American President Donald Trump has made the announcement that he will announce the “most dishonest and corrupt” media awards next Monday.
There has never been good relations between Donald Trump and the mainstream American Media. Trump has been quite open and offensive about leading American media outlets including names like CNN, ABC News, The New York Times and the Washington Post. He, on many occasions, has called them ‘fake’ media.
In a tweet, Donald Trump stated, “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!”

Fox News has been eliminated from this list, being the favorite channel of Donald Trump.
Last November Donald Trump in a tweet talked about a competition called “Fake News Trophy” among the news channels. Fox News was not part of this competition.
The November 27th tweet by Trump stated, “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!”
Then later in the evening, Fox News announced some news stories of other networks that were found inaccurate afterward.
On December 28th Trump in an email to his fans and supporters started “King of Fake News” trophy. The email read, “At President Trump’s request, we are holding a contest to name the 2017 KING of Fake News. And we want to hear from you. The FAKE NEWS has utterly abandoned their duty to fairly report the news to the American people. Some journalists and liberal pundits think that Americans are too stupid to see through their amateur efforts to manipulate public opinion, but THEY’RE WRONG.”
The Trump campaign further said that the Americans are tired of being lied to.

“That’s why President Trump is crowning the 2017 KING OF FAKE NEWS before the end of the year”.
It said, “There’s no point in pretending that some journalists are anything more than peddlers of falsehoods and liberal propaganda.”
Now as per Trump there is competition between three news outlets for the title “King of Fame news”.
It said, “ABC News ‘MISTAKENLY’ reported that candidate Trump directed Michael Flynn to make contact with Russian officials before the election.”
“CNN ‘MISTAKENLY’ reported that candidate Donald Trump and his son Donald J Trump Jr had access to hacked documents from WikiLeaks.”
“TIME ‘MISTAKENLY’ reported that President Trump removed a bust of Martin Luther King, Jr from the Oval Office.”
