WikiLeaks Calls Trump Administration ‘A Frequent Source Of False Information’ After Fake News Awards
An unlikely adversary to Donald Trump and his Fake News Awards has turned out to be none other than the organization Wikileaks.
Wikileaks, which sets out to publish secret or classified information online, was accused of having a pro-Trump bias after the 2016 election. In this context, it is, perhaps, surprising that Wikileaks said Wednesday on Twitter that, “the Trump administration is a frequent source of false information.”
Comment: While @WikiLeaks, as a primary source organization with a perfect verification record welcomes debate over “fake news” it should be noted that along with the U.S. establishment press, the Trump administration is a frequent source of false information. #FakeNewsAwards

The President was mocked online after the link he posted to the list, which was hosted on the Republican Party’s website, failed to load. The so-called “awards” were displayed online in list form and most were stories about his presidency or the Russia investigation.
The “winners” included CNN with four awards, along with The Washington Post and The New York Times, both with two.
