Implications for News Organizations: While the potential benefits of such a tool are vast, questions arise about the role of human journalists and the future of journalism.

AI in journalism also raises concerns about the credibility of information. "If this technology can deliver factual information reliably, journalists should use the tool. If, on the other hand, it is misused by journalists and news organizations on topics that require nuance and cultural understanding, then it could damage the credibility not only of the tool but of the news organizations that use it,” said Jeff Jarvis, a journalism professor and media commentator.
