Sports Illustrated and TheStreet were found to have been publishing AI-generated content attributed to fake authors.

The content included bogus biographies and headshots, with the AI-generated nature of the articles confirmed by sources.

After the report was published, the AI-generated authors disappeared from Sports Illustrated’s site, and the magazine’s website eventually added a disclaimer about the content’s origin. (Trending: Donald Trump Confronts Bud Light CEO.)

Futurism’s anonymous source said, “The content is absolutely AI-generated.”

“No matter how much they say that it’s not,” added the whistleblower.

“There’s a lot,” confirmed another insider.

“I was like, what are they? This is ridiculous. This person does not exist,” they continued.

Adding, “At the bottom [of the page] there would be a photo of a person and some fake description of them like, ‘Oh, John lives in Houston, Texas. He loves yard games and hanging out with his dog, Sam.’ Stuff like that. It’s just crazy.”

Sports Illustrated issued a statement that said, “We, the workers of the SI Union, are horrified by a story on the site Futurism, reporting that Sports Illustrated’s parent company, The Arena Group, has published AI-generated content under SI’s brand with fabricated bylines and writer profiles.”

“If true, these practices violate everything we believe in about journalism,” added the sports giant.

“We deplore being associated with something so disrespectful to our readers,” read the statement.

“We demand answers and transparency from Arena Group management about what exactly has been published under the SI name. We demand the company commit to adhering to basic journalistic standards, including not publishing computer-written stories by fake people,” declared the press release.

This revelation has raised concerns about the use of AI-generated content in media and has led to calls for transparency and adherence to journalistic standards.
