On Wednesday night, the GOP published a major article that nobody can stop talking about.
President Donald Trump has mentioned numerous times a “fake news trophy” or “fake news award” on his Twitter account. However, nobody would’ve ever thought that we’d actually be sitting here talking about a piece, which you can view here, concerning an actual “award show” per se, attacking Fake News in America.
The article, titled “The Highly Anticipated 2017 Fake News Awards,” shows eleven major instances of “fake news” that the President has had to deal with from the media.
Their first one, attacking the New York Times, attacks their writer Paul Krugman for suggesting that the economy would fall under Trump.
Their second one, attacking ABC, criticizes their reporter Brian Ross’s “choke” during his reporting of a Trump-Russia story, that sent the stock market way down. ABC eventually had to issue a retraction.
Their third one, attacking CNN (who would’ve thought), attacks their reporting of President Trump and his son “hacking into WikiLeaks,” and inaccurately reporting on the subject.
Their fourth one, attacking TIME Magazine, attacks their false report saying that President Trump removed a model of Martin Luther King Jr, and attached a picture of Trump posing next to the figure.
The fifth one, attacking the Washington Post, criticized the “empty” rally that they reported was happening in Pensacola, FL. Of course, who could forget the empty rally that sold out? Smart!
The sixth one, attacking CNN again, criticized their reporting of Trump overfeeding Japanese fish with the Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe, while on his visit. It was later revealed that Abe led the way on the feeding.
Number seven, staying with CNN, attacks three reporters being forced to resign after fake news concerning Anthony Saramucci’s meeting with the Russians. They called it a “significant breakdown in the process.”
Number eight, hopping over to Newsweek, slams Newsweek for reporting that Polish First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda didn’t shake Trump’s hand. There’s photo evidence to prove that happened.
Number nine, back to CNN, attacks their reporting of Former FBI Director James Comey saying that Trump was under investigation. He testified in his hearing, which was broadcasted ON TV, that Trump was never under investigation.
Number ten, the New York Times reported that the Trump administration had hidden a climate report. They had to issue a retraction.
And last but not least, the GOP took a shot at ALL news networks reporting on the Russia Collusion Scandal, stating that it was the “greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people. THERE IS NO COLLUSION!”
The GOP also stated ten things Trump was doing well, despite the 90% negative media coverage. They recognized his great work for the economy, stating he’s created nearly 2,000,000 jobs and created $8,000,000,000,000 in wealth since he was inaugurated. They mentioned that African Americans and Hispanics are enjoying the lowest unemployment rate in recorded history. They mentioned that Trump had signed historic tax cuts and lowered taxes to the lowest since President Reagan. They mentioned that President Trump signed a major executive order, cutting job-killing regulations. They mentioned the Keystone Pipeline, ISIS being attacked harsher, Trump recognizing Jerusalem as the official Israeli capital, his demanding of NATO members to pay up, the Whistleblower Protection Act, and his campaign promise of getting Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court Bench done. They left out the Paris Climate Agreement, but overall, Trump has had a very good year in office.
You can’t really say the same for some of the media outlets. MSNBC is the only “liberal” news outlet prospering, and you see Fox News getting more and more viewers by the day. According to the January 8th edition of Basic Cable Ranker, Fox News Channel is the most watched network, MSNBC is #3, and CNN is all the way down at #7. ABC didn’t even make the list. Notice that Fox News isn’t on the list, and neither is MSNBC. (except MSNBC has been pushing the Russia story.)
Meanwhile, CNN makes an appearance FOUR TIMES on the list, and they’re all the way down at #7, and not even in the Top 10 for the hours of 8-11PM. And ABC isn’t even on the list!
These stats certainly give Americans a lot to think about when turning on their television and selecting who they’d like to hear their news from.
