The most dishonest media

US President Donald Trump announced on Twitter the date of the awards ceremony for the most deceitful media – The Fake News Awards. According to the American leader, the event will be held on Wednesday, January 17. Originally Trump wanted to “reward” the media today, but because of the wide interest the ceremony was decided to move to a later date.

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! – Trump wrote.

The idea to name the most dishonest media Trump first voiced last week. According to many, the main favorite for this “award” is the CNN channel. This television channel is regularly attacked by the head of state, and a few days earlier Trump made a repost of a message from one of his subscribers, where the CNN logo was depicted on the sole of the President’s shoe in the bloodstain.
