policy would look like on the platform. In a blog post on Monday referencing that announcement, Twitter vice president of trust and safety Del Harvey wrote that if manipulated media was flagged on the platform, Twitter could end up placing a notice next to it alerting users that it’s been distorted, warning them that it’s false before they share it, or adding context in the form of a link or news article breaking down why others believe that it’s untrue.

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.

  300+ Trump ads taken down by Google, YouTube 60 Minutes finds over 300 video ads for President Trump were taken down, mostly over the summer, for violating company policy . But the archive doesn't detail what policy was violated. Was it copyright violation? A lie or extreme inaccuracy? Faulty grammar? Bad punctuation? It's unclear. The ads determined to be offending are not available to be screened. We found very little transparency in the transparency report.

The nearly 20-second Biden video, which garnered more than a million views on Twitter and also spread on Facebook and Google-owned YouTube , came from a longer ABC News video of Biden speaking for more than an hour in Derry, New Hampshire, on Dec. 30. In the ABC News video, which CNET viewed, Biden is responding to a question about his work around sexual assault and domestic violence. But the anonymous Twitter user who posted a clip from the ABC News footage shared a shorter version of Biden's remarks without any initial context about the topic the presidential candidate was discussing.

Joe Biden defends son Hunter but acknowledges Ukraine work 'may have looked bad'

  Joe Biden defends son Hunter but acknowledges Ukraine work 'may have looked bad' There is no evidence the Bidens engaged in corrupt acts related to Ukraine. When asked by Telemundo if it was wrong — even if legal — for Hunter Biden to take the board seat, Joe Biden doubled down on defending his son. "There’s nothing asserted that he did anything that was illegal," Joe Biden said. "Here's what I'm not going to do. I'm not going to — and I know you're not intending to do this — play the game to take the eye off the culprit.

"...the culture. Our culture, our culture, it's not imported from some African nation or some Asian nation. It is our English jurisprudential culture," Biden said in the video clip on Twitter. The tweet that accompanied the video read "Biden proclaims the 'European' identity of America: 'Our culture is not imported from some African nation.' "

Twitter users, some with thousands of followers, commented that Biden was part of the alt-right and racist. Other users pointed out the clip cut off part of Biden's sentence and left out important context.

In 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."

A Twitter spokeswoman on Thursday said the tweet that included the Biden video didn't violate the company's rules. The company is working on a new policy to address manipulated video although it's unclear if it would apply to this type of video. Twitter said it's defining manipulated media as "any photo, audio, or video that has been significantly altered or fabricated in a way that intends to mislead people or changes its original meaning."

Biden's campaign didn't have a statement about the video. The Twitter user who posted it didn't respond to a request for comment. In a tweet, the user said the Biden video was a "tightly cut clip" but was "factually accurate" and not doctored or edited. Facebook and YouTube didn't reply to questions about how they were approaching this type of video.

Social media companies have different approaches to misleading videos. In May, videos of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi were doctored to make it seem as if she was slurring her words. YouTube, which has a policy against "deceptive practices," took down the Pelosi video. Facebook showed information from fact-checkers and reduced the spread of the video, although it acknowledged it could have acted more swiftly. Twitter didn't pull down the Pelosi video either.

Social media companies are also grappling with deceptive videos in political ads. In October, Joe Biden's presidential campaign asked Facebook to remove an ad by Donald Trump's reelection campaign because it contained misinformation about the former vice president. Facebook rejected that request, noting it doesn't send speech from politicians to third-party fact checkers. The Trump's campaign ad on Facebook included a 30-second video that stated Biden had promised Ukraine $1 billion if officials in that country fired the prosecutor investigating a company affiliated with Biden's son. There's no evidence to support the claim, which has been debunked by fact-checking groups and media reports.

Nancy Pelosi claims Facebook doesn’t care about the truth .
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi shared some harsh criticisms of Facebook at a press conference today. Pelosi said Facebook doesn't care about truth and has been "very irresponsible." "Even if they know it's not true, they will print it," Pelosi said, apparently referencing Facebook's political ad policy which caused a stir last year. Facebook also refused to take down a doctored video of Pelosi that made her appear drunk. At the time, she accused Facebook of enabling the Russian interference in the 2016 election. Now, Pelosi says, "they intend to be accomplices in misleading the American people.
