News video: FCC Quiet While Trump Rails Against News MediaDonald TrumpDonald Trump
Susan Walsh/AP A suggestion by President Donald Trump that a US regulator pull broadcast licenses from TV networks over what Trump calls "fake news" has been met by silence from the watchdog's head Ajit Pai, who has a history of defending free speech rights. Pai, who was reconfirmed last week for a new five-year term at the Federal Communications Commission and named chairman by Trump in January, has been urged by members of Congress to denounce Trump for a proposal that has little, if any, chance of success.
