Despicable: Seattle News Station Caught Doctoring Trump Video to Make President Look Stupid

A Seattle Q13 Fox employee has been placed on leave after a disturbing “deepfake” video of President Trump aired during his national address on border security this week, according to mynorthwest.com.

In addition to dialing up the orange to oompa-loompa proportions, somehow the TV station was able to manipulate Trump on the fly to show him creepily sticking his tongue out at viewers.

That comparison reveals the Q13 video creating a loop of the President licking his lips — making it seem bizarre and unbalanced — it also seems that someone distorted the President’s face and my have added an orange tone to his skin –mynorthwest.com

In a statement to MyNorthWest, Q13’s news director said “We are investigating this to determine what happened,” adding “This does not meet our editorial standards and we regret if it is seen as portraying the President in a negative light. The editor responsible for editing the footage is being placed on leave while we investigate further.

The most disturbing part of the prank is that Trump’s speech was manipulated in real time – a technological feat known as “Deep Fakes” – a convincing computer generated manipulation which can produce an almost believable impersonation of an individual.

Most recently Nvidia showcased an AI algorithm that can create realistic looking photos of people who don’t exist.

And in China, state-run Xinhua news agency has rolled out an AI anchor which is disturbingly lifelike.

“AI anchors have officially become members of the Xinhua News Agency reporting team,” said the agency, adding “They will work with other anchors to bring you authoritative, timely and accurate news information in both Chinese and English.”

The new AI anchors, launched by Xinhua and Beijing-based search engine operator Sogou during the World Internet Conference in Wuzhen, can deliver the news with “the same effect” as human anchors because the machine learning programme is able to synthesise realistic-looking speech, lip movements and facial expressions, according to a Xinhua news report on Wednesday. –SCMP

We wonder if the MSM will give their Seattle comrades a pass for doctoring the Trump video, unlike the treatment received by Infowarseditor Paul Joseph Watson, who was falsely accused of doctoring footage of CNN‘s Jim Acosta pushing a White House intern.

    1. This new FAKE EPISODE SHOWS that the Liberal Cesspool Minds are all over the place…

      No surprise here! Perhaps the Bright Ideas of their promising BOZO Looking Star, Ocasio-Cortez, will end up pushing them over the abyss… once and for all.

      GOD BLESS AND PROTECT AMERICA FROM EVIL LIBERALS AND THEIR MINIONS..

      Semper fi.

  1. There will come a time when the MSM finally realizes they have hitched their butts to the wrong wagon. Trump has been spot on in pointing out the fake news, bias, outright lies, and fact censoring of these bastards.

  2. Every radio and TV station must hire needed technical people from the available supply of such technicians. They usually do not screen for the political philosophy and personal opinions of such persons. Technical personnel are expected to perform their assigned tasks professionally, and to not manipulate any news content (text, photos, video footage) to support their own personal opinion – which may differ from the management of the station that employs them. The station has taken appropriate action: suspend the employee while investigating the incident.

    But, it is good that someone who observed the questionable incident took the action to compare the broadcast with other source broadcasts of the same speech, and file a complaint, complete with necessary evidence.

  3. Our republic is in serious jeopardy and the blame goes to the leftists. All because they didn’t get their way in 2016. Yet the “sheeple” continue to vote in these corrupt politicians who have an unpublished political platform to destroy our way of life.

  4. Unfortunately it goes much deeper than just losing 2016 election.
    Former DESTROYER IN CHIEF accidentally revealed the real final goal of that America hating party. He stated that demoncraps unfortunately do not have long enough stretch of power to complete their goals. He counted the enormous destruction of our country under his tyrannical regime would continue with the most criminal political figure Hillary Clinton erected into Oval Office which would more or less be the end of our country with damages irreversible.
    Just see the magnitude of the crimes committed by our law enforcement agencies (totally transformed into mob like enterprise under Obama) just to assure the election results as planned by Obama.
    That is the reason left totally lost their minds as our elected president Trump spoiled the outcome. Have we ever seen an insanity by the left to such global proportions- NEVER!
    But it means our country still has a chance for survival for now ! The only way it had s future is by complete demise of the enemy within – enemy no terror organization no matter how vicious could compare – demoncrat party

  5. it is getting very hard to get ANY real news in seattle.the bullshit and filler that the local communist editors use for news is NOTHING THAT VAGUELY RESEMBLES NEWS.

  6. NOTHING WILL HAPPEN TO THIS GUY, HE IS LIBERAL AND WASHINGTON IS A VERY LIBERAL STATE. I KNOW BECAUSE I LIVE IN WASHINGTON NOT BECAUSE I WANT TO BUT BECAUSE I HAVE TO.

  7. Fake news at it’s best. These totally biased and stupid reporters that call themselves journalists are constantly exposing their true colors. The news stations better wise up and wake up to the American people being so tired of their constant lying and manipulating about the president and the republicans. If you want real stories of anti American politics all you have to do is focus on the democrats and their mouths. The democrat party is a total disgrace to America.

  8. Can you imagine what the Socialist Communist Fascist Racist Degressive Democrat Party would have done if that happen to Obama or to Clinton.
    They would have executed the person and blame conservatives. Sadly the Socialist Communist Fascist Racist Degressive Democrat Party and the demented people that vote for them can insult, disrespect, belittle and degrade anyone from our President all the way to legal immigrants of every race creed and color. The Socialist Communist Fascist Racist Degressive Party infiltrated and took over the Once Democrat Party. The Democrat Party is dead and gone. The Socialist Communist Fascist did a remarkable job. They first went into education when Vietnam was going on. They avoided the draft and went to college getting teaching degrees. The indoctrination started
    And Socialist Communist Fascist teaching spread gradually in the seventies, picked up more speed in the Eighties when the educators became professors. It really peaked in the nineties. What also help was some radical music, hippie movement and entertainment. Let’s not forget the Dept of education that was formed in the seventies that little by little took control away from the parents. Today if a parent are restricted in protesting what their child is taught. The public school have control over the children. This is why the Socialist Communist Fascist Racist Degressive Democrat Party fight against tax dollars go to private schools. They loose the brainwashing and indoctrination of the children. The future will be mighty bleak if the Socialist Communist Fascist Racist Degressive Democrat Party gets more power.
