Since Donald Trump announced his candidacy for the White House, the mainstream media has lead an all-out assault against him, and has desperately tried to undermine him in a blatant display of extreme bias.
President Trump, sick of the biased coverage and outright lies, began referring to the media as the “Fake News Media,” and the term stuck, much to the dismay of networks like CNN, NBC, ABC, and others.
Recently, President Trump announced that he would host a “Fake News Awards” ceremony, which he says will be held on the 17th of January.
The Fake News Awards, those going to the most corrupt & biased of the Mainstream Media, will be presented to the losers on Wednesday, January 17th, rather than this coming Monday. The interest in, and importance of, these awards is far greater than anyone could have anticipated!

“Watch the hatred and unfairness of this CNN flunky,” said Trump, who also mocked Tapper for getting “destroyed” by Miller.
Jake Tapper of Fake News CNN just got destroyed in his interview with Stephen Miller of the Trump Administration. Watch the hatred and unfairness of this CNN flunky!

The president’s contemptuous relationship with the mainstream media has been no secret, and after his highly successful first year, the biased press is left looking increasingly foolish (to both Americans and the rest of the world) for their anti-Trump rhetoric.
The Fake News Media barely mentions the fact that the Stock Market just hit another New Record and that business in the U.S. is booming…but the people know! Can you imagine if “O” was president and had these numbers – would be biggest story on earth! Dow now over 25,000.

President Trump made sure to mention Brian Ross, ABC’s reporter who made an negative, fraudulent claim about President Trump during a live broadcast, and was suspended.
“He is no longer allowed to report on Trump,” said the President, who added that Ross “Should have been fired.”
Brian Ross, the reporter who made a fraudulent live newscast about me that drove the Stock Market down 350 points (billions of dollars), was suspended for a month but is now back at ABC NEWS in a lower capacity. He is no longer allowed to report on Trump. Should have been fired!
