Sen. Schatz on Trump's Threat to NBC


The Federal Communications Commission doesn't directly license networks, meaning it would be impossible for Trump to carry out the threat, Politico notes. Specifically, one of the things that he's so angry about are the reports about Tillerson calling him a moron, Bob Corker saying that Trump could march us into World War III, and a couple other really inflammatory, but as far as we know true, stories that have come out in the last few days.

Responding to Mr Trump's musing about revoking licenses for broadcast networks critical of him, former United States federal prosecutor and frequent Trump critic Preet Bharara called the President childish.

"I am both shocked and disappointed that President Trump today suggested the revocation of a major network's broadcast license because he doesn't like the negative light in which he has been portrayed in their newscasts".

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. During its coverage of the Watergate scandal, President Richard Nixon tried to do the same with the Washington Post Co. And cable news outlets need no license. Corker said Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, Chief of Staff John Kelly and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson "help separate our country from chaos".

The Radio-Television Digital News Association's Voice of the First Amendment Task Force has condemned the threats and the tweet they rode in on.
