Fake News Awards Winners Announced: CNN, The New York Times, Washington Post Lead the Way

At long last, President Donald Trump announced the winners of the Fake News Awards. And as we suspected, CNN and The New York Times were among the big winners.

The president, according to the conservative website TruePundit (whose reporting was corroborated by Fox News), shared a list of 11 stories identified by Trump Fake News. CNN led the way with four of the top 11. The New York Times was represented with two stories. The Washington Post also had two.

Trump took to Twitter to share the link with a full list of the victors.

In a truly fitting touch, the link to the winners’ page has been down since the president’s tweet.

The president, despite following through on the Awards, did offer some conciliatory words for the media.

“Despite some very corrupt and dishonest media coverage, there are many great reporters I respect and lots of GOOD NEWS for the American people to be proud of!” Trump wrote.
