This is stupid.
Maraming aspiring college journalists na nasa NCAA-member schools na pwede ninyo gawing sportscasters. Ba’t kayo aasa sa AI? Kesyo AI is the “next big thing” sa news gathering? Ano yan? Manonood kami ng ChatGPT sa TV?

GMA News, you’ve opened a new “pandora’s box”. AI reporters will deliver fake news soon. 👎 https://t.co/UCOtIy1NoI

this sets a dangerous precedent for broadcast journalism in the country. the hype people get from actual sportscasters will never be bested by AI.
tread carefully GMA. https://t.co/64SBemQks2
