Trump Announces Plan to Give Out 'Most Dishonest & Corrupt Media Awards'

Trump has been at loggerheads with several US mainstream media outlets

On Monday, President Donald Trump plans to make his consistent disdain for the media official by announcing the "MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR", he tweeted on Tuesday evening.

And an October Politico/Morning Consult poll found nearly half of voters believe the news media make up stories about Trump and his administration. "Stay tuned!" Tweeted Trump.

He continued: "Get impartial journalists of a much higher standard, lose all of your phony and non-existent 'sources, ' and treat the President of the United States FAIRLY, so that the next time I (and the people) win, you won't have to write an apology to your readers for a job poorly done! GL".

U.S. President Donald Trump tweets on January 3, 2017 that he would present "the Most Dishonest and Corrupt Media Awards" of the year 2017. They are all bad. "Victor to receive the FAKE NEWS TROPHY!" Trump had tweeted on November 27.

Of course, this is far from the first time the president has announced his plan to attack the "fake news" by implementing some kind of mock "trophy" system for media outlets he doesn't like. "Victor to receive the FAKE NEWS TROPHY!" president Trump had tweeted on November 27.

Late in the evening, Fox News listed out some news stories of other networks that later proved to be inaccurate. "And we want to hear from you", the email said.

"At President Trumps request, we are holding a contest to name the 2017 KING of Fake News".

However, Trump's definition of Fake News is totally subjective.

CNN's reported that Donald Jr. received an email on September 4, 2016 from WikiLeaks granting them special access to materials that would later become public - however, he received the email from WikiLeaks on the September 14, 2016 - after the documents had been published, which indicated there was not a collaboration with the hacker organization and Trump. Sometimes he targets one particular network, the CNN, as the bearer of fake news, while at other times, he targets well-sourced stories containing potentially embarrassing details about his administration, particularly with regard to the Russian Federation investigations.
