President Zelensky's Pretentious Vogue Cover Shoot

"Let me change subjects and cut to what I think is the wildest, most insulting story of the week and probably the month. And that is the insane and weird idea for Ukraine's president Vladimir zelensky and his wife to pose for Vogue in the middle of a war where tens of thousands of his people have been shot beaten to death, raped and tortured or completely eviscerated by bombs, missiles, and air strikes. And God knows there's going to be some poison shit that's going to happen to pretty soon. Some poison bombs. If it hasn't happened already. But the minute zelensky heard that Vogue wanted him in the wanted him and his wife and the great Annie Leibovitz was going to shoot the pictures who could pass that up. I mean, when Anna wintour, when she calls, you drop everything. Including the welfare of the very people, you were elected to protect. Now, remember, this is the same magazine and the same editor who refused to have Melania Trump on its cover. Even though qualifications as a model are good enough or were good enough and are being the most beautiful First Lady ever who literally lived the American Dream should have counting should have counted for something too. But no, no, let's get this lenski's on the phone. I'm sure the war will be fine. It'll fight itself without them for a few days. What's the worst that could happen? I can give Vogue shit all day.

WTO news time two ten, two top Ukrainian officials have been suspended by president volodymyr zelensky for treason and collaborating with Russia. One of them is the country's lead prosecutor and the other is Ukraine's head of state security. Zelensky's moves suggests the fight against Russia isn't just happening on the ground, but in the government itself. WTO national security correspondent JJ green joins us live to explain the inside threats JJ, who were they and why exactly where they fired. Prosecutor general Iran. And Ivan, the leader of the security service of Ukraine. The reason the large number of treason investigations open into employees and law enforcement agencies, including the prosecutor general's office and the domestic security agencies, which these people run. There are more than 600 open investigations and the people working in those agencies, including more than 60 people who have stayed in Russian controlled parts of Ukraine after this conflict broke out in February and according to Ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky, these people are helping Russia. That's why these people were suspended. It's most likely they will be fired, but it's a grave problem they have. JJ, how big of a problem is Russian collaboration with a Ukraine's government to Russia? Well, Ukraine's intelligence agency has more than 27,000 people in it. It's the largest agency of its kind in Europe. It's also the successor to the KGB once the USSR dissolved. And Ukrainian intelligence for the last 15 or 20 years, even further back has had serious problems with infiltration from Russian intelligence. And has every country in Europe and the U.S. have that same concern. Russia has essentially tried to get its hooks into countries all over the place, but Ukraine is right next door. It was a former USSR satellite, a lot easier to do. And let's not forget 8 years ago, Ukraine's president Viktor Yanukovych fled the country, went to Russia, taking tens of millions of dollars with him. Clearly, they were questions about the intelligence and government under him, so it stands to reason. They're still maybe some concerns today. So how does all of this impact the war and who eventually wins it? You said it at the top of this hit, Sean. This is a part of what Russia does, and this is a part of what Russia is hoping to do in terms of looking at the long game. They want people inside the corridors of power in other countries around the world. And Russia is like a big octopus. They've got tentacles everywhere in these tentacles run deep in some places. They're on the surface and other places. But the bottom line here is Russia is hoping to have enough people in positions in places around the world to help influence the governments, the intelligence agencies and the people in these countries so that Russia can essentially push forward with its own interest and its own objectives and goals and that includes in a case like this, whether we're at war with the country, they can have an advantage. Here in the U.S., illegals are very, very popular in terms of the term that Russia and others here in the U.S. used for people that Russia dispatches to countries to try to essentially overthrow them without them knowing about it. These are sleepers. People who essentially sit quietly and wait until they're asked to come into action and Russia has this whole thing, I guess in their minds figured out as far as Ukraine goes, if they can wait long enough, get enough people in positions, then they can win this war. And so that's what they hope will be the essentially the end result of having this influence in Ukraine's intelligence and government systems. All righty, JJ, thanks so much. JJ green, it's two 14.

Mister zelensky said there were more than 650 open investigations into allegations of treason and collaboration with Russia. In addition, 60 workers from both offices were accused of remaining in occupied territory and working against Ukraine. The prominent Russian journalist Marina of Yanukovych has been detained briefly by police in Moscow.

Thank you. Thank you. You're listening to the newsroom from the BBC World Service with Oliver Conway. Since the start of the invasion of Ukraine, Vladimir Putin has fired numerous Russian intelligence and military officials blaming them for the slow progress by his forces. Now the Ukrainian leader volodymyr zelensky has done some sackings of his own. In his nightly address president zelensky said he'd fired the head of the Ukrainian security service and the state prosecuted general because he said some of their staff were suspected of working for the Russians. Stalin, as of today, 651 criminal proceedings have been registered regarding state treason and collaborative activities of employees of prosecutor's officers, pre trial investigation institutions and other law enforcement agencies. In a 198 criminal proceedings, relevant persons were notified of suspicion. It is the biggest shake up of the Ukrainian government in nearly 5 months of war. Our reporter Harry bly told me more about the two sackings. Well, Oliver, the first one to be fired is the security service chief Ivan bakanov, he's a longtime friend of president zelensky, who led his presidential campaign, also is prosecutor general irina Benedict over. She's the former foreign affairs adviser during his presidential run, and she's also been leading Ukraine's investigation into the alleged atrocities committed by Russian forces in the town of butcher outside Kyiv, which caused international outrage she has been replaced by her deputy Alexei simonenko. Now Vladimir zelensky said he had lost faith in their abilities to run their respective offices neither have commented yet. So what exactly have they done wrong or at least people in their departments done wrong? Zelensky says there's been an array of crimes committed by employees of both the security service and the office of the prosecutor general. As we heard, he said 651 open investigations were going on in the allegations of treason and collaboration with Russian special services, including aiding and abetting Russian forces. He says it's been committed by several law enforcement agency employees in addition 60 workers from these offices were accused of remaining in occupied territory and working against Ukraine. He also said this raises very serious questions for the leadership of these agencies, which explains why these two have been sacked. And talking about occupied territory, we've also got some more details about another person who was sacked earlier on in the conflict. Yes, this is all a lineage. She was a former regional SBU. That's the security services chief in Crimea. He was appointed in October 2020, but was fired on the 2nd of March just after the full scale invasion by Russia zelensky said the decision to sack him was justified on Saturday he was detained by the SBU and accused of working for the Russian special services, charged with several articles of the criminal code, including treason.

