‘Fake news less important than social media,’ says Trump ahead of WH social media summit

In anticipation of the White House’s social media summit, where online personalities will gather to discuss censorship on the web, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to put tech companies and the ‘Fake News Media’ on blast. The summit will host a number of social media stars, many of them in the pro-Trump orbit, on Thursday afternoon, and will address the “tremendous dishonesty, bias, discrimination and suppression” practiced by social media companies, according to the president. “We will not let them get away with it much longer,” President Trump tweeted Thursday morning. “The Fake News Media will also be there, but for a limited period. The Fake News is not as important, or as powerful, as Social Media. They have lost tremendous credibility.” The president later deleted and revised his morning tweet storm. While no guestlist has been published, some of the invitees are known, among them Twitter memesmith ‘Carpe Donktum’, prominent pro-Trumper Bill Mitchell, right-wing journalist Jim Hoft, as well as other conservative organizations such as Turning Point USA and PragerU.Also on White House disinvites author of ‘anti-Semitic’ Soros cartoon from social media summitPolitical cartoonist Ben Garrison was initially expected to attend, but his invitation was rescinded after critics in the media circulated a cartoon he drew depicting billionaire financier George Soros as a puppet master, ...Read more
