Skip to comments.Trump's 'Fake News Awards' lead with CNN, ABC's Ross, NY Times' Krugman

"2017 was a year of unrelenting bias, unfair news coverage, and even downright fake news. Studies have shown that over 90 percent of the medias coverage of President Trump is negative," according to the announcement.
The awards, hosted on the GOP's national website, were unavailable immediately following Trump's tweet announcing them, likely from a traffic overload.
"The New York Times Paul Krugman claimed on the day of President Trumps historic, landslide victory that the economy would never recover," according to the GOP-hosted website. Krugman's No. 1 listing is contrasted with a headline that shows the Dow hitting a record high.
No. 2 on the list says "ABC News' Brian Ross CHOKES and sends markets in a downward spiral with false report." ABC News was required to correct a report in December when Ross incorrectly reported that Trump directed a campaign aide to make contact with Russians during the campaign. The network later corrected the report to say it was during the transition, after Trump had already been elected. Ross was suspended for the error.
No. 3 blasts CNN for "FALSELY" reporting that candidate Donald Trump and his son Donald J. Trump, Jr. had access to hacked documents from WikiLeaks. CNN also corrected that report in December.
No. 4: "TIME FALSELY reported that President Trump removed a bust of Martin Luther King, Jr. from the Oval Office." That incident was a January tweet by a Time Magazine reporter. The reporter sent out more than a dozen tweets correcting the mistake and apologizing immediately following the first tweet that reported a bust had been removed.
No. 5 blames the Washington Post for reporting that "the Presidents massive sold-out rally in Pensacola, Florida was empty. Dishonest reporter showed picture of empty arena HOURS before crowd started pouring in."

So many fakestream presstitute lies, so little time.
Everyone, even knot-headed liberals, know how biased the MSM really is and that their “news” is a joke. They sure made fools out of themselves at the press briefing with the president’s physician, especially when you saw their lack of questions when Hillary collapsed or coughed extensively.
I love this president
Our CINC is giving us the glasses Roddy Piper found in They Live. When he blows up the broadcast hardware it’s gonna be ultraepic!
Me too. It is fun watching the libs lose it since he got elected.
Krugman as #1 is brilliant, lol
Hopefully this idiot, Krugman, got all of his money out of the stock market the next day. Do you think he was stupid enough to take his own advise?
We know he is an abject idiot.
get em, POTUS!
This is awesome! The enemedia is being put in its place.
Dammit, this is another stroke of brilliance from the master!!! OMG! Trump delivers a suckerpunch to the Left again.
Hes on the offensive and relentless. The cowardly media scum are reeling as they simply dont know whatll hit them next.
Just think: As ONE person, Trump is singlehandedly attacking and taking down the PC/Fakenews Media. SINGLEHANDEDLY!
Two years ago, who would have ever thought a single person could do such a takedown?
Of course, the MSM wont ever be totally defeated, but it has so many wounds from Trump that the MSM will never be the same again.
Yes, it needed to be pointed out to people who only randomly checked on politics and got their ‘news’ from these leftist propagatists. Trump has finally confronted these scumbags and people are learning to get real news elsewhere.
I am just loving this!
Twitter...Snapchat etc lmao
marked for later
