News Corp CEO Robert Thomson challenges AI-generated content’s left-wing bias, accuracy

News Corp CEO Robert Thomson blasted the left-wing bias and inaccuracies spewed out by AI generated content — calling it “rubbish in, rubbish out” — even as he warned the technology threatens to kill thousands more jobs across the news industry.

Left-leaning media giants that dominate the news business have churned out stories for years that are not only riddled with errors, but also written with a left-wing slant.

Yet bots like the popular ChatGPT search engine will regurgitate the claptrap as fact, according to Thomson.

“People have to understand that AI is essentially retrospective,” the media executive said during an appearance at the Goldman Sachs Communacopia and Technology Conference in San Francisco on Thursday.

“It’s about permutations of pre-existing content.”

“What you’ll see over time is a lot of litigation,” Thomson said. “Some media companies have already begun those discussions.”

“Personally, we’re not interested in that at this stage. We’re much more interested in negotiation.”
