An odd gathering of right wing grifters will be hosted at The White House today to talk about “social media bias” and how to fight back, but what’s really going to happen is that all of the groups and people gathered are going to be given their marching orders to help support Trump. The guest list is about as disgusting as it gets, and even some conservative lawmakers will be getting in on the action. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.

Donald Trump is hosting his right wing online media propaganda summit today at the White House under the guise of, we've got to make sure that social media works for everybody, and as Matt Gaetz says, make sure these social media companies aren't putting their thumbs on the scales. Matt Gaetz is also one of the people who's going to be attending this little propaganda summit taking place at the White House. Now, before we get into the details of this, let's remember that this is not without precedent. Okay? Uh, many years ago, back when George W. Bush was in office, he actually held a gathering in the White House with Fox News personalities and other right wing talking heads.
Part of that was to get everybody on the same message, go out there and disseminate the same talking points. This is just the latest evolution of that. Obviously, Fox News is not the only conservative voice out there. Neither is conservative talk radio. You have all these groups online, and so Donald Trump is tapping into that. This is not unprecedented, and unfortunately, there's nothing illegal about it. He's allowed to do this, but here's the kicker. They're doing this onto the guys again of making sure that conservatives are not being censored on social media because dammit, things are so unfair for those folks. Matt Gaetz, again attending the meeting always claims that he being shadow banned because not enough people are liking and retweeting his tweets.
This is not about censorship. If it were, he would have invited people from Facebook, Twitter, and Google to attend the meeting. Instead, all he wants to do is tweet out nasty things about those groups and not let them come and be a part of the conversation and explain why some of this may be happening, which for the record happening to progressives and liberals as well, but nonetheless the people attending this, these are not people who are interested in going there and talking about how do we make things better online. Let's for a brief second look at some of the folks on this guest list. As I already mentioned, Matt Gaetz is going to be there. Prager U has been invited, Project Veritas, James O'Keefe will be there; The Heritage Foundation. They're not even a social media group. They actually are just a group that basically comes up with talking points for right wingers and right wing politicians.
