Donald Trump threatens to shut down NBC and other TV news networks that criticise him


Quote:Donald Trump has threatened to shut down NBC and other American networks, saying that they peddle fake news.

"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!" Mr Trump wrote in a tweet.

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 stead reduction of the US nuclear arsenal since the 1960s. The story cited three officials who were reportedly in the room when Mr Trump made the comments.

"Fake @NBCNews made up a story that I wanted a 'tenfold' increase in our US nuclear arsenal," Mr Trump had tweeted before his threat. "Pure fiction, mad eup to demean. NBC = CNN!"

The President has regularly targeted news networks critical of him since January, when he gave a press conference as President-elect and shouted down a CNN reporter as "fake news". The term - which Mr Trump says he invented but had been used frequently before to describe the proliferation of stories written by anonymous bloggers to spread lies during the 2016 election - has since become one of his go-to insults when the media publishes critical coverage of the Trump administration.

The report about Mr Trump's nuclear arsenal said that the joint chiefs of staff and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson all pushed back on the nuclear ambitions, and that Mr Tillerson later called the President a "moron" following the meeting. 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. 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.

Strange. I could've sworn there was another President, a darker President, who threatened to shut down a network who criticized him repeatedly.

Eh, probably just my imagination. It's obvious this is the first time a President has done such a thing.

Hahaha... I love this!

Quote:Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.


After 8 years of radical leftists doing everything they could to silence objection, we get to see what happens when the shoe's on the other foot.

Mess with the 1st Amendment? No. Unacceptable.

Clarify what qualifies as "the press"? Definitely needs to happen. I recall BHO wanting to shut out one network in particular. Leftists fell all over themselves with salivating giddiness.

The courts constantly make decisions clarify meanings of terms.

I recall one such recent example: the redefinition of the concept of marriage.

If the meaning of one sacred, traditional institution can be clarified, then why would anyone have a problem with getting clarification of another time-honored institution?

First, President Trump tricked the alt-left in standing (err.. kneeling) with the disrespect of the American flag, our servicemen and women, and first responders.

Now he'll trick them in standing with the fake news media and their horrific (dis-)approval ratings.

Brilliant.
