And the Fake News Award Goes To…


The President has been saying for weeks that he will release a list of “winners” that will take home the “fake news” trophy for 2017. The assembled list, which was released via the GOP website, is a treasure trove of the media’s greatest hits when it comes to their failures in covering the actions of President Trump.

Fox News gives us a rundown of the big “winners”:

Coming in first place was The New York Times’ Paul Krugman for his prediction that the stock markets would never recover from Trump’s election.

In a bit of irony, the Dow Jones industrial average closed above 26,000 for the first time on Wednesday.

The Times was followed by ABC News’ Brian Ross for his botched report that Trump advised former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn to make contact with Russian officials during the 2016 campaign.

The list pointed to a false CNN report that Trump had early access to “hacked documents” from WikiLeaks, a video that suggested Trump overfed fish in a visit with the Japanese prime minister and a report that former FBI Director James Comey would deny saying Trump was told he was not under investigation.

The Times appeared on the list again for a false report that the Trump administration hid a report on climate change.

Newsweek sent out a tweet Wednesday evening acknowledging its “award.”

The final “winner” on the list, as Trump described it: “And last, but not least: ‘RUSSIA COLLUSION!’ Russian collusion is perhaps the greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people. THERE IS NO COLLUSION!”

This list is a fantastic reminder of just how partisan and wrong these morons in the media truly are. Paul Krugman has been discredited time and time again, why does the New York Times even give him a paycheck? Oh, right, because he writes columns speaking against free market capitalism which is something the New York Times approves of.

Brian Ross is another noted fake news creator who shouldn’t be anywhere near the semblance of an objective newsroom. Actually, maybe Brian Ross should quite ABC and go work for CNN where he will blend in with the rest of their crew.

If the Russian collusion story isn’t the lie of the year for 2017, then nothing else should even make the grade.
