US President Donald Trump Threatens To Review Licenses Of CNN And NBC News

U.S. President Donald Trump blasted CNN and NBC News yet again in a tweet on Tuesday, criticizing NBC's handling of a story on movie producer Harvey Weinstein and suggesting a "look at their license," without specifying what exactly he was calling for.



Trump has frequently criticized the U.S. news media for what he has said is unfair coverage of him.


"I have long criticized NBC and their journalistic standards-worse than even CNN. Look at their license?" he wrote in the tweet, which cited the outlet's coverage of Weinstein.


Ronan Farrow, a reporter, has said NBC News blocked him from working on a story about Weinstein, who is facing criminal rape and s#xual assault charges and a civil lawsuit for s#x trafficking. A former NBC producer corroborated Farrow's allegations.


Farrow later published the story in the New Yorker magazine. NBC News has defended its handling of the story. Weinstein has denied ever having nonconsensual s#x.

Comcast Corp, which owns NBC News, declined to comment. Following the tweet, a decline in the price of Comcast shares on the Nasdaq extended slightly.
