Meanwhile, both the tech giants have rejected Pelosi's plea after stating that the doctored video did not violate any policy especially when she had actually torn the US President's speech after his address. The fact of the matter is that Pelosi did tear the pages of her copy of the speech but only after it was finished, and not throughout the address as the video depicts.
