Trump postpones his fake "Fake News Awards"

Trump postpones his fake

Last week, President Donald Trump announced that he would be handing out awards to "THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA" of the year.

"I will be announcing THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR Monday at 5:00 o'clock".

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

Apparently late-night minds think alike. The book raised questions about Trump's mental fitness, and in former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon said he thought the 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer was "treasonous".

Trump frequently rails on the media and accuses reporters and networks of being "fake news".

On December 28th Trump in an email to his fans and supporters started "King of Fake News" trophy. "And I, of course, don't want to get snubbed". And beyond that, I think we'll have to see what happens on Monday'.

The president seen here returning to the White House after spending the weekend with Congressional leaders at Camp David said on Sunday that there was great interest in his so-called'Fake News Awards

After the advert was released, The Daily Show's official Twitter account poked fun at Trump's literacy, saying: "Hey @realDonaldTrump, show them you're not semiliterate!"

Kimmel, more circumspect, expressed doubt that anyone in the media would actually receive an award. But will he be physically able to give a trophy to someone other than himself?

Well, Trump has now announced a schedule change. Trump has been quite open and offensive about leading American media outlets including names like CNN, ABC News, The New York Times and the Washington Post.

Trump, who often derides media coverage critical of his administration as "fake news", says the awards will cover "dishonesty" and "bad reporting" by media outlets.

Colbert also tweeted he was "so excited" for Trump's announcement, and he looked forward to seeing CNN host Anderson Cooper "on the red carpet".
