( – “Facebook has a serious problem,” said Brent Bozell, president of the Media Research Center (MRC), prior to attending a meeting with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg along other conservative leaders over allegations that the social media site blocked conservative content from its “Trending Topics” list.

“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,” Bozell said in a statement on Wednesday. “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,” Bozell said.

In a May 12 Facebook post, Zuckerberg stated that “we have found no evidence” that the allegations are true, but added that “I’ll 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….

“The reason I care so much about this is that it gets to the core of everything Facebook is and everything I want it to be,” Zuckerberg said.
