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

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".

Mr Tillerson last week refused to confirm that he had called the President that, and Mr Trump has said that those reports are fake news.

In his earlier tweet, the President had asked, albeit rhetorically, when it was appropriate to start challenging news outlets' licenses. "Bad for country!" he added in another tweet.

Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska voiced his concerns by explicitly asking Trump if he had abandoned his oath to protect and defend the Constitution. Either force him out of office, or wait till we get enough evidence and go ahead with impeachment proceedings, because this behavior that he is exhibiting here, threatening media outlets, pretending that he's some sort of authoritarian dictator, this is not acceptable in the United States and something has to be done to remove this man from power.


Responding to Mr Trump's musing about revoking licenses for broadcast networks critical of him, former USA federal prosecutor and frequent Trump critic Preet Bharara called the President childish. My money wouldn't be on the president who seems ignorant about the First Amendment, basic U.S. History, or that Puerto Ricans are U.S. taxpayers deserving of full U.S disaster relief support. Schatz. "In 1974, President Nixon and his top aides discussed using the FCC's license renewal process to punish the Washington Post for its Watergate coverage".

Bloomberg News reports that defending the licenses cost the Washington Post more than $1 million and took over 2 years.

The tweet capped off a day of attacks lodged at the media. Corker said Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, Chief of Staff John Kelly and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson "help separate our country from chaos".
