Was going to say, what, have you never heard of a broadcast license?

FCC manages that.

FCC is accountable to the Executive Branch.

Within limits, the president can dictate their policy decisions. That would be very rare, I cannot think of that ever happening in the direct form we're discussing here.

Not true, the Smith Mund act made it illegal to use propaganda on the American people.

in 2012, Obama changed it.

Now it is perfectly legal. The only way to end fake news is to have their broadcasting licenses removed.

FCC licenses broadcasters, and this includes both news and entertainment. However, CNN and I assume MSNBC are both cable news networks. There is no licensing for cable, and they can pretty much say whatever they want so long as it is not libelous. NO government agency regulates cable for content.

Nope. There is no single license for CNN, MSNBC or any other national television network. Licenses are granted to individual local stations. It is extremely unusual for any station's license to be taken away for any reason, much less for a political vendetta which would be in violation of the First Amendment.

I see. The old “TDS” slogan as an explainer again.

Pai: FCC Can't Pull Licenses Over Newscast Content

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai says that "under the law, the FCC doesn't have the authority to revoke a license of a broadcast station based on the content of a particular newscast."

That was at a Mercatus Center/AT&T event in Washington Tuesday (Oct. 17) on The Future of Telecom Law, the chairman's first public appearance since the President's tweeted threats to news outlets prompted calls for his repudiation of them, as event organizers were pointing out in promoting he appearance.

The chairman was asked about the President's tweets, and said that he was reiterating his long-stated support for the First Amendment. "I have said for many years at the FCC that I believe in the First Amendment and under my leadership will stand for the First Amendment."

Asked whether there was any role, "statutorily or morally" in the deciding what was "fake news" and doing something about it, Pai said: "Traditionally that has not been within the FCC's jurisdiction. I tend to be a lawyer by training and hew as closely as I can to the terms of the Communications Act and other applicable legal principles," he said, "so that is the standard that we adopt, at least going forward."
