Blacklist disinfo videos
Social media reek with fake videos, usually propagandizing for some questionable cause. A recent example came to me via email with the subject, "Yikes...corona virus origin...IMG_1678.mov". The clip stars somebody purportedly named David E. Martin, Ph.D., promoting himself as a National Intelligence Analyst. His pitch, basically, is that the CDC is behind the Covid-19 pandemic. He makes a blatant misstatement early on that nothing natural can be patented, and this is key to his getting watchers to swallow his bogus premise that the CDC behaved illegally and greedily. (Genes, as a counterexample, have been patented, so the author of the claim is clearly untrustworthy.) My friend who sent this to me unwittingly supports a disinformation campaign. Can you please introduce a technique to block distrusted videos however they come to me? And how about sending a response back to the sender that informs them they have actively participated in spreading misinformation?
