yeah, we got it.


Sure about that?


Fits perfectly to what NBC did.


As in not knowingly printing/broadcasting something false. Glad you came around, UK.

Which two?
I don't know.


Oh, and no retraction.
Nope. No retraction.


Fairly obvious they are lying
Not really. Not if you read the story.


You only need look at the headline for that.
Yeah. I hear Trump has a short attention span.

Of course they knowingly lied, and the lack of retraction or apology underlines it.

Regardless, at this stage THAT IS THE CHARGE.
If the FCC decided to investigate and found NBC to be lying they could revoke the licence - and the 1st Amendment would not protect them.

Pretty easy to understand.

Trump apologizes never and retracts nothing. Does that underline his knowing lies?
Just curious.

you all should give this a read
Foriegn Propaganda and Disinformation Act

it was passed last year and does give the govt an overarching umbrella to control, alter, or block any and all information they deem to go against the countries interests. that pretty much covers anything they could ever want it just requires them to label it as such. so the last admin passed a few bills like this that all play together and give them absolute control over any information which begs the question, how does this not infringe on our right to free speech in america

We already know about Trump. He is not subject to FCC rules.

Press freedom means the news media are not subject to censorship by the government. In other words, the government does not have the right to try to control or block certain things from being published by the press. This also includes "Prior Restraint". But it does not protect them from spewing propaganda, does it?

Did Trump say he would, or direct someone else to revoke them? Is he wrong to ask for fair and honest reporting? Has he said that if they don't he would punish them? Obviously the TDS suffering spoon fed masses will look at this as "Orange Hitler is coming to get me!"

Fake outrage from the left, who had no problem with Obama going after Fox News.

Trump's veiled threat may contribute to the increasingly chilly atmosphere journalists in the U.S. are working under during his administration. But his threat is essentially toothless.

First of all, there is no single license for NBC or any other national television network. Licenses are granted to individual local stations -- and NBC doesn't even own most of the stations that broadcast its content across the country. And it is extremely unusual for any station's license to be taken away for any reason, much less for a political vendetta.

No. NBC is not licensed.
The stations which broadcast it are. NBC owns a few. Others own others. Others are NBC affiliates.

Given it was their lie that brought the response, it's fairly obvious that is who Trump is referring to. Not NBCUniversal (Comcast).

From the link I posted, just for context:


It would not be possible for Trump or his allies to challenge all of the licenses held by NBC in one fell swoop. Individuals who reside in the areas the local channel airs would have to submit complaints to the FCC.



The FCC is technically an independent body, not subject to the president's orders. FCC Chairman Ajit Pai -- who is a Republican appointed to his current post by Trump -- said in March that his job is not to be a "political actor."

LOL, that's been ticking for some time. I think it finally ends in 2024.
