Speculation Surrounds Gary Gensler’s Resignation Amidst AI-Generated Fake News

Speculation and rumors regarding the resignation of Gary Gensler, Chairman of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), have been circulating once again. However, this time, artificial intelligence (AI) seems to have played a role in spreading the misinformation.

On July 1, an article appeared on a website called “thecryptoalert.com,” claiming that Gary Gensler had submitted his resignation following an internal investigation, citing an anonymous official as the source. However, upon closer examination the text of the article displayed characteristics consistent with AI text generation, scoring high on the AI-detector ZeroGPT.

Further investigation revealed that the website itself is relatively new, with a limited number of posts, all of which appear to heavily rely on AI-generated content. The ownership of the domain “thecryptoalert.com” was also recently updated, raising additional suspicions.

Despite the dubious nature of the source, the article was reposted by several accounts on Twitter, with one particular post by the account @whalechart gaining significant traction, accumulating 1.7 million views at the time of writing.

However, Fox Business Network reporter Charles Gasparino confirmed via Twitter on July 3 that Gary Gensler is not resigning, having received information directly from the SEC.

It is worth noting that this is not the first time rumors of Gensler’s resignation have surfaced. In April, there were claims that he was preparing to be “fired,” although the sources behind those claims were questionable.

In June, U.S. lawmakers introduced the “SEC Stabilization Act” to the House of Representatives, which included provisions aiming to remove Gensler from his position, labeling him a “tyrannical Chairman.”

These recent incidents highlight the challenge of distinguishing between legitimate news and AI-generated fake news. As misinformation continues to spread rapidly through various channels, it is crucial for individuals to verify the credibility of sources and exercise caution when consuming and sharing information.
