Trump to announce 'fake news' awards

The Daily Show with Trevor Noah has launched a hilarious ad campaign

He announced initially announced the awards last Tuesday in a Tweet.

On January 2, the United States president tweeted to say he would be announcing "the most dishonest and corrupt media awards of the year".

The White House hasn't given much indication if the awards will actually happen.

"Jake Tapper of Fake News CNN just got destroyed in his interview with Stephen Miller of the Trump Administration".

The "Fake News Awards", as Trump calls it, are going to "the most corrupt & biased of the Mainstream Media". "Stay tuned!" he tweeted.

Trump has previously labelled as "fake news" reporting on attendance numbers at his inauguration, his lack of immediate condemnation of violent white nationalists in Charlottesville and Robert Mueller's investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential elections.

After the advert was released, The Daily Show's official Twitter account poked fun at Trump's literacy, saying: "Hey @realDonaldTrump, show them you're not semiliterate!"

During his tenure as President, Mr Trump has repeatedly claimed the media has been unfair to him.

The Daily Show with Trevor Noah placed a full-page advert in the New York Times on Friday featuring quotes from negative reviews created to appeal to Trump.

Stephen Colbert also got in on the act, purchasing a billboard in Times Square to make sure he would not get snubbed.

"For your most dishonest & corrupt media awards of the year consideration", the ad began, including various real quotes, including from Breitbart calling the show "political propaganda", and the New York Post describing it as "monotonous...liberal dogma".
