May 18th, 2016 8:48 PM

Media Research Center President Brent Bozell was invited to participate in Wednesday's much-anticipated meeting with the nation's top conservatives at Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, California.

This evening, he emerged from the gathering and was pleased with the conversation. Further, he was  hopeful about a restoration of trust in the future after allegations that Facebook suppressed trending conservative news topics.

Upon leaving from the meeting, he has released the following statement:

"I think this was a very productive first meeting. I think Facebook understands there is a problem. And I think that from the very top, there is a genuine desire to resolve it. There were good exchanges and overall, it was cordial. We’ll see how the investigation turns out. There has been a serious issue of trust within the conservative movement about this issue, but everyone in that room, on both sides, wants to see it restored."
