Mark Zuckerberg Speaks Out: Denies Censorship Allegations, Wants to Meet 'Conservatives'
And I quote...

This isn't the first time we've heard about an internal investigation showing Facebook has done nothing wrong. Which is what their executive in charge of trending topics - who is also a maxed out Hillary Clinton donor - said as well.
But let's look at this part: In the coming weeks, I'll also be inviting leading conservatives and people from across the political spectrum to talk with me about this and share their points of view. I want to have a direct conversation about what Facebook stands for and how we can be sure our platform stays as open as possible.
How about with the one person who's filed a legal motion/petition? Naaah. Best to duck and handpick "conservatives." Perhaps such glowing monuments of conservatism like Lindsey Graham.
Look, we've said this before, we'll say it again. Facebook can censor whomever they choose to censor. They're a business, they have that right. What Louder with Crowder is doing isn't complaining about their censorship. Read the full details of the legal motion. For us, it's more about business and transparency. When money exchanges hands, a certain level of trust is kind of expected. Call us crazy.
But it's cute how Mark here is all "I want to understand what's up." Okay, here's what's up: leftists are always seeking to silence and censor conservative ideas. Why? Because conservatism is ideas. It is based in thought, rationality, logic. Leftism, by contrast, is based on feelings. When thought battles feelings, guess which one eventually wins out? Which, by the way, pro-tip? If you're debating a leftist with accusations or statements, you're doing it wrong. Always ask questions. "Why do you believe X?" or "What do you think will happen if we implement X?" Leftists react on gut feelings. They're reactive. Thought isn't engaged until you, the conservative, engage it.
Just, you know, some advice for anyone who might have a sit down with Mark here.
Also, if Facebook is censoring conservatives, but doubling down and denying it, that's not going to build trust and goodwill with its users, who use the platform for all things news, social, and memeness. Just saying.