The Truth About the War in Ukraine With Rep. Victoria Spartz

"So let's refocus on what's happening in Ukraine as somebody who's been there who's been to the war zone. Will you give a picture of how the Ukrainian people are suffering the reality of living in a nation that has been invaded? Tell us what you have seen with your own eyes. Well, I think and I have to, you know, just because you know, I'm sorry and it was all of the criticism president zelensky has a very tough job. I have to say that he wants his country wherever so that he can do. And I think we just need to be household to him and to Ukrainian people because in the local governments, there was a lot of politics right now because if you think about it, local governments, Ukrainian people, Ukrainian army. Hold off this offensive that no one could imagine. This is a strong people. This is people are going to fight till the end. And it doesn't matter. You know how long it takes. So who's helping or not? They're not going to surround that. It's a matter of we don't have them. Some of the best and brightest people are just going to die. And it's going to be unfortunately, just not for Ukraine is, but for all of us. And if you think about it, you know, when I went there and when I saw, you know, what's happening in the city. When I went to city of cherry hill, you know, my great grandpa. He actually lab partisan movements. You know, this is like a position resistant movement.

Congresswoman Victoria Spartz on Zelensky's Weaknesses

"You congresswoman spots have been very forthright in your recent statement. You said the following in your second of three points, president zelensky, has to stop playing politics and theater and start governing to better support his military and local governments. Please, would you expand upon the weaknesses of his current leadership and what needs to be done differently? Well, I kind of expect you saying, you know, and I actually ran them if I partisan cadel right before the war and we had information. And this was very public information that Russia has grown to attack. I can provide reasonable now that maybe mainly just, you know, the key was to explain that they didn't want to have panic, although you know what, you know, welcome and you've been in the war for 8 years. We did more preparation than I was in focus. You handled like a drill that America could, you know, attack us, you know, pretty much all the time in school taught how to put AK-47 together less than 45 seconds and using gas masks and everything else. So regardless of what it is, you have to have people riding, but regardless what's happened before. It's very surprised for me that Ukraine was not included in the war mode because you are in a real war if you maybe have a different assessment before. You need to put your people industry every Ukraine and have to work for efforts to be able to win this war. And I haven't seen this evidence, and I was very surprised as soon as Kyiv started to get involved by ballistic rockers saying, you know, I was surprised to see that a lot of people tried to live their lives as usual, which I understand you get tired of war, but unfortunately your wife and children get them killed right, kidnap human traffic. You have told us a guy on the front line. The economy is getting destroyed. Your country is on the huge attack. You can not have life as usual until you win the war.

What the Media Isn't Telling You About Ukraine and Zelensky

"And so where it gets confusing for a lot of people in the west is that if you just let us know what Washington D.C. says, it sounds like Putin is just beginning his grand Napoleonic or hitlerian march across Europe. But when you break free of kind of that propaganda, we recognize and realize that this seems as if to be more kind of a family conflict that he wants very specific parts of Ukraine. Is it true that 80% of Ukraine's military has been destroyed and also why is it that Washington D.C. wants us to get more involved with this conflict giving the facts that you just presented? Well, the force that was in the field when the war started, this was the standing army of the Ukrainian state, which we had poured billions into to equip to train and to prepare for offensive operations, frankly, against the two autonomous republics and then eventually Crimea. 80% of that force is destroyed. And 80% of the soldiers that were part of that force are either dead or wounded. So that's a very serious condition for the Ukrainian armed forces. What the Ukrainians are relying on right now are, well, we would call the equivalent of reservists and national guardsmen and in many cases just civilians pressed into service. So that I think is the first answer that you need. The second part is that, you know, this nonsense that Putin wants to conquer all of Ukraine was never true. All he ever did in the Minsk agreements was asked that Russian speakers Russian citizens inside Ukraine be treated equally before the

