2017 Fake News Awards are Here and We Have the Winners!

It's been promised for a while now, but President Trump finally delivered on the Fake News Award winners.

The list was released on GOP.com and opens with “2017 was a year of unrelenting bias, unfair news coverage, and even downright fake news.”

The big winners of the awards went to CNN with 4 and the New York Times with 2.

Here's the full list as summarized by Fox:

  1. The New York Times’ Paul Krugman claiming markets would ‘never’ recover from a Trump presidency.
  2. ABC News' Brian Ross’ bungled report on former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
  3. CNN falsely reporting the Trump campaign had early access to hacked documents from WikiLeaks.
  4. TIME report that Trump removed a bust of Martin Luther King, Jr. from the Oval Office.
  5. The Washington Post’s Dave Weigel tweeting that Trump’s December rally in Pensacola, Fla., wasn’t packed with supporters.
  6. CNN’s video suggesting Trump overfed fish during a visit with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
  7. CNN’s retracted report claiming Anthony Scaramucci-Russia ties.
  8. Newsweek report that Polish First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda did not shake Trump’s hand.
  9. CNN report that former FBI Director James Comey would dispute President Trump’s claim he was told he was not under investigation.
  10. The New York Times report that the Trump administration had hidden a climate-change study.
  11. In Trump’s words, "‘RUSSIA COLLUSION!’ Russian collusion is perhaps the greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people. THERE IS NO COLLUSION!”

But don't worry, the winners were very honored to accept their awards.
