Following allegations that Facebook is burying conservative news, Glenn Beck says he will be meeting with Mark Zuckerberg to discuss the issue. Zuck had said he planned to reach out to conservative leaders, even though there's currently "no evidence" Facebook really is burying anything. In a Facebook post Sunday, Beck said that the Facebook CEO's office contacted him—"Mark wanted to meet with 8 or ten of us to explain what happened and assure us that it won't happen again"—and that, as long as he can rearrange his schedule, he'll be attending the meeting in Menlo Park on Wednesday.

"How does a company who allowed voices to be heard in Iran and Egypt which sparked revolution silence voices of anyone here?" Beck continued. "The question that needs to be answered Wednesday is: Will Mark see this as an opportunity to free all points of view but at the same time unify America and the world." A Facebook spokesperson confirms the Wednesday meeting to CNN, adding that invitations were also extended to Fox News host Dana Perino and Zac Moffatt, Mitt Romney's former digital director.
