Trump Threatens To Revoke Broadcast Licenses Of Networks That Criticize Him

President Trump Attack NBC News Over Nuclear Report

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 USA nuclear arsenal since the 1960s. Is this how democracy dies?

President Donald Trump appeared on Friday morning to admit that - despite his crusade against what he characterizes as "fake news" - he really can't do much about it.

Specifically, Donald Trump seems to be targeting NBC and has threatened to revoke their license to broadcast here in the United States, because according to Donald Trump, they're doing nothing but putting out fake news and trying to demean and denigrate Trump himself and other members of his Cabinet. News reported early Wednesday that Trump pushed back in July for a major expansion of the us nuclear arsenal.

Recon Analytics analyst Roger Entner called the market response a "short-term irrational knee-jerk reaction" and said Trump faced essentially insurmountable hurdles to getting licenses pulled. Now, there's two issues with this.

The FCC has said the First Amendment "expressly prohibits the commission from censoring broadcast matter" and that its role "in overseeing program content is very limited".

It is an independent agency in the federal government. Ben Sasse, a frequent critic of Trump, said, "Mr. President: Are you recanting of the Oath you took on January 20 to preserve, protect, and defend the 1st Amendment?" Sen. He raised the idea of challenging NBC's broadcast license. Wednesday morning, after NBC News reported that Trump had alarmed members of his administration by requesting a tenfold increase in the USA nuclear arsenal - which he categorically denied as "pure fiction" and "fake news" - he had tweeted that it may be "appropriate" to challenge network news licenses.

In the early 1970s, then-President Richard Nixon and his top aides discussed using the FCC's license renewal process as a way of punishing the Washington Post for its coverage of the Watergate burglary that ultimately brought down his presidency.
