Trump Suggests Challenging Broadcast TV Licenses Over 'Fake News'

Written by  Susan Jones

(CNSNews.com) - Angered by "all of the Fake News coming out of NBC" and other networks, President Trump asked on Wednesday, "at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License?" Trump was responding to an NBC "exclusive" report, which said that Trump asked for a huge increase in U.S.

nuclear weapons at a July meeting with military leaders and top advisers at the Pentagon. "Fake @NBCNews made up a story that I wanted a 'tenfold' increase in our U.S. nuclear arsenal. Pure fiction, made up to demean. NBC = CNN!" Trump tweeted Wednesday morning. "With all of the Fake News coming out of NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License? Bad for country!" he added in a second tweet. Broadcast television networks are licensed by the Federal Communications Commission, but cable stations are not. Over-the-air stations are required by the FCC to operate in the public interest, and license renewals can be challenged by anyone who wants to make a case against station operations.

Trump is a frequent critic of the media in general, branding many negative reports about him as "fake news."

That would or should wake these MORONS of the MEDIA up but then again they supported Hitlery which means they too STUPID for anyone's good and should be removed from the world. Give their sort to some actual reporters since Journalist is just a polite way of saying LIAR. Strip them all of their licenses and give them only to those who will report the facts and not their opinion as News. This would do America a great service since we would not have to listen to a bunch egomaniacs telling people what the politician just said when heard it firsthand from the politician who said it. I get sick of the BLOWHARDS who claim they speak for the politician even when they say the exact opposite of what the politician just said themselves. I also hate them saying someone won an election when only a very small amount of votes have actually been counted. This should have been stopped when Bush defeated Gore and Williams and Brokaw cried like little girls who have lost their favorite doll when they had to Announce Bush won after more votes were actually counted than the 1 to 2% They used to say Gore won a state. By forcing them to fire all the journalists and hire reporters America might start believing what they say. Now America knows that the TRUTH is exactly opposite what the Journalist says it is.