Charlie and Colonel Macgregor Dissect the Invasion of Ukraine

"Early on, we tried to warn people that the west getting involved in the Russian Ukrainian war, Putin's invasion of rush of Ukraine would be a mistake. We condemned the invasion from a moral standpoint, but we said that this will only cost more lives that this could have been solved if zelensky would have allowed elections to occur in the eastern part of Ukraine and allowing those provinces, those territories would be part of Russia. But where are we today? $56 billion that we know of have been appropriated towards this. We don't even know where the money's been spent. And unfortunately, it seems as if Putin says he's only getting started with us to help unpack this as someone who has been a very clear and courageous voice. Since the very beginning of this conflict, it is colonel McGregor, colonel. Welcome back to the program. Thanks, Charlie. So colonel, let me ask this question, what is the current state of affairs on the ground in Ukraine because it's very murky if you just read western press. And then secondly, is it true that Putin is only getting started in Ukraine? Well, let's answer the first one first. He currently controls, I would argue all of the traditional Russian areas that are inhabited or populated with Russian speakers as you pointed out earlier. This is the area that if you held a plebiscite back in 2014 would have undoubtedly voted to join Russia or voted for some form of independence. So from Putin's standpoint, he's largely achieved his aims. The only two objectives that remain are kharkov up in the north, which is historically a Russian city and Odessa in the south, which is historically Russian. Now the reason I say he plans to ultimately take those two as the totality of his interest is that he is largely withdrawn, about 70 to 80% of Russian army combat forces. The forces on the ground that are effectively mopping up Ukrainian forces are for the most part Russian separatists from the two autonomous republics that had already tried to break away from Kyiv and were subsequently recognized this year by Moscow as independent.

Abe noted according to The Economist. Shinzo Abe was close with Donald Trump. It was probably the closest prime minister. Of anybody with Donald Trump is the first major leader to meet with Trump. You might remember Donald Trump doing a foreign visit to Japan. They both agreed that China and the Chinese Communist Party must be restrained in their growth.

How little the left cares about the working class, the middle class American, that they would squander your money because they hate Donald Trump so much, and they're threatened by Donald Trump. Why are they so threatened by Donald Trump? That's the question you should be asking, what is it about Donald Trump that has these people so terrified that they will make up a Russia collusion hoax that they would try to impeach the man twice even when they had we literally had notes when it came to him. Congratulating zelensky impeach him again over that. And now when he's out of office, basically, basically enact a third and third impeachment. What is it about this man that establishment Republicans and the left hates or fears? You have to ask yourself that question, this doesn't make sense. Why would you go after a man and weigh so many resources to do so when he's not even in office? It makes this is insane to me.

"Hey folks, it's Jim Hansen. I have sitting here in studio. Oblivious to the fact that we just went live because I was talking to my good friend amazing filmmaker and one of the most culturally elite members of the America first crowd, Amanda milius. Welcome. Thank you. I'm so glad to be on in the new spot. Isn't this cool? This is like a crazy show. It is the coolest thing. I know. No, I almost am like not worthy. I would like like I said, I almost wore sweats. I know. You got to do that. On the bottom. You have to have the top here. Yeah, I'm used to just being able to pull it together on the top, and then everything else is like yoga pants, and I'm like, maybe I'll get dressed today. Yeah. Yeah, well, we did it. And we're on the late night TV talk thing. Now, I want to talk kind of production value. Because I don't know if you notice, there is a giant show trial propaganda fest for the invented insurrection going on. That was pretty, I mean, yesterday was, there are some really good memes created out of yesterday. Like if a day creates good memes. It's a good day. So yeah, it's us. It's our team winning. Yeah, there was this one where like, I think they had like shots from one of those White House down or something movies or and then they had, I mean, it was so with the beast. The grass, like, that's basically what she was describing. I mean, it was absolutely insane. And good on them. But I want to kind of get into your area of expertise because the left decided when they were going to have these show trials that they were going to hire a TV news executive to stage them. Tell us super cool. It tells you a lot. And then you've got legs zelensky going on like every meeting with every celebrity he possibly can. You're like, man, this guy's got a lot of time on his hands 'cause I'm just trying to run a production company, like not run a war. I don't even have time to do that. That's amazing.

