For the last episode of Reckonings, none other than: Donald Trump. This episode is part of Deep Reckonings — a series of explicitly-marked deepfake videos that imagine Mark Zuckerberg, Brett Kavanaugh, and other public figures having a reckoning. Here, an imaginary Donald Trump concedes the 2020 election. Watch the video and access the transcript: to see Trump give a real concession speech? Tweet: .@realDonaldTrump here's some actual fake news. Only you can make it real with @stephlepp: Continue the journey beyond Reckonings:
If Brett Kavanaugh, Alex Jones, and Mark Zuckerberg had a crisis of conscience, what would they say? Reckonings presents Deep Reckonings — a project that uses deepfakes to take Reckonings in a *fictional* direction, and imagine public figures having a reckoning. Watch the full series and learn more about the project: This is the last Reckonings episode for a while, and maybe...the last episode.
How do we cover the communications of a president who lies, especially when those lies can be fatal? The traditional rituals of journalism don't really work with a president who doesn't tell the truth, and so, what can we do instead? Reckonings presents Infinite Lunchbox on the topic of how to tackle Trump's lies — aka *post-truth jujitsu*. NOTE: Infinite Lunchbox is better viewed than heard — watch this episode on YouTube: Show Notes: • Jay Rosen on switching to an emergency setting: • Dan Froomkin on live fact-checking: • Matt Yglesias on Trump being a master showman: • Jay Rosen on sending the interns: • Neighbors podcast: Connect: • Infinite Lunchbox: • Twitter: • Patreon:
How do we change our hearts and minds? What moves us to shift our political worldviews, transcend extremism, and make other kinds of transformative change?

And that's the question I explore with lessons learned *from* Reckonings -- in this bonus episode with Inflection Point's Lauren Schiller.
