Fake It Till You Make It: Russia Probe Inquiry, ‘Deepfakes’, and Dads
Special Counsel Robert Mueller dropped the mic a couple weeks ago, but Washington still has some unfinished business with the Russia investigation. The Attorney General has launched an investigation into the original investigation. Pre-Mueller. We’ll tell you more about it – and what it has to do with comments President Trump made on TV last night. Meanwhile, the House Intelligence Committee met today to talk about ‘deepfakes’ - aka manipulated videos that seem real. AI experts warned today: they’re not ready to detect them all. Also on today’s episode: a new poll about dads feeling ‘dad shamed,’ and the Stanley Cup’s post-victory journey. PS: Father’s Day is this Sunday, and we want to hear about the dads or dad figures in your life. Leave a message at 646-461-6370 and you may hear your voice on the show.
