Well, CBS (for example) would source the media and provide the hash to the ledger. Then, anyone who reads it would be able check the hash, and if it matches, the source was actually CBS. Wouldn’t matter how many hands the material passsed through in the interim; if it was altered in any way, the hash wouldn’t match.

I’m no blockchain heavy tech, but I believe that’s how it would work.
