    Lots of this election is going to be fought on social media, some very tightly targeted indeed, maybe this could be the thread where the enemies memes are collected and discussed

    Good idea, but better in General, I reckon.

    Videos of Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn apparently endorsing each other have been circulated online, in a bid to highlight the growing risk of misinformation.

    So obviously fake to me. If the out of character nuances in the delivery aren't enough of a giveaway anyway, then its obvious because Corbyn doesn't sound anything like Corbyn, and Johnson sounds like some weird version of Kenneth Clarke.

    What the world needs now
    Are memes
    Sweet memes

    It's an election between two leaders who are memes. I'm not buying into this fatuousness (or at least not another thread for it when there's an election thread already)

    these were actually on BBC News with the guy who made them talking about them, they are part of a (semi)serious campaign to highlight how easy it is to fake stuff.
    The voices were done by impressionists, I think the one impersonating Boris is fairly convincing, the one impersonating Corbyn can't really get him right (or left maybe)

    If there is anything worse that memes then it's right wing memes. Just completely lacking in humour. It's like giving Lee Hurst a crayon.

    Stretching the meme definition to include a new category of moving memes, but thought it was a good one...
