Trump Delays Fake News Awards

Newsrooms around the country put their preparations on hold after President Trump announced that he would be delaying his breathlessly awaited, inaugural Fake News Awards until January 17th.

He announced initially announced the awards last Tuesday in a Tweet. "Because nothing gives you more credibility than Donald Trump calling you a liar".

Late night hosts took advantage of Trump's latest invention to poke fun at the president - and put themselves up for the honor, of course.

"I get it. There's one viewer that you care about right now and you're being obsequious and you're being a factotum in order to please him, OK", Tapper said on "State of the Union", appearing to reference the president.

The 71-year-old said he would be handing out his "dishonest media" awards in various "fake media" categories, ranging from "dishonest" to "bad reporting".

Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Trevor Noah bought a full-page ad in The New York Times, resembling the style of an Academy Awards "For Your Consideration" campaign.

Noting that Americans were "sick and exhausted of being lied to, insulted, and treated with outright condescension", the Trump Campaign said, "That's why President Trump is crowning the 2017 KING OF FAKE NEWS before the end of the year".

Mr Trump hit back on Twitter, writing: "I think [I] would qualify as not smart, but genius.and a very stable genius at that!" This would be one of its kind media award by the U.S. president.

President Trump has frequently singled out the Times, the Washington Post, CNN and other outlets for criticism of their reporting on the White House.

In November, he tweeted about a competition among news networks for the "Fake News Trophy", excluding Fox News.
