Conservative media mogul Glenn Beck will meet with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg next week amid reports that the social media site has omitted conservative topics from its trending list. 

{mosads}A Gizmodo report last week claimed contractors who worked as “curators” for Facebook’s trending topics section regularly didn’t include stories trending among political conservatives. 

Zuckerberg said there’s “no evidence” supporting the accusations, but the company will investigate the matter. 

“How does a company who allowed voices to be heard in Iran and Egypt which sparked revolution silence voices of anyone here?” Beck wrote on his Facebook Sunday morning. “Mark wanted to meet with 8 or ten of us to explain what happened and assure us that it won’t happen again.

“It would be interesting to look him in the eye as he explains and a win for all voices if we can come to a place of real trust with this powerful tool,” he continued.

Beck went on to say Facebook must be “unbiased as the telephone,” otherwise it will “fracture or fall apart over time due to competitors who will carve out their own place without agenda.

“Facebook truly is the only communal experience we now have in some ways. We need to see what ‘the other side’ is talking about,” Beck wrote.
