Trump to announce 'fake news' awards

The Daily Show Launchs Campaign for Trump's Dishonest Media Awards With Full Page Print Ad

Ex-Obama speechwriter: Tapper makes 'strong entry' for Trump's 'Dishonest & Corrupt Media Awards'

President Donald Trump will postpone his Fake News awards to January 17 from a scheduled date of Monday.

Trump tweeted last week that he would be "announcing THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR on Monday at 5:00 o'clock".

The 71-year-old said he would be handing out his "dishonest media" awards in various "fake media" categories, ranging from "dishonest" to "bad reporting".

On Thursday The Late Show's Stephen Colbert released a spoof ad asking the President to consider his show in all categories, including "Least Breitbarty", "Fakest Dishonesty", "Dishonestest Corruption", and for "The Eric Trump Memorial Award for Disappointment". But now his fans and the journalists will have to wait another 10 days.

Taking to Twitter, where he often does his little rants, Trump said that he will announce on this coming Monday his new - in all capital letters - "MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR".

The journalism watchdog group CPJ had tweeted last week that it would hold its own awards ceremony to coincide with Trump's. "Stay tuned!" Mr. Trump ended his tweet on the subject.
