In the digital age, social media accounts and plagiarized articles can launch media careers or disinformation campaigns. The next frontier is content generated by artificial intelligence (AI), texts that people find difficult to distinguish from the work of old-fashioned propagandists. The digital world was already prone to disinformation and, as Renée DiResta reports in The Atlantic, this new development will build increasing suspicion and distrust. She posts a giant red flag: If you thought influencers and propagandists were slippery, they’re about to get a lot more so.
