The nominations for this year’s Oscars will be announced later this month, but President Trump will be revealing the “most dishonest & corrupt media awards” next week.
The president made the announcement on Twitter Tuesday, noting that winners would be announced for categories such as “dishonesty” and “bad reporting.”
I will be announcing THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR on Monday at 5:00 o’clock. Subjects will cover Dishonesty & Bad Reporting in various categories from the Fake News Media. Stay tuned!

Trump announced the idea of a “Fake News Trophy” in a tweet in November, in which he named CNN but “not including Fox” News.
We should have a contest as to which of the Networks, plus CNN and not including Fox, is the most dishonest, corrupt and/or distorted in its political coverage of your favorite President (me). They are all bad. Winner to receive the FAKE NEWS TROPHY!

His announcement came after an email sent by his campaign last week asking supporters to vote for a “Fake News Trophy” to be awarded.
“Americans are sick and tired of being lied to, insulted, and treated with outright condescension,” the email sent to the president’s supporters read, according to The Hill. “That’s why President Trump is crowning the 2017 KING OF FAKE NEWS before the end of the year.
“There’s no point in pretending that some journalists are anything more than peddlers of falsehoods and liberal propaganda,” the email read, linking to a poll to vote on stories as “fake,” “faker” or “fakest” news.
A recent poll from Rasmussen found that 40 percent of respondents thought Fox News should get the “Fake News Trophy,” and 25 percent were in favor of CNN as the winner.
But Trump’s supporters on Twitter were pretty clear on who the real “winners” should be and are looking forward to the “award ceremony.”

I’m sure Jeff Zucker will be there to accept CNN’s award as the greatest fake News Network on the planet! Jim Acosta will be there as well accepting his award for the most phony reporter in America!

Looking forward to the awards show for fake news on Monday. I think Stelter should get a special award along with Acosta. They have set an amazing new record for biased fake news. 😂
