Fake News Awards...

President Donald Trump and the GOP recognized the worst the media had to offer in 2017 on Wednesday with the Fake News Awards.
The press release highlighted reports from Harvard, the Media Research Center, and Pew Research Center that show the media has given the president overwhelming negative coverage through their highly-biased coverage. The GOP released the top 10 winners of the 2017 Fake News Awards:
1. The New York Timesí Paul Krugman claimed on the day of President Trumpís historic, landslide victory that the economy would never recover.

2. ABC News' Brian Ross CHOKES and sends markets in a downward spiral with false report.

3. CNN FALSELY reported that candidate Donald Trump and his son Donald J. Trump, Jr. had access to hacked documents from WikiLeaks.

4. TIME FALSELY reported that President Trump removed a bust of Martin Luther King, Jr. from the Oval Office.

5. Washington Post FALSELY reported the Presidentís massive sold-out rally in Pensacola, Florida was empty. Dishonest reporter showed picture of empty arena HOURS before crowd started pouring in.

6. 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.

7. CNN FALSELY reported about Anthony Scaramucciís meeting with a Russian, but retracted it due to a ďsignificant breakdown in process.Ē

8. Newsweek FALSELY reported that Polish First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda did not shake President Trumpís hand.

9. CNN FALSELY reported that former FBI Director James Comey would dispute President Trumpís claim that he was told he is not under investigation.

10. The New York Times FALSELY claimed on the front page that the Trump administration had hidden a climate report.
11. And last, but not least: "RUSSIA COLLUSION!" Russian collusion is perhaps the greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people. THERE IS NO COLLUSION!

A weak list IMHO. Right off the bat the Krugman statement is in an opinion column, big difference from being on the front page of the NYT. Some of these were corrected by the sources soon after dissemination. Is this all they can come up with? Last count I saw was that the Donald is bearing down on 2000 false statements either verbally or from tweets. I wonder how many of those he corrected?
Thanks from numan

They definitely show a collaborative theme.

Krugman is probably my favorite. This guy is an economist and people move money on his projections. What a fraud.

Wages falling, consumer spending down, student and auto loan debt spiralling out of control, wealth gap approaching medieval levels, falling standard of living, lowest life expectancy in the developed world and highest infant mortality rate in the developed world (those last 2 actually fall short of some of the more advanced DEVELOPING nations as well). But capitalists are making record profits thanks to 0% interest rates posted by the Federal Reserve and public perception is still optimistic becuase high unemployment hasn't snapped them back to reality yet so we can ignore our collapsing economy and congratulate Trump even though the economy is organic and only indirectly effected by policies that are themselves are implemented by congress rather than the president.

David is about 8 YEARS behind the times (i.e. early Obama years) as far as falling wages are concerned.

Not to mention a health "care"? system that is an international disgrace, a prison-industrial complex that rivals those of Hitler and Stalin, and an out-of-control War Machine which will forever stain the history of the United States.

U.S. is leaps and bounds better that Canada & UK's highly rationed systems (aka being on a long wait list & hope youe don't DIE before being seen by a doctor).

Actually, the buffoonish issues created by incompetence and underfunding that have happened under the communist medicine, simply would not happen in a 1st world country like the USA. Canada used to be 1st world, but now more like 2nd world since the unwise medical change.
