Trump's senior economic adviser, Peter Navarro, said in a statement that the media conglomerates have "gained enormous control over our information, intrude into our personal lives, and in this election, are attempting to unduly influence America's political process."

"Donald Trump will drain the swamp of corruption and collusion, standing against this trend and standing for the American people."
Trump and his campaign frequently rail against the media. The Republican nominee has in recent days been saying the media is working with Clinton's campaign to rig the election in her favor.
The GOP nominee refused to say during the third presidential debate of 2016 that he would accept the results of the presidential election, though his campaign has since softened to say he'll accept the result if it is "fair."
