Trump Threatens Licenses of 'Disgusting' News Networks

Trump Threatens Licenses of 'Disgusting' News Networks

After a succession of tweets making not-so-veiled threats to "challenge" the broadcast licenses of TV news organizations, one of the Federal Communications Commission's commissioners schooled President Donald J. Trump that is "not how it works".

The National Association of Broadcasters called it "contrary" to the Constitution for the president to suggest NBC's license be taken away.

"With all of the Fake News coming out of NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License? Not fair to public!"

Mr Trump's tweet came in response to a story written by NBC, which said that Mr Trump had sought to increase America's nuclear arsenal tenfold after taking a look at a briefing slide that showed steady reduction of the United States nuclear arsenal since the 1960s.




During an interview, the President also said that he would have to compare IQ scores with Mr Tillerson if his secretary had actually made the remarks.

Moments later Trump retweeted another O'Reilly message, this time explicitly addressing his threat to revoke the "license" of what he perceives to be corrupt, politically motivated media outlets.

"Of all the threats to the company during Watergate - the attempts to undermine our credibility, the petty slights, and favoring of the competition - the most effective were the challenges to the licenses of our two Florida television stations", Graham later recounted in he memoir.

For the last day, day and a half or so, Donald Trump has been on Twitter threatening media outlets that are critical of his presidency and of him personally. Corker said Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, Chief of Staff John Kelly and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson "help separate our country from chaos". Trump tweeted on Wednesday in what many considered an open attack on the First Amendment.
