Luján Calls On FCC To Reject Threat To Revoke NBC's Broadcast License

The Federal Communications Commission doesn't directly license networks, meaning it would be impossible for Trump to carry out the threat, Politico notes. Trump, Tillerson, and other administration figures reported to have been present at the meeting have refuted the allegation over a dozen times.

The National Association of Broadcasters said Trump taking retaliatory regulatory action against NBC and other networks violates the Constitution's protection of freedom of the press, established in the First Amendment. "Not fair to public!"

This week President Trump, the country's thin-skinned media critic in chief, took his "fake news" bashing to an outrageous and ominous new level. News later followed up with a report that Tillerson called Trump a "moron" following a meeting at which Trump said he wanted to significantly build up the US nuclear arsenal. Nixon was unhappy with the Washington Post Company and how they were going after his presidency, and they did a damn good job of it, so he made a decision to have his little acolytes go out there in places like Jacksonville, Florida and Miami, Florida and attempt to get the local news stations there pulled off the air because they were owned by the Washington Post Company.

"Mr. President: Words spoken by the President of the United States matter", the Republican senator wrote in a statement. And cable news outlets need no license.

"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.
