Using his preferred method of communicating with the public, President Trump tweeted the winners of his “Fake News Awards” on the evening of January 17. His tweets included a link to an article entitled “The Highly-Anticipated 2017 Fake News Awards” on the Republican National Committee website. He declared,
Below are the winners of the president’s 2017 Fake News Awards.
1. The New York Times’ Paul Krugman [who] claimed on the day of President Trump’s historic, landslide victory that the economy would never recover.
[That item displayed a headline originally run by the Daily Caller: “Paul Krugman Says Markets Will ‘Never’ Recover From Trump; Dow Hits Record High.”]
2. ABC News’ Brian Ross CHOKES and sends markets in a downward spiral with false report.
[This item included a graphic of a headline reading: “ABC demotes Brian Ross after bungled report on Trump, Russia” and a graph illustrating the precipitous decline in the Dow Jones Industrial Average immediately after the release of the ABC report on December 1, 2017.]
3. CNN FALSELY reported that candidate Donald Trump and his son Donald J. Trump, Jr. had access to hacked documents from WikiLeaks.
