Sen. Schatz on Trump's Threat to NBC

But on Friday, Trump retweeted former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly, who pointed out that "The President will not be able to impact licenses" of news companies.

"Network news has become so partisan, distorted and fake that licenses must be challenged and, if appropriate, revoked". Trump, speaking hours after he tweeted about challenging the licenses of "NBC and the networks" for producing "fake news", said he was calling for more honesty, not limits on the media, but he later doubled down on his threat to challenge licenses, Bloomberg reports.

Trump was angered that NBC News reported that in a July meeting he had inquired about increasing the nation's nuclear arsenal tenfold.

Mr Trump's tweet came in response to a story written by NBC, which said that Mr Trump had sought to increase America's nuclear arsenal tenfold after taking a look at a briefing slide that showed steady reduction of the U.S. nuclear arsenal since the 1960s.

"The FCC is responsible for maintaining broadcast licenses, and I call on Chairman Pai to immediately reject and repudiate the President's disturbing threat - and to do so in no uncertain terms".

"Mr. President: Words spoken by the President of the United States matter".

As various folks were pointing out after his initial tweet tirade, networks are not licensed by the FCC, though owned TV stations are. The federal government is not allowed to interfere with what the media reports.

Trump himself has attacked the network over the report on Twitter.

The National Association of Broadcasters said Trump taking retaliatory regulatory action against NBC and other networks violates the Constitution's protection of freedom of the press, established in the First Amendment.
