in the vicinity ofthe video Howard Kurtz: A strange White house summit mainly rips-tech giant
‘MediaBuzz’ host Howard Kurtz weighs in on President Trump, social media summit, was absent, Google, Facebook, and Twitter.
It was obvious from the beginning that the media thought a lot of Donald Trump’s social media summit.
Yesterday, in front of White-House-event name, a New York Times story, said: “The guest list has alarmed critics who fear that it brings people together, the spread of threats, hate speech and actual fake news, and sometimes have to tweet your messages with the increased speed of the President.”
That was mild compared to the times of the ” savvy tech columnist Kevin Roose, the mocked, the red – carpet treatment for the “rights trolls”, calls the guests “is a colorful grab-bag of pro-Trump-influence factors (who) met to brag to Twitter, to your invitations.”
But the President, in his morning tweets, did not exactly convey that this was a fair and balanced look at the problems of Big-Tech.
He said the purpose is to examine “the tremendous dishonesty, prejudice, discrimination and oppression practiced by certain companies. We will not let you get away with it, much more.”
He added: “The Fake-News media will also be there, but for a limited period of time.”
It is quite strange, the least to say, a summit and not allow reporters in the attention to the issue at hand. The White house later, the access to the press pool, the list but never published a guest decided. So, the event was embedded in a bit of a mystery.

So you have the established press, which is to say that POTUS is catering to traders of fake news, and Trump say, he is limiting the ability of the fake news to cover the summit. The grand fake-off kind of crystallized the complete lack of trust on both sides.
The President offered what he considered high praise, and told his guests that “the shit that you think is incredible.”
Trump complains that he is less and less engagement on his tweets, which he found suspicious. “I used to see it, like a rocket, if I were a beauty,” he said. “Remember I said someone spying on me? It was like a rocket.” (Was to be 2017 tweet that Barack had Obama listened to him, for which there is still no evidence.)
A prominent participant Sebastian Gorka, a White house press official, until he was out. As a trump, the show moved to the rose garden, where he spoke about the census and citizenship, Gorka went to the press pool and got into a high-decibel exchange with liberal CNN post Brian Karem, with Gorka called him a “punk.”
Some of the guests Gorka began to sing “!”
The theatrics hide some serious problems. It’s not that Twitter, Facebook and Google invited were not worthy of a ton of criticism. The company will lean left. Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter have recognised Jack Dorsey, this is a problem. They apply their so-called standards inconsistently, in a number of cases against the conservatives, and sometimes had to apologize for it. And they have done a lousy job of police hatred, disinformation and Russian propaganda, incite calls for state regulation.
Still, the White house, some controversial characters, as well as the press was invited too fond of it. They belong to James O’keefe, the conservative outfit makes slow to bring advertising taping of embarrassment to liberals, the well-known once a plea of guilty to a misdemeanor in a case with Mary Landrieu for entering a building under false pretenses.
They include Ali Alexander, recently tweeted that Kamala Harris had falsely imply that it came from “American Black slaves.” The biracial senator has been very open about their parents from Jamaica and India.
And you are Biden a trump follower with the screen name Carpe Donktum, who tweeted an obviously fake video of Joe’s shoulders, massaged, by a second Biden at a time, the former veep was accused of touching inappropriately women.

There is an important debate raging in the country over the Silicon Valley giant, the former “America’s most admired companies”, and whether you are biased and allowed to be your platforms, a toxic cesspool. The White house may have collected to the meeting, a few points, but mainly from one side.
