MRC's Brent Bozell Meets Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg Over Bias Questions

May 18th, 2016 10:57 AM

Later today, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell will join other top conservatives in a meeting with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to discuss last week's Gizmodo report that Facebook quashed trending conservative news items.

Going into the meeting, Bozell issued the following statement:

“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. 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.”

Zuckerberg said last week he would be "inviting leading conservatives and people from across the political spectrum to talk with me” about the controversy. Facebook denies there was political manipulation of their trending topics, and Zuckerman insisted he wanted an open platform for discussion.
