30 Jun Twitter flags doctored video tweeted by Trump about 'racist baby' as manipulated media
Labeling of video made to look like a CNN report marks Twitter’s latest effort to label misinformation amplified by the US president
Twitter has flagged a video tweeted by Donald Trump, which contained a fake CNN news segment about a “racist baby”, adding a warning label that the post contained manipulated media.
The video, which had been doctored to make it appear as if it were a CNN broadcast, features two toddlers running and includes a fake graphic that reads “Terrified todler [sic] runs from racist baby”. The clip later accuses “fake news” of spreading misinformation.
