“Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski said that only a “moron” would attack the free press, while discussing President Donald Trump’s tweets on media licensing Thursday.
“President Trump reacted to yesterday’s NBC News’ exclusive report about what happened during a meeting at the Pentagon last July by attacking the press and seemingly freedom of the press,” Brzezinski said.
Trump called mainstream media networks “fake news,” questioning their legitimacy and asking if their licenses should be revoked.
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!

Network news has become so partisan, distorted and fake that licenses must be challenged and, if appropriate, revoked. Not fair to public!

Brzezinski cited a New York Times article that read, “Networks themselves do not hold federal licenses, their individual television stations do.”
“I mean only a moron would think that anyhow,” Brzezinski said.
