President Donald Trump is hosting his White House Social Media Summit today, an invitation-only event billed by the president as addressing the subject of “the tremendous dishonesty, bias, discrimination and suppression practiced by certain companies.” Those companies are assumed to be Big Tech — Alphabet (which owns Google and YouTube), Facebook, and Twitter — all of whom many conservatives and other non-mainstream news organizations have called out for anti-free-speech censorship practices.

The list of invites includes social-media personalities such as citizen-journalist Tim Pool, Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe, and Turning Point USA leader Charlie Kirk, as well as representatives from organizations like Prager University, Media Research Center, The Heritage Foundation, and several others.

In what has become standard practice, Leftmedia activists masquerading as journalists reported on the story by labeling the list of invitees as nothing but a bunch of “right-wing extremists,” “conspiracy theorists,” and “far-right agitators.” No wonder so many Americans are sympathetic to Trump’s calling the mainstream media what it is: “fake news.”

The fact of the matter is that mounting evidence supporting the accusation that Big Tech is intentionally censoring conservative content is undeniable. However, in the same way that the MSM has claimed its own reporting is not impacted by bias, both the media and the tech companies assert that the charges of censorship are little more than the hyperbolic rambling of right-wing conspiracy theorists. MSM pontificators see themselves as the only legitimate arbiters of “news” and “journalism” and are loathe to acknowledge the legitimacy of any new media citizen-journalist whose reporting and viewpoints don’t comport with their own leftist worldview. Thus, the very fact that Trump would deign to take seriously and listen to the complaints of censorship voiced by various members of the new media induces only scorn and ridicule from the mainstream press.

Fortunately, Trump is not beholden to the whims of the mainstream-media establishment. Indeed, he relishes calling out the Leftmedia over its biased “fake news.” It will be interesting to see what comes of this summit today, although it is unlikely that any immediate action would be expected.
