Good: People can spot a deepfake video. Bad: They're not so hot with text

Even if this seems obvious to you, at least someone's done the study. That's science.

Really, thank you for telling us!

The relationship of sound, text, video to plausability has long been studied. Video is often abused/recruited to support a particular point of view. There are infamous clips from Gaza but really the film "Wag the Dog" does a great job in showing how media can be manipulated for particular purposes. And then there is Orson Welles' legendary broadcast of War of the Worlds. Sometimes people won't believe their own eyes.
