Trump Fights Fake News With ‘Awards’ for ‘Most Dishonest and Corrupt Media’

President Trump taunted the media Tuesday night with a mysterious announcement of “the most dishonest & corrupt media awards.”

The tweet was the latest shot in a longstanding battle between the president and what he’s derided as the “fake news media.” Based on his past comments, it’s clear who could get nominated for the new “awards.”

“Whenever you see the words ‘sources say’ in the fake news media, and they don’t mention names,” Trump wrote in May 2017, “it is very possible that those sources don’t exist but are made up by fake news writers. #FakeNews is the enemy!”

For example, Trump slammed the Washington Post in December 2017 for a story claiming he came close to “rescinding” the nomination for Supreme Court pick Neil Gorsuch prior to his confirmation hearing.