"It. I think we kept talking. We asked president zelensky more about what countries were doing the most to help. We talked about Russia, we talked about Vladimir Putin. This still sticks with me, he told me that Vladimir Putin wasn't even mourning the Russian army's casualties. That he was throwing Russian soldiers like logs into a train's furnace. I guess the conversation must have gone on for another hour more. And at the end we wrapped up. Thank you. Thank you so much. Thank you very much. Judge will practice his speeches a lot. Do you practice yours? No, I don't have time for. I feel it. Thank you very much. Thank you so much. Danger for comment. Thank you. Thank you. We were eventually led back out of the building. We got our phones, our equipment, retraced our steps, and emerged out into the bright sunshine of the streets of Kyiv. A little later in the afternoon, we went out for a walk, strolling around the empty streets of Kyiv. Completely hauntingly empty. That's our car there. In case we have to get into it in a hurry and get out of here. We spent the night, the following day we had more interviews, and then we went back to the train station for the overnight train to lviv. And when we finally got to this hotel room, I asked our cardi, what did he make of all of this? Well, then yes, I mean, this wow and what has just happened is something that actually been following me throughout this trick because there is a sense of completely surreal reality around us. I mean, this is a Second World War movie set, except it's actually really happening. And what really struck me is how is the landscape was not performing? You know, you could expect an actor, very good communicator, as you said, to do his spill, to be a commander, to be war leader, to be Churchill. And actually because everything that's happening is so real, it is to do with his life. He's the target. His wife, his family, his kids. There was no room for performers. There is no room there for some rhetorical flourishes. He is who he is. And he understands that it is his genuine and his authenticity. Which is what makes people believe him. I think this is what's so striking is that to a lot of the outside world and because this is the way how we try to conceptualize it, it's a movie. It's a book it's something from history to this people in this country at the moment. This is the story. This is the life they're having. I think that's right. He is the kind of the country personified right now, because whether it's the trains, whether it's the nature of the anti tank barricades and Kyiv, it's all faintly it's not chaotic, but it's sort of informally organized. It's networked. It's sort of spontaneous groups of people. Everyone we talked to and we talked to many people in the subsequent days, many more interviews. We were sort of piecing together a picture of our country's resistance that wasn't really there wasn't a grand plan from on top. It's been the epitome of, I guess, cooperative spontaneity. And zelensky, I think he's playing his role in this, and his role is to be the communicator. He is the person who is talking to the world. He's talking to the parliament. He's talking to the people of the world. He is the face, The Voice of Ukraine, and that's his role in this. He's playing it extraordinary well. You're right, he's not acting because he is being himself he's being absolutely authentic. Is that I think you've actually picked on something absolutely essential, not just about this war, but about this country, because over the years, one of the most frustrating things covering Ukraine was just how chaotic it is. It can't be run like this. You know, there are no institutions. There is anarchy. But in fact, it is corrupt anarchists sometimes, you know, sometimes extraordinary movement of people and voluntary movements, particularly since the revolution of dignity in 2013. But it is actually exactly that that anarchy that Sansa, we don't rely on the state. We all know what to do. The country comes together, everybody knows their place. It's that chaos is that anarchy is that network effect, if you like, that actually made this country so strong and made it resist the largest army in Europe for four weeks. I mean, it is extraordinary. And zelensky is the public international avatar of that. He's the man who is addressing the British Parliament and quoting Churchill. Addressing the American Congress and remembering 9 11. It's pitch perfect. Throwing no idea. He's laying out what Ukraine needs. He's the face he's the voice of Ukraine. He is the avatar of a determined brave country that is resisting with all its mic. Putin's aggression. The whole machine. Exactly. But let me say, universite. Choose a word now. And.

"Unbreakable or not. It's like, I have to do this way. It's like all of us that we are not ready for the war. Before it began, you can't say, if I would be the president of Ukraine or Ukraine, I would do this way, or you can't imagine what does it mean. And you can't imagine even how you will do. It was like with me when in fact, the really remarkable thing was that zelensky found out about the war's start from his children. I think nobody nobody understood what to do when it began. And my wife and my children they told me that early in the morning, it was four 50. And they told me earlier that I've got the call from our staff. Your wife and children told you, they told that something goes wrong because we heard it very loud. And we were slipping. Straight away. We knew about that there prepared. We knew it, of course. And it was but even once the shelling started, he told us that he was very clear that he did not want to leave Kyiv, even though that had been the presidential protocol. And they said that the protocol that if you will not be safe, it will be a big problem for the Ukraine. You have to be in such place where you will be saved and it's not about you. It's like drunk man on the road that it's not about his life. It's also about the lives in other cars. Yes, but I'm not drunk. And I think to change the protocol, you didn't go. Yes, of course. Of course, I changed everything. What I could do, I think that. And you decided that by yourself, you said yes, of course. Of course. And what's going on? I understood that all these steps and all these protocols all that sinks, they about global things, not only about the grain. That's why I'm saying that I'm not a hero, maybe. Over the past months, it's clear that Ukraine has had a thumping victory in the information rule. And that's an area where zelensky, the former actor, has really come into his own. Is that the way now you are speaking to the people of the course, rather than of course, of course. I think so, that sometimes politicians live in vacuum, atmosphere, just all information that we do that so the consequences can be escalation and war. What we see that this example was closed atmosphere, which is with Putin now. So he doesn't know. I can't describe every single going on with him. I can't describe because I don't know how much that would be with who to speak each day or each week and that means that he can't understand or he couldn't know what's going on outside even me if I'm sitting in the office and I am not going outside in three four days. You will not know correct information what's going on in the world because only in this interview was pretty remarkable because it was conducted in a rather chaotic combination of three different languages. President zelensky speaks really quite good English now and indulged me by speaking in English for a lot of the time. He responded to questions in Russian himself. But when he got tired of speaking English, he felt it was important to respond to questions in English in Ukrainian, not in Russian. So we had a complete Malay and at one point there wasn't a formal interpreter and a interpreter had to be brought in and he was busy doing something else. But we got through it and we now switch in this.

