President Trump to Announce 'Fake News Media' Awards Monday

Adjust Comment Print

U.S. chat shows including The Daily Show and the Late Show with Stephen Colbert are fighting it out to be named in Donald Trump "Most Dishonest and Corrupt Media Awards of the Year" on Monday (8 January).

As you can see in the tweet above, the president is citing interest that "is far greater than anyone could have anticipated" as a possible reason for the date change.

"MediaBuzz" host Howard Kurtz weighs in on President Trump's Twitter promise to host 'the most dishonest & corrupt media awards of the year'.

Amongst countless revelations, the book claims former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon described a meeting between Donald Trump Jr and a group of Russians was "treasonous".

Transit agencies reported there were delays during the early morning commute while they checked for any damage. But a video posted to Twitter showed products that had fallen from the shelves of a San Leandro Safeway store.

"Personally, I'm excited for the Most Dishonest and Corrupt Media Awards of the year", he said.

"That's why President Trump is crowning the 2017 KING OF FAKE NEWS before the end of the year". He added that the victor of such an award should get a "fake news trophy". Not to be outdone by Colbert, Noah not only purchased a billboard in Times Square but took out a full-page ad in the New York Times promoting The Daily Show as "political propaganda disguised as entertainment" and "monotonous...liberal dogma". "Stay tuned!" he tweeted. "The good news is, despite his threats to Korea, at least he thinks we're going to make it until Monday". "I don't think so".

In an email to his supporters on December 28, the Trump campaign sought nomination for the "King of Fake News" trophy. But President Trump isn't one to be overshadowed, so he's getting in on the awards show action himself.

Trump has regularly slammed the coverage of his campaign and time in the White House.
