President Trump Announces Delay of Fake News Awards

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

The Late Show host Stephen Colbert threw his hat into the ring with a "for your consideration" billboard in New York's Times Square, aiming to grab the president's attention for what the comedian coined "The Fakies". The awards ceremony will now be on Wednesday, January 17th.

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

Apparently late-night minds think alike.

"I get it. There's one viewer that you care about right now and you're being obsequious and you're being a factotum in order to please him, OK", Tapper said on "State of the Union", appearing to reference the president. 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".

On December 28th Trump in an email to his fans and supporters started "King of Fake News" trophy.

"The President of the United States is starting his own awards show - the Stupid People's Choice Awards are what they're calling it", Kimmel said. "I don't think so".

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. "Stay tuned!" the president tweeted.

The president first announced the awards on Jan 2 but scant details were released from the White House on how exactly the process would work.

Trump offered a back-handed congratulations to the newly named publisher of the New York Times, A.G. Sulzberger, earlier Tuesday, reigniting his public feud with the newspaper he gave an exclusive interview to the week prior.