One of the major candidates had a deep fake version of himself. The deepfake would appear in videos making jokes and speaking to voters. This was fully authorized by the candidate. Everything his deepfake alter ego said was carefully scripted by his communications team. One Wall Street Journal story suggested the deepfake was actually wittier and more likeable than the real thing. And perhaps ominously, this deepfake augmented candidate won. He's now the president elect of South Korea. Should every candidate create a deepfake doppelganger or is this a worrisome trend that we should try to nip in the bud? That's a really interesting middle ground of an ethical debate of where's the line of when this is acceptable? And in my opinion, you know, it's very dangerous to kind of oversimplify. But at the end of the day, for me, the line really is deception. The South Korean example you mentioned is interesting. It reminds me of a few years earlier, there was probably one of the first uses of deepfakes in politics that anyone noticed, which happened in India, a candidate was campaigning, and he spoke one language, and he wanted to reach people who spoke other Indian languages. And they faked him. So his campaign team, they had him record a message, and then they sort of use deepfakes to kind of lip sync them to make it look like he was speaking to those other languages. And you could see one argument as they're trying to deceive and trick people to make it seem like he appeals to more people than he does. Or he could say he's trying to connect to more people. How is that different than subtitling? The examples of politicians using deepfake versions of themselves to shape their image. So this raises a possibility for me and you're at a college. I want you to get a little bit sophomore dorm room with me here for a second. If there was a real person, but they just never left their house, never went on the campaign trail, never changed out of their pajamas, and they just campaigned as a deepfake. Where everything was perfectly scripted because their team could control it and they would never sort of sweat or have any of the problems that a real person would have, is that, I don't know, is that okay? Could we handle that? Is that not? If this was someone pulling a prank and tricking us, I'm not okay with that. But if someone were open and honest, let's say they had an autoimmune condition. And it's during a pandemic, and it's literally not safe for them to go out. Why should we only have people who have, you know, robust immune systems able to campaign, that doesn't seem fair. That doesn't seem right, and we might be missing out on really wonderful politicians. So it depends on the context, but I would say there definitely are situations where what you described, you know, some people could have mobility issues. This could help them travel further. So I think there's situations where it absolutely would be more than right. It would be equalizing. All right, let me lead you further down this primrose path. Now, what if they win, could you have deepfake governance? Could you, I mean, now you have a committee of people behind the curtain and you've got the deepfake president out in front. I mean, how often do you really see Joe Biden in the flesh? A deep fake president? Well, again, here's another really silly, but maybe helpful example. A lot of politicians don't write their own speeches, right? They have speech writers. So someone who's part of the team has put these words together, and they're a mouthpiece for it. Does it really make so much of a difference if that mouthpiece is the human manifestation? If that's Joe Biden or if it's an animation, to me, what matters is the content and the ability to connect to the voters. You could say, oh, a deepfake is somehow less human, right? It's like having a hologram president. So okay, it's less authentic, but it could be more personalized. Politicians in many ways are kind of figureheads, right? They all have staffers, they have teams, Congress people are not writing all these laws themselves. They have staffers do this. So they already are kind of the deepfake reference of their staff. It's not a deepfake, but you know they're channeling that information and presenting to the public. So the next iteration where a computer algorithm does this, I don't think it's as far fetched as it seems at first. And I don't think it's as morally wrong as it seems at first. If it's done in a not terribly deceptive way, I wouldn't be surprised if that's where we're heading. And I'm not too alarmed by that. Well, along those lines, going back to the zelensky video, the FBI warned in advance that Russia would employ deepfakes as part of its information warfare strategy. So it seems like the video made those concerns look prescient, is this just something we should always expect now and be ready for, even if it's something we wish would go away. One reassuring thing I think we're already seeing with this invasion is people are already much more on the lookout than we were a few years ago. As far as this general idea of mis and disinformation, it's in our public conversations. It's in the news. Especially with things like Francis haugen, the Facebook whistleblower and all these political hearings. As a society hearing that these issues of disinformation are out there, that I think we're kind of primed to be extra vigilant. Not everyone and it doesn't mean we'll be right all the time, but I think people in general are more on guard. And I think this has played a large role. And I think it's best to not think of deepfakes as its own separate entity. Like, okay, we have to figure out how to address this. It's better to think of it as part of a larger story of we're swamped with information and misinformation and it's becoming increasingly challenging to discern the two and deep fakes are just kind of one more layer to that complex onion of information and misinformation. We're not going to solve deepfakes and we're not going to be destroyed by deepfakes, but whatever challenges we're facing before are definitely going to be a little bit harder and we're going to have to be a little bit more vigilant, but I think we are taking steps in those directions.

