Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Twitchy.com: “Sen. Mazie Hirono calls Trump's social media summit 'a rogues gallery of social media's leading racists'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The Senate is having a hearing on Google and censorship, less than a week after President Trump hosted his own #SocialMediaSummit at the White House to discuss such topics as de-platforming, doxing, and shadow banning with mostly (but not all) conservative content creators on social media.

The summit really got under the skin of “real journalists” like Playboy’s Brian Karem, who taunted attendees in the Rose Garden, said they were “prone to demonic possession,” and challenged guests to a fistfight, all caught on video — video we never would have seen if it had been left to the “real” journalists to cover the event.

The Daily Signal’s Rob Bluey reported that there were about 250 “digital leaders, social media influencers, and members of Congress” in attendance — or, as the New York Times called them, “right-wing social media trolls.”

During the Google hearing, Sen. Mazie Hirono of Hawaii brought up the social media summit, calling it “a rogues gallery” of “racists and conspiracy theorists.” HIRONO begins Judiciary tech bias hearing by calling claims about anti-conservative bias "baseless." — Nate Madden (@NateOnTheHill) July 16, 2019
