Later today, Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg will meet with prominent media conservatives including Glenn Beck, S.E. Cupp and Dana Perino to talk about suggestions the social network suppresses conservative content.
“I look forward to sitting down with Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook because, as I’ll explain to them, no one knows more about liberal bias in the media than we do,” said Media Research Center president Brent Bozell, who will attend the meeting. “We have been documenting and exposing it for almost 30 years. Facebook has a serious problem. Trust is everything and now conservatives don’t trust them. My hope is that today’s meeting will begin to put concerns to rest.”
“I’m going in there with an open mind and some curiosity,” Perino told The Wrap. “If I make one point, the bigger-picture problem across the board is that Silicon Valley as a whole is a great champion of diversity, but usually when they talk about diversity, they mean gender and race. Diversity of thought is also very valuable.”