Using fake images as a dirty trick in politics or in conflict situations, it's not actually new, right? It's been happening sort of since the invention of photography. That's right. Yeah, I mean, there's some funny old historical examples like even Abraham Lincoln has this photo where he looks kind of heroic and masculine. And it turned out that they stood his face on actually the body of a notorious pro slavery advocate. And the reason they did, that is Lincoln had kind of a gangly form and he didn't look very masculine. They wanted to make him look more heroic. At a superficial way, the easiest way to say it is we've had the ability to do that with photos, as you said, since the beginning of your photos, and really what deepfake technology, which is based on artificial intelligence and neural networks, really the difference now is we can do that with videos. That realm we live in with Photoshop that we've already been existing in where we look at a fashion magazine cover and we just assume it's photoshopped. I mean, in one sense, that's not really okay. I mean, that can have real effects on things like beauty standards to just accept that we're going to let people Photoshop and make fake images like that. Should we let ourselves just become acclimated to this stuff? It is very problematic, right? But the key is who's being harmed, right? If a deepfake came out about President Biden and it influenced American politics, I think there would be a strong reaction. But if there's a slow erosion, as you said, beauty standards and millions of people's self esteem starts going through the gutter, it's more of an external cost and it's more distributed, so it's harder to fight back. There's sort of a lot of harm spread over a lot of people rather than one singular event. And I'm a little bit worried that that's kind of the situation with deepfakes. We keep waiting for the one singular event and we thought maybe the Russian invasion would produce such a thing. And so far it hasn't. But in the same way that we kind of forget that fake altered photographs have been in politics and conflict forever. It seems like we keep talking about the horizon of how some deepfake video is going to eventually cause a catastrophe. We're like, we're waiting for some big destabilizing moment, but in fact, haven't we already seen incidents around the world where the existence of deepfakes can have dramatic consequences? You're right that we keep waiting for like, where's the big moment when a deepfake fools us all? Well, part of the answer is if it fooled us all, we wouldn't know it was a deep fake. That's part of the challenge. It's not like we're going to all be fooled and then a week later, someone says, ha ha, got you. It was a trick. The good deep fakes might still be out there. For instance, the African nation of Gabon, the president Ali Bongo in late 2018, suffered a stroke, disappeared from public eye, and his government said, oh, you know, he has the stroke. He's recovering. But if you look at their constitution, there's a time limit I forget if it's four or 6 weeks. If the president's unfit to lead for this period of time, they have to have a snap election. Which means the government could lose power. And people kept saying, where is he? So the government released this on social media of recorded message is about two minutes of the president speaking on new year's January 1st, 2019. And he gives his new year's address. But it looks very odd. In the video, president Ali Bongo sits at a table and speaks directly into the camera. But he looks different than he had in previous appearances. His movements are slightly unnatural. Parts of his face seem frozen. His skin is weirdly smooth and unfurled. Right away people start to say, hey, this is strange. And actually, one of his political opponents, the guy who ran unsuccessfully against him in the previous two elections, he actually said, I think this is a deep fake and the theory caught on and the government didn't really directly address it. They didn't bring the president down in public, but they also didn't really have any evidence that it wasn't a deepfake. So we didn't know what's going on, and the military they were attempted to coup. The coup began within about a week of the video's release. The soldiers who launched the coup bolstered by the deepfake theory said they believed the president was actually incapacitated. And that no one was in control of the country. The coup was foiled within a day. The president subsequently made public appearances. But he looked frail and unhealthy. Two years later, the incident remains murky. We still don't know exactly what happened. Here's two possible histories that could have happened. One was, he really was incapacitated. He was unfit to lead, legally there should have been an election. He could have lost power and the government deceived the population by using this deepfake. And they basically held office by using successfully using a deepfake that to this day we, you know, we haven't really caught. Here's the other possible history. He had a stroke. You know, it can cause partial muscle paralysis. It can affect the way your face looks. It can affect your speech patterns. It can affect your blinking rate. So another very plausible history is that it's not a deepfake. He had a stroke, he was speaking the best he could, and it took him many months to recover and eventually did. We don't know what the reality is. Some auditors who've run the video of the president through software analysis. Say they have a high degree of confidence, it wasn't fake. But one of the problems here is that in some ways, it doesn't matter if it was fake or not. The proliferation of deepfakes throws every video into doubt. Because any video can at this point be semi plausibly accused of being a deep fake. That's terrifying, right? That a politician can be caught, half made an affair or doing some corrupt thing, and they can just say, no, that's not me. That was deep faked. How can we ever prove that they're wrong? Just on the technical level, when it comes to fighting deepfakes, the first thing is the struggle to identify them. So how good are they? Are they, at this point, able to trick even people using high-tech approaches to identifying them? Or are they not quite there yet? Well, that's a very delicate question because it's an arms race. The methods that are used to generate these are the same methods that are used to detect these. So as the algorithms get better at detecting, they also get better at generating, sometimes there's some competitions like Facebook and some other organizations collected a whole bunch of deepfakes and a whole bunch of authentic videos. And they said, all right, let's have a public data competition and people come with algorithms and they see how what percentage you can identify correctly. And I forget the winners at the time. This is maybe a year or two ago, got something like 80%. So that's great, right? You're doing much better than random guessing, but it also means any one particular video you don't have a heck of a lot of confidence that the algorithm did it correctly. In other words, it'll catch a lot, but there'll be a lot of false positives and a lot of false negatives. It's not up.

"Detected very quickly and debunked very quickly. Noah Johns your accuser is a Professor of math and data science at Bentley university. And the author of a book about how algorithms can both create and prevent misinformation like deepfakes. He thinks this particular deepfake effort was a little silly. Because it was easily refuted. Even to the naked eye, it wasn't all that convincing. And right after the video appeared, the real zelensky made a statement assuring Ukrainians his resolve was strong. And so, in this case, the deepfake was immediately thwarted. For some, the fact that this video was so simple to dismiss suggests that deepfakes aren't yet something we should be worrying much about. For others, this zelensky video was troubling. It felt like yet another step down a dangerous path. Toward a moment when a more effective deepfake will have tragic real world consequences. But Noah thinks there's something both of these camps are missing. The incident seems to highlight the potential power of a deepfake that it could be used to dramatic effect. If it was convincing enough, if it was deployed in the right way, are you worried that if future deepfake video could have some kind of profound, terrible impact on the world? I'm worried, but the point I'd like to raise is we don't just need to look to the future. If we look to the past, there's already been some pretty tricky situations where videos have been out that to this day we still don't know if they were deepfakes or not. There's this kind of idea that, oh, because the zelensky one was very low quality and we called it right away. It means all somehow all of deep fake technologies just not there yet. And as AI develops, one day we won't be able to tell truth from fiction and then the problem will really hit us. But I think it's more subtle than that because it really depends on the context, it's not just the technological issues. It's not like, oh, deepfakes aren't there yet, and in a few years, they'll be great, and we won't know what's true. It's really how they're used that's so confusing. Today, on the show, we keep waiting for the big deep fake moment to arrive. But will we even know it if it does? Or has it just maybe already happened? And what if, stay with me, deepfakes aren't so bad after all? Could they actually be put to use as a force for good, not evil?

