President Donald Trump has postponed the announcement of his “Fake News Awards” of the year 2017 to January 12.
According to the President in a tweet, “The interest in, and importance of, these awards is far greater than anyone could have anticipated.”
The “Fake News Awards” is directed to the “most corrupt & biased of the Mainstream Media,” and the award will be given to the losers on Wednesday.
The United States President has often labelled U.S media of spreading fake news against him during the U.S presidential election campaign and even after being sworn-in as the President.
In early December, multiple major U.S. news outlets reported that the White House was planning to remove the current head of the State Department, as his relationship with Trump was “strained.”
Trump denied it as “FAKE NEWS!” on Twitter, and added that “He’s not leaving…we work well together.”
On Dec. 11, Trump dismissed a New York Times report that he watched four to even eight hours of television each day.
“Another false story, this time in the Failing @nytimes, that I watch four to eight hours of television a day – Wrong!” Trump Tweeted.
Clifford Levy who is the deputy managing editor at New York Times, tweeted in response to Trump that the newspaper stood by its story which was based on 60 interviews.
