President Donald Trump took to Twitter Wednesday night to announce his winners of the “Fake News” awards.
The president tweeted a link to GOP.com for the full list but the site crashed soon after and said it was “temporarily offline.” The website is now available with the complete list and articles here.
The New York Times’ Paul Krugman led the awards, winning first place for his 2016 prediction that the stock markets would “never recover” from Trump’s win over Democrat Hillary Clinton.
According to Fox, the full list of winners is:
1, The New York Times’ Paul Krugman claiming markets would ‘never’ recover from Trump presidency
2. ABC News’ Brian Ross’ report on former national security adviser Michael Flynn
3. CNN report that the Trump campaign had early access to hacked documents from WikiLeaks
4. TIME report that Trump removed a bust of Martin Luther King, Jr. from the Oval Office
5. The Washington Post’s Dave Weigel tweeting that Trump’s December rally in Pensacola, Florida, wasn’t packed with supporters
6. CNN’s video suggesting Trump overfed fish during visit with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe
7. CNN’s retracted report claiming Anthony Scaramucci-Russia ties
8. Newsweek report that Polish First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda did not shake Trump’s hand
9. CNN report that former FBI Director James Comey would dispute President Trump’s claim he was told he was not under investigation
10. The New York Times report that the Trump administration had hidden a climate-change report
11. In Trump’s words, “‘RUSSIA COLLUSION!’ Russian collusion is perhaps the greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people. THERE IS NO COLLUSION!”
Trump followed the announcement with another tweet:
Despite some very corrupt and dishonest media coverage, there are many great reporters I respect and lots of GOOD NEWS for the American people to be proud of!