"zelensky" Discussed on The Secret History of the Future

"Detected very quickly and debunked very quickly. Noah Johns your accuser is a Professor of math and data science at Bentley university. And the author of a book about how algorithms can both create and prevent misinformation like deepfakes. He thinks this particular deepfake effort was a little silly. Because it was easily refuted. Even to the naked eye, it wasn't all that convincing. And right after the video appeared, the real zelensky made a statement assuring Ukrainians his resolve was strong. And so, in this case, the deepfake was immediately thwarted. For some, the fact that this video was so simple to dismiss suggests that deepfakes aren't yet something we should be worrying much about. For others, this zelensky video was troubling. It felt like yet another step down a dangerous path. Toward a moment when a more effective deepfake will have tragic real world consequences. But Noah thinks there's something both of these camps are missing. The incident seems to highlight the potential power of a deepfake that it could be used to dramatic effect. If it was convincing enough, if it was deployed in the right way, are you worried that if future deepfake video could have some kind of profound, terrible impact on the world? I'm worried, but the point I'd like to raise is we don't just need to look to the future. If we look to the past, there's already been some pretty tricky situations where videos have been out that to this day we still don't know if they were deepfakes or not.

"zelensky" Discussed on CNN Political Briefing

"Hey everyone, I'm David challenging, the CNN political director, this is the CNN political briefing. Here's what you need to know in politics for Wednesday, march 16th. It was a historic speech. Ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky gave an emotional plea for more help from the United States when he addressed a joint meeting of Congress today. President zelensky of Ukraine knew going into this speech that he was going to ask for things that the Biden administration and even members of Congress are not willing to give him. He understood that going in. That didn't stop him from making the appeal. He also understood that he wasn't just addressing of course members of Congress in the United States. He was addressing the American people. As for those specific needs, he still has and his seizing of this opportunity to impress upon the policymakers in the United States to deliver on those needs, here was zelensky once again, asking for the U.S. and its allies to create a no fly zone over his country, or absent that, provide fighter jets to the Ukrainians. Russia has turned the Ukrainian sky into a source of death for thousands of people. This is a terror that Europe has not seen, has not seen for 80 years, and we are asking for a reply for an answer to this terror from the whole world. Is there a lot to ask for? As for that emotional appeal, zelensky invoked American tragedies that are seared in the minds of citizens across this country, such as Pearl Harbor, and the September 11th terrorist attacks. His speech also featured a short video, very graphically depicting the brutal toll of this Russian invasion of his country. He was able to, in this video, sort of portray what was happy, pre invasion Ukrainian life, and then juxtapose that with buildings that are civilian in nature, getting completely blown up some entirely leveled by the Russians. The video showed dead Ukrainians in the streets. It showed what appeared to be mass open graves, young children, getting into transportation and ruins. It was gut wrenching. And in the end of it, in English, the text read closed the sky over Ukraine. And out of that video, zelensky switched his comments to be speaking directly to the Congress and the American people and the American president in English. He made a direct appeal to President Biden. I wish you the leader of the world. Being the leader of the world means to be the leader of peace. A few hours after zelensky spoke, President Biden spoke today from The White House where he was detailing specifically new financial commitments that he is making, but he also made sure to tell the world that he watched zelensky's speech. He speaks for people who have shown remarkable courage and strength in the face of brutal aggression. Courage is strength that's inspired not only Ukrainians, but the entire world. In the world is united in our support for Ukraine and our determination to make Putin pay a very heavy price. Biden was touting today $800 million of new dollars in the omnibus bill that he signed yesterday that will go to security assistance for Ukraine, bringing the total commitment that has been announced just in the last week from the United States to $1 billion. The U.S. will provide Ukraine with anti tank missiles, small arms like machine guns, shotguns, grenade launchers, drones, and more anti aircraft missiles. As Biden has been doing very regularly throughout this process, that he is not going to get the United States into a position where it's fighting World War three with Russia over Ukraine. And as for that no fly zone that's zelensky keeps asking for. Biden is not alone. In saying, no, that's too far for us. Obviously, NATO allies, many of them have said that is to far for them as well, and there's bipartisan support in Congress for Biden's position. You're starting to hear a few, especially on the Republican side members, say they really would like to see a no fly zone, but that is not the majority opinion right now. I mean, you can't get more different than Democrat congresswoman Chrissy houlahan of Pennsylvania and Republican senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, but here they are in agreement with the president's position. So I still am firmly in the camp that a no fly zone provided by NATO forces and Americans is not something that we should consider right now, but I have been in support of making sure that we're providing the president and his administration president zelensky, all of the things that he has been asking for short of that and short of boots on the ground. I do not support a NATO no fly zone. I understand the need from the Ukrainian perspective. To stop the bombardment. But when the president and his team indicate that that would be an escalation that would involve the potential conflict between NATO members and Russia, he's right. Now, Congress, even in a bipartisan manner appears to want to move more aggressively still than the Biden administration is indicating and clearly having sat through zelensky's speech there up on Capitol Hill today, there was real passion, real impact on these members. Take a listen to Republican senator from Nebraska, Ben.

