President Obama to hold second meeting with Internet companies

updated 10:30 am EDT, Fri March 21, 2014

Meeting scheduled for 4PM, no specific attendees known

President Obama is slated to meet with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and undisclosed tech company executives later today, according to the White House schedule. On the agenda are further discussions with the executives about recent NSA revelations, and a continuation of the president's "dialogue with them on the issues of privacy, technology, and intelligence."

Google, Facebook, Yahoo, and Apple CEOs were all invited to the meeting, but it is unclear who will attend other than Zuckerberg. Zuckerberg wrote last week that he believed that the US should be the "champion for the Internet, not a threat." The executive believes that the US needs to "be much more transparent about what they're doing, or otherwise people will believe the worst."

The meeting is scheduled for 4:05PM EST. No press are invited to the event, which will be held in the oval office.
