The Oversight Board of Meta, the parent company of Facebook, has stated that a video on the platform that was manipulated to make it appear as if President Joe Biden behaved inappropriately toward women can stay on the platform due to a problematic loophole in Meta's policies. The board believes that this loophole poses a threat to elections globally and should be closed as soon as possible. The video in question showed Biden placing an "I Voted" sticker on his adult granddaughter's chest, but it had been edited to create the false impression that he touched her chest repeatedly and inappropriately. Meta's manipulated media policy only applies to videos altered by artificial intelligence to make it seem like someone said something they didn't, and it does not apply to manipulated audio. Because the actions portrayed in the video were actually done by Biden, albeit heavily edited, the video was allowed to remain on the platform. The Oversight Board criticized Meta's policy as being too narrow and called for greater clarity and revisions, especially with the upcoming elections in 2024. The Biden campaign called Meta's policy nonsensical and dangerous. This recommendation comes after Meta faced criticism in the past for not removing a manipulated video of Nancy Pelosi, and the company is now reviewing the Oversight Board's feedback.
