This morning on twitter the President tweeted out what he may do to NBC if they continue to publish ‘fake news.’
The Hill is reporting that the President tweeted this out in response to an NBC news report:
President Trump on Wednesday forcefully denied an NBC News report that he asked to dramatically expand the U.S. nuclear arsenal and suggested he might pull the network’s broadcasting license.
The news network on Wednesday reported the president’s request, which it said shocked top military brass and senior administration officials.
The request was what reportedly led Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to call Trump a “moron.” A State Department spokesperson later denied Tillerson used that word to insult Trump.
A 2008 commission document states that the First Amendment “protects broadcasts that criticize or ridicule established customs and institutions, including the government and its officials.”
It also said the FCC “generally will not intervene” in “allegations that stations have aired inaccurate or one-sided news reports or comments.”
Of course one would be that this is the President just pressing the press buttons. Do you think the President is serious? Or is he just trying to get a rise out of the media?
