Donald Trump doesn’t like any negative opinion against him.  For the first time in the history of the US, probably of the world as well, President Donald Trump has come up with a list of top 10 ‘Fake News’ award winners. The award, which was announced by Trump on Twitter, includes some of the most famous, highly regarded media publications and networks. Trump has declared ‘The New York Times’ as the winner of the ‘Fake News Award’ for a 2016 article by economist Paul Krugman. “The New York Times’ Paul Krugman claimed on the day of President Trump’s historic, landslide victory that the economy would never recover.” says the website on which the prize was listed.

In his opinion piece, Krugman had written about the economic fallout of Trump’s election as the US President. “It really does now look like President Donald J. Trump, and markets are plunging. When might we expect them to recover? …If the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never.” Krugman had called Trump “irresponsible”, “ignorant”. Giving such a man, who takes advice from all the “wrong people”, charge of the “world’s most important economy would be bad news”. This was Krugman’s hard-hitting opinion, not a news. But then Trump has listed it as the number 1 “Fake News”.

Some others in US President’s unique award list are ‘ABC News’, ‘CNN’, ‘Time’ and ‘The Washington Post’.

“2017 was a year of unrelenting bias, unfair news coverage, and even downright fake news. Studies have shown that over 90 per cent of the media’s coverage of President Trump is negative,” said. In a Tweet, however, Trump said, “Despite some ‘very corrupt and dishonest’ media coverage, there are many great reporters he respects And lots of GOOD NEWS for the American people to be proud of!.”

Commenting on others on the list says:

    • ABC News’ Brian Ross CHOKES and sends markets in a downward spiral with false report.
    • CNN FALSELY reported that candidate Donald Trump and his son Donald J. Trump, Jr. had access to hacked documents from WikiLeaks.
    • TIME FALSELY reported that President Trump removed a bust of Martin Luther King, Jr. from the Oval Office.
    • Washington Post FALSELY reported the President’s massive sold-out rally in Pensacola, Florida was empty. Dishonest reporter showed picture of empty arena HOURS before crowd started pouring in.

  • CNN FALSELY edited a video to make it appear President Trump defiantly overfed fish during a visit with the Japanese prime minister. Japanese prime minister actually led the way with the feeding.
  • CNN FALSELY reported about Anthony Scaramucci’s meeting with a Russian, but retracted it due to a “significant breakdown in process.”
  • Newsweek FALSELY reported that Polish First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda did not shake President Trump’s hand.
  • CNN FALSELY reported that former FBI Director James Comey would dispute President Trump’s claim that he was told he is not under investigation.
  • The New York Times FALSELY claimed on the front page that the Trump administration had hidden a climate report.
