President Trump openly threatened Wednesday to go after the licenses of NBC News and the “Networks,” as he ratcheted up his complaints about “Fake News.”

“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!” Trump tweeted.

At what point should the government actually challenge the news for false reporting? Laws are on the books for slander, libel and all kinds of things. False news can cause riots, discrimination, division and worse.

Should the government get involved and so something when paid-for-news blatantly posts false stories?
