President Trump has finally announced the winners of last year's fake news awards. Top ranking news organizations, including the New York Times, CNN and the Washington Post handily scooped up some of the awards.
CNN scored the most fake news wins.
CNN FALSELY reported that candidate Donald Trump and his son Donald J. Trump, Jr. had access to hacked documents from WikiLeaks.
CNN FALSELY edited a video to make it appear President Trump defiantly overfed fish during a visit with the Japanese prime minister.
CNN FALSELY reported about Anthony Scaramucci’s meeting with a Russian, but retracted it due to a “significant breakdown in process.”
CNN FALSELY reported that former FBI Director James Comey would dispute President Trump’s claim that he was told he is not under investigation.
That's four in total. A good reminder of why CNN remains the leading name in fake news and forced airport viewing.
The New York Times was hot on CNN's heels with two wins.
The New York Times’ Paul Krugman claimed on the day of President Trump’s historic, landslide victory that the economy would never recover.
The New York Times FALSELY claimed on the front page that the Trump administration had hidden a climate report.
To be fair here, Paul Krugman had existed in his own fake economic universe for a long time now. Inspired by science fiction to embark on his absurd career, he's living in his own imaginary universe.
Other fake news award winners include ABC News, the Washington Post and Newsweek: which these days prints every headline in ALL-CAPS as a desperate cry for help.
