CNET financial articles

Post by squirrel1963 »

It seems that CNET has been using AI automation to write some articles on finance: ... 26432.html

CNET claims that the writings are "fact checked" by the staff for accuracy before publishing and that's the part that bothers me because it's unknown to me how knowledgeable this staff actually is about finance.

This, coupled with the fact that ChatGPT makes some glaring errors in explaining TIPS (see thread viewtopic.php?t=394553), makes me deeply suspicious of this kind of approach, and I'd caution Bogleheads about relying on financial writings done by AI, whether it's "fact checked" or not.
