How we made this:

GPT-3 wrote text from prompts based on the 36 original headlines, along with additional fact boxes from related phrases. DALL·E 2 produced images using a similar process. The fake ads use AI-generated photos and slogans. New York weather data for the year 2001 was sourced from Visual Crossing Weather.
