Trump Delays Fake News Awards

The Daily Show Launchs Campaign for Trump's Dishonest Media Awards With Full Page Print Ad

On January 2, the United States president tweeted to say he would be announcing "the most dishonest and corrupt media awards of the year".

"I will be announcing THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR Monday at 5:00 o'clock".

"The interest in, and importance of, these awards is far greater than anyone could have anticipated!"

President Donald Trump who shares a bitter relationship with the mainstream American press has said he will announce the "most dishonest and corrupt" media awards next week.

Donald Trump Doubles Down on 'Stable Genius' Tweet at Camp David
Chatter about Trump's mental fitness for office has intensified in recent months on cable news shows and among Democrats in Congress.

Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel and Trevor Noah all took time out their shows on Wednesday to mull over their chances of receiving one of the awards - or as Colbert referred to them, "the Fakies".

"What an honour to be fake considered along with @StephenAtHome @iamsambee for the fakest media awards".

The 71-year-old said he would be handing out his "dishonest media" awards in various "fake media" categories, ranging from "dishonest" to "bad reporting". "Stay Tuned!", the group said in its tweet.

His tweet prompted worldwide bemusement and amusement, but now the President has said he is delaying the honours citing the "interest in and importance of" the awards. Fox News was not part of this competition. "Victor to receive the FAKE NEWS TROPHY!", he wrote on the micro-blogging site on November 27.
