Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will meet with a slate of conservatives, including pundit Glenn Beck, on Wednesday to discuss the controversy over allegations that the social network’s “trending” list apparently suppresses conservative media.

Beck said he was contacted by Zuckerberg’s office over the weekend to be one of about 10 people to go to Menlo Park, California to hear the CEO “explain what happened and assure us that it won’t happen again,” he wrote on Facebook. Facebook confirmed the meeting to the Huffington Post.

“It would be interesting to look him in the eye as he explains and a win for all voices if we can come to a place of real trust with this powerful tool,” Beck added.

Last week, Zuckerberg said his team is conducting a full investigation into the alleged manipulation and would take “additional steps to address it” if any evidence was found.
