Before naming the full list of “winners,” the website cited that “studies have shown that over 90% of the media’s coverage of President Trump is negative.”
It went on to call 2017 “a year of unrelenting bias, unfair news coverage and even downright fake news.”
Coming in first place was The New York Times’ Paul Krugman for his predictions 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. (Read more from “Trump Reveals Winners of ‘Fake News’ Awards” HERE)
Trump Announces ‘Fake News’ Awards, Site Crashes
By Variety. President Donald Trump finally tweeted out a list of winners of the first Fake News Awards, but the link to a Republican National Committee site turned up error messages.
It was unclear if the site was overloaded. An RNC spokesman did not immediately return a request for comment.
But the message read, “The site is temporarily offline, we are working to bring it back up. Please try back later.”
Fox News, which apparently got access to a list of winners, reported that the New York Times topped the list.
The winner was columnist Paul Krugman for “claiming markets would ‘never’ recover from Trump presidency.” Others on the list were ABC News’ Brian Ross, CNN, Time, and the Washington Post’s Dave Weigel. (Read more from “Trump Announces ‘Fake News’ Awards, Site Crashes” HERE)
