Donald Trump yesterday threatened to try to take a major American news network off the air in his latest salvo against unflattering coverage amid reports that he wanted to expand the US nuclear arsenal tenfold.
“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,” he wrote in a Twitter post.
Hours later, he added: “Network news has become so partisan, distorted and fake that licenses must be challenged and, if appropriate, revoked. Not fair to public!”
Although, actually, you know, it does.
The Murdochs wouldn’t be having problems passing the fit and proper test for Sky if they were generally lefty now, would they? Trinity Mirror hacked just as much as News International and no one’s been spluttering about them.
