    Default Is it time to look into shutting down NBC News?

    Yeah, I know: Don't feed trolls, but . . . jeez, does everything have to be so on the nose?

    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!

    I guess this would be a little more chilling if it wasn't so stupid and empty.

    Plus, he's just a guy asking questions.

    Oh, I'm not disagreeing with you about what Trump has done to the presidency.

    When did she talk about taking licenses away?

    Every time she claimed she was deliberately lied about on the news, since existing guidelines provide for removal of your license for deliberately broadcasting lies as news.

    Your beef is with existing FCC guidelines. Not Trump for suggesting they be adhered to. Do you think broadcast licensee's should be able to deliberately broadcast lies or to deliberately slant the news, yes or no? If no, why should Trump refrain from calling for those guidelines to be adhered to if he believes it is taking place?

    Why Trump's threats are just more bluster.

    http://www.motherjones.com/politics/...s-off-the-air/

    Were Trump to try to follow through on his threat, it’s unclear how he might proceed. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is in charge of regulating communications via TV, radio, and other media. The FCC is an independent federal agency whose members are appointed to five-year terms, and the current commissioners are unlikely to carry out the president’s war with the media: The FCC’s chairman, Agit Pai, is known for having a pro-corporate agenda, not one of sinking networks by kicking them off the air. Glen Robinson, who served as an FCC commissioner in the 1970s, says he doesn’t think Pai “would be stupid enough to act on Trump’s temper tantrum.”

    If Trump somehow convinced the commissioners to act on his political vendetta, it’s not obvious how they would do it. As Politico reported, the FCC does not license networks, as Trump implies. Instead, it grants eight-year licenses to local stations. Some stations are owned by Comcast, the parent company of NBC, but much of NBC is run through local affiliates owned by other companies.

    Should the FCC decide to retaliate against every local license-holder that broadcasts NBC or another network the president is feuding with, it would run up against its own processes. The FCC allows local competitors and residents to contest license renewal applications, and the grounds for denying a renewal are narrow, requiring that the station violate FCC rules. “Comcast knows full well that the FCC will never, ever, deny its license renewal applications,” Andrew Jay Schwartzman, an expert in telecommunications law at Georgetown University Law Center, told CNN.

    She's more subtle but no less dangerous to free speech, more dangerous for her subtlety. See facebook censorship and banning of what they deem fake news.
