Science&Tech Zuckerberg acknowledges mistakes in manipulated video 'drunk' Pelosi By WeeklyNews staff Posted on June 30, 2019 1 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Facebook CEO Zuckerberg acknowledges that his company has intervened too late with a manipulated video of Democratic leader Pelosi. At a conference in Colorado, he spoke of "a mistake in our execution". Her voice was delayed in Pelosi's video, making it look like she had been drinking. YouTube removed the video from its platform, but Facebook refused. However, the video was given a lower priority, which should reduce the range. Pelosi, the president of the House of Representatives, ruled over Facebook on the issue. Zuckerberg now says that their system recognized the video too late as a fake, and that he got more exposure than he should have. The company wants to develop a policy for such manipulated videos in the coming period. In protest against Facebook's refusal to remove the video, a manipulated video by Zuckerberg on Instagram, of which Facebook is the owner, appeared not much later. That video was also not taken off the platform.
