Trump fake news awards

Recommended Posts

President Trump revealed the winners of his self-proclaimed ‘Fake News’ awards Wednesday night on Twitter with The New York Times topping the list.

CNN also came out as a “winner,” with the left-leaning news network making the list four times.

The list, published on GOP.com, noted that “studies have shown that over 90% of the media’s coverage of President Trump is negative.” It went on to call 2017 “a year of unrelenting bias, unfair news coverage and even downright fake news.”

Coming in first place was The New York Times’ Paul Krugman for his prediction that the stock markets would never recover from Trump’s election.

In a bit of irony, the Dow Jones industrial average closed above 26,000 for the first time on Wednesday.

The Times was followed by ABC News’ Brian Ross for his botched report that Trump advised former National Security advisor Michael Flynn to make contact with Russian officials during the 2016 campaign.

The list pointed to a false CNN report that Trump had early access to “hacked documents” from Wikileaks, a video that suggested Trump overfed fish in a visit with the Japanese prime minister and a report that former FBI Director James Comey would deny saying Trump was told he was not under investigation.

The Times appeared on the list again for a false report that the Trump administration hid a report on climate change.

The final “winner” on the list, as Trump described it: “And last, but not least: 'RUSSIA COLLUSION!' Russian collusion is perhaps the greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people. THERE IS NO COLLUSION!”

The website carrying the results of the “Fake News Awards” crashed because it was flooded with visitors after Trump tweeted out the link.

Without naming anyone, Trump also tweeted out his praise for the “many great reporters.”

He continued, “Despite some very corrupt and dishonest media coverage, there are many great reporters I respect and lots of GOOD NEWS for the American people to be proud of!”

 

Below is the full list of winners of the 2017 Fake News Awards.

1)     The New York Times’ Paul Krugman claiming markets would ‘never’ recover from Trump presidency

7)     CNN’s retracted report claiming Anthony Scaramucci-Russia ties

8)     Newsweek report that Polish First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda did not shake Trump’s hand

9)     CNN report that former FBI Director James Comey would dispute President Trump’s claim he was told he was not under investigation

10)  The New York Times report that the Trump administration had hidden a climate-change study

11)  In Trump’s words, "‘RUSSIA COLLUSION!’ Russian collusion is perhaps the greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people. THERE IS NO COLLUSION!”

those twats at the guardian carefully avoid listing the winners.  If you take number 6 - non russian, non political - and look at the CNN cut and the uncut, it is blatant how they LIED BY OMISSION to make Trump look bad and presented it as news fact.  

 

Scummy Guardian would never report on that though

ITN News At Ten - Wednesday 17 January 2018 - Presenter Tom " Telegenic Friend Of The Royals " Bradby.

Closing bulletin with piece to camera.

" That's more or less it ..and for those of you waiting for  President Trump's Fake News Awards...

It turns out that the news about The Fake News Awards might itself be fake news.

Hilarious.

How we laughed. 

Join me again tomorrow I'll be here hopefully you will be too.

For now it is Goodnight...and thank you very much for watching. "

Tom smugly smirks to himself knowingly. Shuffles his gathered sheets of paper, neatly folds away his spectacles, and places his Mont Blanc pen safely in his jacket pocket. Camera pulls away and fades leaving him still smiling away.

Thanks Tom. Goodnight.

Feck it`s getting surreal ,they have worn their way through the bottom of the barrel 

Perhaps ridicule is the best form of defense in this situation

It’s a shame he’s had to do this but the fake news awards are a stroke of genius imo.

hopefully it’ll make the organisations think twice about what they put out there- they can no longer rely on publishing retractions/corrections once that no-one will see.

That certainly looks like the game

The height for me was when the media reported that he ignored a disabled boy who was visiting the White House, and the pinnacle of that Fake News story for me was the subsequent embarrassment of JK Rowling, oh,  how I smirked.

He's laughing but all this MSM fake news is a threat to the the US and the west's national security - and if it isn't an offence then it should be.
