    How can people continue to support this guy? Can you think of any other historical figures that wanted to silence anyone that talked ill of them...?

    ""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!" Mr Trump wrote in a tweet."

    Donald Trump threatens to shut down NBC and other TV news networks that criticise him

    James Madison and Thomas Jefferson said that the free press was a key element in having a true democracy.

    "I am... for freedom of the press, and against all violations of the Constitution to silence by force and not by reason the complaints or criticisms, just or unjust, of our citizens against the conduct of their agents." --Thomas Jefferson to Elbridge Gerry, 1799. ME 10:78

    Trump suggests challenging NBC's broadcast license

    Well, it looks like trump has had enough of liberal propoganda.

    Hopefully this will be the end of MSNBC. NBC, CNN et al.

    Once we shut down the propoganda networks, i bet our country will be stronger than ever before!

    The market and the Internet are already punishing the LMSM. Trump is making a mistake here

    NBC and CNN attacked our democracy before the election and continue to attack our democracy now! There should at least be an overlay text on the screen that says FAKE NEWS during most of MSNBC's and CNN's broadcasts or move them to Comedy Central so nobody mistakes them for real news!

    The Donald is being specific in regards to them attacking The White and causing staff to respond to their fake questions based on their fake news! It endangers our country!

    How can you continue to support people who constantly lie to you about the election, conservatives as deplorables and other bullshit. Yeah, please start taking action against the LAMESTREAM MEDIA as We the People don't like PRAVDA and their continuing push of getting the US fundamentally transformed into the United Socialist States of America.

    DO NOT SHUT DOWN THE LEFTIST COMMIE MEDIA, EVEN IF IT IS THE PROPAGANDA ARM OF THE DNC.

    Do not compromise your principles or integrity for the sake of controlling information. This is commie talk.

    DO NOT DO IT!!!

    Only stations that shower Trump with praise should be allowed to have a license. The rest need to have their lincenses challenged or something.

    "“When the press is free and every man able to read, all is safe.” -Thomas Jefferson 1799

    “Nothing could be more irrational than to give the people power, and to withhold from them information without which power is abused. A people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with power which knowledge gives. A popular government without popular information or the means of acquiring it is but a prologue to a farce or a tragedy, or perhaps both.” -James Madison [1751-1836]

    Yep democracy is served by shutting down media outlets, that's how it usually works. You guys are incapable understanding the basic principles of the system that you profess to love.

    What's funnier than a Trumptard pretending to be opposed to lying?
