An article on CNN reports on a new Photoshop tool that could help fight fake images online by making the content producer responsible for making the image trustworthy, rather than leaving it to each individual viewer to sort out. The article quotes Siwei Lyu, who studies digital forensics. He believes the tool will be more effective than the limited metadata that may be connected to images today, which he said is easy to manipulate. "This should have happened a long time ago," said Lyu. The article was carried on numerous news outlets nationwide.