"Great. Ukraine is. And at the leader of my niche, I am addressing the President Biden. You are the leader of the nation of the university. I wish you to be the leader of the world. Being the leader of the world means to be the leader of peace. Thank you. Global green. Lori to Ukraine. No, standing ovation from everyone in Congress. Prolonged ovation. Okay, that was the president is zelensky's Cummins. Correct, that is the end of the. That was the end of the speech. There was more videos curious. Well, there's nothing much to say. You've heard it. It was quite clear. We need more help. I don't see the difference, there was obviously military difference, but in terms of principle, I don't see the difference between giving Ukraine anti tank missiles and anti aircraft missiles and giving them planes. That doesn't involve any NATO country. Putting boots on the ground or for that matter boots in the air. So. A price is paid when in your part of the world a country is essentially being destroyed. And it is not stopped. I am not calling for American troops or NATO troops to enter. I have never called for it since the invasion. If you read to my column yesterday, you should read the comments, and how many said, for example, why didn't prager mention the bioweapons factories in Ukraine in his article? I don't understand the question. Of course I don't deny their existence. What does that have to do with the invasion? That's why.

"Blunt. Ladies and gentlemen members of Congress, please take the lead if you have companies in your districts who finance the Russian military machine leaving business in Russia, you should put pressure. I am asking to make sure that the Russians do not receive a single penny that they use to destroy people in Ukraine. The destruction of our country, the destruction of Europe. All American ports should be closed for Russian goods. Peace is more important than income. And we have to defend this principle in the whole world. We already became part of the anti work coalition big anti war coalition that unites many countries, dozens of countries, those who reacted to in principle to president Putin's decision to invade our country, but we need to move on and do more. We need to create new tools to respond quickly and stop the war. The full scale Russian invasion of Ukraine, which began on February 24th. And it would be fair if it ended in a day in 24 hours that evil would be punished immediately. Today, the world does not have such tools. The war of the past have prompted our predecessors to create institutions that should protect us from war, but they unfortunately don't work. We see it. All right, we're going to put this on Holden continue with president zelensky's address to Congress. When we return, this is the Dennis prager show. The Dennis prager shout. Many people own coins that have not performed as well as they'd expected. Some own coins that have done better than they expected, or maybe you just want to cash out and do something else with the money. Markets change and to understand the current value of your precious metals portfolio, you should get a new valuation. I'd like to tell you about my friend and he is otherwise I never use that term. Nick rovik came my friend because I so admire his honesty and integrity and knowledge of the coining world of the gold world, the silver world. He's owner of am fed coin and bullion for over 40 years. Nick has built a reputation for trust and honesty and his goal is to earn your business for life. Nick won't push you to sell, but when you're ready, I believe he offers the best price trade and consignment deals compared to anyone. Right now, Nick and the am fed team are offering their exclusive coin performance review for free. That's right, free, with a no pressure guarantee from Nick, call Nick at 802 two one 7 6 9 four. That's 802 two one 76 94. We're continuing with Ukrainian president zelensky's address to Congress. That should protect us from war, but they unfortunately don't work. We see it you see it. So we need new ones, new institutions, new alliances, and we offer them. We propose to create an association. You 24 united for P is a union of responsible countries that have the strength and consciousness to stop conflicts immediately provide all the necessary assistance in 24 hours. If necessary, even weapons, if necessary, sanctions, humanitarian support, political support, finances, everything you need to keep the peace and quickly. Save the world to save lives. In addition, such association such union could provide assistance to those who are experienced natural disasters, man-made disasters who fell victims to humanitarian crisis or epidemics. Remember how difficult it was for the world to do the simplest thing just to give vaccines vaccines against COVID to save lives to prevent new strains. The world spent months years doing things like that much faster to make sure there are no human losses. No victims. The ladies and gentlemen, Americans, if such alliance would exist today, that is you 24. We would be able to save thousands of lives in our country. In many countries of the world, those who need peace. Those who suffer inhumane destruction. I ask you to watch one video video of what the Russian troops did. In our country in our land, we have to stop it. We must prevent it, preventively destroy every single aggressor who seeks to subjugate other nations. Please watch the video..

"I think a lot of Cuomo sexuals learned that one the hard way in 2020. So even when I admire certain actions taken by famous or influential people, I try to remind myself that one action or a set of actions does not represent their whole that I probably don't agree with everything they've ever said or done. And that even if I don't ever find anything particularly heinous on their part, no person deserves to be dehumanized as an idol. But so long as we keep all of that in mind, I think it's okay to enjoy the good while it's here. Knowing that some good does not excuse or negate any bad in the past or future. So please indulge me while I share some of the things that I have learned over the last week about Ukrainian president Vladimir zelensky. As you probably know, before becoming president zelensky was a successful comedian, screenwriter, and actor. Last week, fellow comedian Jon Stewart reflected on watching someone from that trade be tasked with defending a nation against invading forces, saying on his show the problem with Jon Stewart quote, we're watching shecky green transform into Churchill. And indeed, even not knowing his professional background, one which Stewart describes as having quote a general brand of cowardice that runs through our business. Zelensky's words and actions since Russia invaded have been exceedingly admirable. After identifying himself as Putin's number one target and then people subsequently alleging that he had fled from Kyiv, zelensky posted a video of himself out on the streets of the city in broad daylight, telling the people as translated by The Washington Post, quote, I'm here..
