Trump's corrupt media awards: Why some pundits are angling to win

On Sunday President Trump announced he would be postponing what he's now calling the'Fake News Awards' moving them from this Monday to the following Wednesday

President Trump on Tuesday night claimed he will announce awards for the most "dishonest" and "corrupt" media of the year.

He added: "Subjects will cover Dishonesty and Bad Reporting in various categories from the Fake News Media".

Cape Town - Channel24 reported earlier this week that fake news king and caustic American president Donald Trump announced he is starting his own Dishonest Media Awards from the White House that he will dish out on the day after this Sunday's upcoming Golden Globe Awards.

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

The Late Show host Stephen Colbert threw his hat into the ring with a "for your consideration" billboard in New York's Times Square, aiming to grab the president's attention for what the comedian coined "The Fakies".

Trump says he'll give out the awards on January 17, but the White House hasn't said much about them. "And I, of course, don't want to get snubbed".

"Nothing gives you more credibility in the biz than Donald Trump calling you a liar", the "Late Show" host told his CBS viewers.

Mr Trump hit back on Twitter, writing: "I think [I] would qualify as not smart, but genius.and a very stable genius at that!"

Trump thinks about his presidency as an hour-by-hour exercise in programming, which is clear from his Twitter feed and the way he drives the coverage to new topics-say, National Football League protestors-when he wants to change the story line.

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.
