Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg met with conservatives on Wednesday, to discuss claims that its “trending topics” feature is biased against their viewpoints. The Wednesday meeting included American Enterprise Institute president Arthur Brooks, Tea Party Patriots CEO Jenny Beth Martin and also Brent Bozell, president of the Media Research Center, which says its “sole mission is to expose and neutralize the propaganda arm of the Left: the national news media.” Zuckerberg invited the dozen or so conservatives after a report in the tech blog Gizmodo claimed that Facebook downplays conservative news subjects on its trending feature.
