we talk about the plans in the pipeline. now to our lead. mark circa big met with conservative leaders to address concerns over a bias in the company's trending topic section. wasg those in attendance glenn beck, barry bennett and former white house press secretary. saying he facebook wanted to hear these concerns personally about how we can build trust. toant to do everything i can uphold the integrity of our product. it seems have located some of the concerns. in a post on his website, glenn beck said the overall tenor to me is of the salem witch trials. joining me now to discuss is someone who attended that author brookes.
gentlemen, thank you both for joining us. start with you. how would you describe the overall tenor of the meeting? >> it was a good constructive meeting. the senior leadership was there. they are worried about trust. people might be worried about being underrepresented on their platforms. they wanted to know what we were thinking. they told some of the things that they were doing to fix it. we got some feedback. and it was very good. would you say that mark zuckerberg admitted that there was bias? no. they have an investigation that is ongoing.
it is implausible that there is some sort of conspiracy going on. what he say that? >> conspiracies are hard to pull off. there are a hundred 60 million facebook users in the united states. having people inside the company or leadership that we are trying to bid. pretty that idea for business. i don't think anybody in the room about that. 89.6% of facebook employees are liberal. does that matter? don't think so. facebook is a reflection of both and the silicon
employees that work there. what i think that is really interesting is that it is moving us closer to that line where facebook is acknowledging that they have influence over us in very subtle ways. it sounds like they reiterated that today. did the knowledge that? did they say that they understood? >> they talked about trust. trust matters. disseminatest information that -- without editorializing. you don't want to identify it with one particular point of view. does it matter that they are --
it is kind of an interesting question. i believe that i could represent liberal point of view as well as conservative. it would be a good idea they had more different points of view in the room. zuckerberg andrk sheryl sandberg could use this as a major opportunity for this to be a forward leaning kind of company. >> there seems to be some tension here in that facebook is an independent organization and that the conservative party should say that the government should never interfere so what do you want from facebook? >> i don't know what i particularly want. they were asking my opinion.
it's not that i was going to facebook with some set of demands. i want a free enterprise. that is the job of capitalism. iey wanted to know what thought to make the situation go from what it is now two and. that's why i was there. >> what do you think that they can do? this is a big idea. it is a big entrepreneurial thing to do. if you have a company in silicon valley that it is the left wing place.a nonreligious people are not all like that and maybe this is a good opportunity to build that community.
maybe this would be naturally avoided? trump has more like sent any other presidential candidate and also fox news gets more interactions than any other news outlet. i would not have thought there was any bias here. facebook is going to position to use their technology to show that. could show there is a systematic bias. i am curious, do they talk about that? will they be able to rebut that? the trending topics algorithm is a very new thing. it is very small compared to the newsfeed. it is something that they are trying to get right.
iny are extremely interested doing that. we are to see some actual positive changes. cultural solutions are going to have to come along too. author brookes, president of enterprise institute. thank you for joining us. >> thank you, emily. >> another story is apple ceo tim coke's trip to india. apple says the venture will create about 4000 jobs. started to already set up an app development center in bangalore. this is not been made available. he will meet with the prime minister later on.

this is a bit of a safe haven. security,e world of there are always trade-offs. it is cyber threats. has said that those cyber threats is threat number one. you really have to be careful for legitimate reasons to do something that is actually going to make it successful. my bottom line is the government can do this. i don't think it is a good idea. use that in the past that we are headed to a world of unbreakable security.
i'm wondering do you believe that there won't be actors out there that will be able to break into things. >> what i meant was we all have to embrace in the security community the reality. nomatter what lobby we pass, matter what court judgment we get, it is going to come increasingly difficult to understand the concept of communication. it is inevitable. rather than try to slow the onislation, we need to get with our lives in terms of still doing our jobs. here is i'mmake
arguing for security here. lot of digital exhaust out there. actionableeate information. >> is that they are ramping up of cyber war on isis. what is going on behind the scenes? >> i like the fact that we are saying we are at a cyber war with isis. i have worked my entire life in government. now we have the secretary of defense and director of national intelligence publicly announcing that we are taking offensive cyber action against the islamic state. i celebrate the action and i celebrate the announced. details, i am the

dyson does. our engineers get frustrated about things and want to solve a problem. if we develop different motives, we have done the same with bathroom cleaners. angie: what else are you spending your research and develop men on? >> we're in the midst of lossing dyson 360.g it is a new vacuum cleaner. it is connected. vacation, youn can tell it to clean while you are not even home.
we have 2000 engineers. there is enough frustrating things in the world that maybe we can find a solution. why did it take so long to radiant -- redesigned the hairdryer. if you really want to come up with different technology, you have to take a foundational approach. spenteloped a motor and $70 million only to make a better hairdryer. it is very small. that, you can create a difference appliance.
