If he said that, he meant it as a joke, and it's very funny. His sense of humor is cool and intelligent, but many don't get it.

Do "broadcast" at the leave these companies broadcast at you need a lot of power, high power. To have high power in any area of the U.S., you need a license.

Pulling the license shuts off the power and the Feds can do that...shit the EPA can do that

You don't need that much power for a cable signal, there's no broadcasting involved (radio signals and such) that require high power, just the usual server farm and routers and the like, that most big businesses have anyway.

There are licenses from the FCC - Federal Communications Commission.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74238146


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.
 Quoting: GA Girl

'The Federal Communication Commission’s rules and regulations relating to cable television include carriage of television broadcast signals, commercial leased access, program access and carriage, commercial availability of set-top boxes, emergency alert systems and the accessibility of closed captioning and video description of television programming."

From their website.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78439385


That affects cable TV providers, like Comcast, not the content of the channels they carry.
 Quoting: Monty Python


And here’s Donald Trump’s rant about Comcast at his Las Vegas pep rally:

“ The owners of Comcast, rotten company, bad for our country, very bad. They try, they have all these PR things to try and keep their image nice and clean. What they do on television is so disgusting. Let’s see what happens over the next period of time. Bunch of dishonest people. Comcast, terrible company. Terrible people running that company. And you know what, I had Celebrity Apprentice, I had the Apprentice on for 14 seasons, 14 seasons, and they used to come to my office and they would kiss my ass. Please sign. Please. Please sign.“

FCC has no direct jurisdiction over cable networks, only broadcast.

However, most cable headends receive content via satellite feed, and the frequencies used for that are licensed by the FCC. Additionally, CNN & MSNBC would also have business licenses.

They also use satellite feed for remote out in the field. Although, some of this is being done over the internet, now.
