Trump just issued a direct threat to the free and independent media

President Donald Trump has said a lot of bad things about the media since he started running for president two-plus years ago. He's suggested that the press doesn't really like America. He has said the media is the "enemy of the American people." He has repeatedly called journalists the "most dishonest" people. He has worked to paint news stories he doesn't like as "fake" -- and claimed he created that term.

But he's never gone as far as he did on Wednesday morning when he tweeted this: "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!"

What Trump is suggesting here is that the Federal Communications Commission needs to examine its licensing procedures for major news networks because what they are reporting is not to his liking. The coverage isn't positive enough for Trump, so he wants some sort of punitive action doled out.

This one is for you Admin. You sticky your thing about all bad coverage of Trump is "fake news", but you can't hide from his authoritarian tweets. Sorry.

Just recently Trump threatened to use federal tax law to penalize the National Football League.

No man, Queshank made me see the light. It's all part of the master mind control plan as explained by Trump high priest Scott Adams. Trump is a GENIUS. He has everyone in the palm of his hand.

It is too bad that so many people are just now getting concerned about authoritarians threatening to infringe on the freedom of the press.

So much progress could have been made if people had been more concerned all along.  Like when the FCC wanted to regulate media outlets or the whole push for "net neutrality" and "the fairness doctrine".

He thinks that being president is like being a dictator.  No one will pay this any mind.  He is an idiot.

The 'push' (as you say) is to keep the Internet as it is.  Net Neutrality is the attempt to secure a free open Internet before Republicans can sell it off.

Happy to help.

It's so ironic to hear this complaint, because suppression of free speech is in the warp an woof of the left wing.  They've repeatedly tried to enact the "Fairness Doctrine" to erase conservative media from radio.
