“Disinformation” is the new disinformation.— Brendan Carr (@BrendanCarrFCC) March 9, 2020
We’re seeing an intentional and coordinated effort by established gatekeepers to equate political speech they don’t like with the entirely separate categories of doctored deep fakes, illegal content, and deceptive cheap fakes. https://t.co/mKTf9hzi5O
Here's the full quote the edited video leaves out:— Shermichael Singleton (@Shermichael_) March 8, 2020
"Excuse me. We can only re-elect Donald Trump if in fact we get engaged in this circular firing squad here. It's gotta be a positive campaign."
Biden called for an end to "negative attacks" in the primary with Bernie. https://t.co/GFhPvydnCX
The shortened video Scavino tweeted shows Biden saying “we can only re-elect Donald Trump.”— Donie O'Sullivan (@donie) March 9, 2020
The original video shows Biden encouraging Democrats to unite, “we can only re-elect Donald Trump if we get engaged in this circular firing squad, it’s got to be a positive campaign.
Your periodic reminder that this only happens when one of Facebook’s outside fact-checking partners decides to rate a post as false, which automatically tells the algorithm to apply the treatment. Facebook isn’t the one making the call here. https://t.co/HkEs0yFjUf— Brian Fung (@b_fung) March 9, 2020
For the first time, Twitter applied its new “manipulated media” label to a deceptively edited video.— Hamza Shaban (@hshaban) March 9, 2020
The edited Joe Biden video was shared by White House social media director Dan Scavino and retweeted by President Trump.

The @JoeBiden campaign is putting Facebook on blast after a misleading video of Biden retweeted by Trump was labeled by Twitter as “manipulated,” but not by Facebook.@schultzohio going so far as to call Facebook’s lack of action a “national crisis.”— Sarah Mucha (@sarahmucha) March 9, 2020
Full statement below: pic.twitter.com/SoWCAmFJ5q
FCC Commissioner Carr is using his official government account to attack a private company (over which his agency has *zero* jurisdiction whatsoever) for enforcing its own terms of service ban on deceptively edited videos because it did so against the president who appointed him. https://t.co/WfIu0rgXDJ— Andrew Feinberg (@AndrewFeinberg) March 9, 2020
Outstanding. Twitter showing leadership here. This is the right move. They also should eliminate their algorithm providing any reach/velocity to it. It’s a deceptive cut and should be labeled which Twitter has full right to do. Ignore @DanScavino @bennyjohnson’s absurd protests. https://t.co/3pxgicU5Yy— Jason Kint (@jason_kint) March 9, 2020
Biden: “We can only re-elect Donald Trump if in fact we get engaged in this circular firing squad here. It's gotta be a positive campaign."— Asha Rangappa (@AshaRangappa_) March 9, 2020
The video going around: “We can only re-elect Donald Trump." (Ends)
The (omitted) “if” makes it a conditional statement. Not a gaffe. https://t.co/o8dScgr6hB
Again: you don’t need fake content or lies to create disinformation. In fact, you want to use the truth as much as possible. Just, you know, not the whole truth. Selective editing is an extremely simple technique, expect to see it a lot in the coming months... https://t.co/jX6mhGXUXO— thaddeus e. grugq (@thegrugq) March 9, 2020
Consider this:— Chris Lu (@ChrisLu44) March 9, 2020
The president retweeted a doctored campaign video and triggered Twitter's first-ever labeling of "manipulated media"
Yet, somehow the president thinks the public should trust him over public health experts when it comes to #coronavirus https://t.co/BpGNxgR3Mn
Deliberately edited video to make Biden appear to say the exact opposite of what he said. Not Qanon. Not Alex Jones. Not Sean Hannity. This was done by the White House. These people are vile.— Gary Andover (@andover_gary) March 9, 2020
Twitter flags video retweeted by President Trumphttps://t.co/yEk9H9ZPzR
Republicans can't govern @gop— Republican Cover Up! (@wildwestleft) March 9, 2020
THEIR LIES- CHEATING PUT AMERICANS IN DANGER!**
DIRTY DONALD'S DEMENTIAL is getting worse
republicans know it so they are PROJECTING it onto Joe's stutter.
example ---*TRUMPS TEAM KNOWINGLY SENT OUT FAKE VIDEO! **https://t.co/LeCSMi6cEx
This is a genuine request for conversation bc I know that I know good, kind people who are Bernie supporters. With the *actual campaign* pushing the dementia story, how are people like me who stumble when I talk, supposed to feel welcome in your movement?https://t.co/kH6uLUWw22— Melinda (@melwedde) March 9, 2020
Sunday, Twitter determined a video spread by Trump "violated its rules against synthetic and manipulated video and labeled the video as manipulated content. By that point, it had been viewed more than five million times and retweeted more than 20,000 times https://t.co/ln2POWG0MN— Rasmus Kleis Nielsen (@rasmus_kleis) March 9, 2020
