The Trump Feud with NBC's "news" division.... heats up
comments and news VIDEO from net, Posted in News Media
[NEWSMAX] -- President Donald Trump renewed his feud with NBC News, and raised questions about challenging the "license" of that network....
(Editor's note --- there is no licensing system for networks. Only for their owned and operated stations)
The presidential tweets follow an NBC News report that claimed Trump had sought what amounted to a nearly tenfold increase in the U.S. nuclear arsenal during a summer meeting with national security leaders.
Trump on Wedneday blasted a new NBC News story claiming he had called for a tenfold increase in the U.S. nuclear arsenal. He writes on Twitter that with all the "Fake News" coming out of "NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License?"
The Federal Communications Commission mandates licenses for individual radio and television stations, but not for a content feeding program network.
Trump already had been pushing back against an earlier NBC News claim that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson considered resigning during the summer and that Tillerson had called Trump a "moron."
