The alternative rock band Imagine Dragons said Thursday that it asked the Conservative Political Action Conference to stop using its music in promotions.
The controversial Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos was disinvited from the Conservative Political Action Conference after a video surfaced of Milo condoning pedophilia on Monday.
The group in charge of the Conservative Political Action Conference announced Monday that its team would not meet with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to discuss the social media site’s reported censoring of conservative viewpoints.
