Donald Trump's fake news awards are due to take place today

GETTY
        DONALD TRUMP The US President is one of the most powerful people in the world

"Trump's attempts to undermine the free press also make it more hard to hold repressive governments accountable", McCain writes, adding "the phrase "fake news" - granted legitimacy by an American president - is being used by autocrats to silence reporters, undermine political opponents, stave off media scrutiny and mislead citizens". In December, The New York Times reported that "many of the world's autocrats and dictators are taking a shine to" fake news, including Venezuela's socialist leader, Nicolás Maduro, and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Senator McCain cited statistics from the Committee to Protect Journalists that 262 reporters were jailed last year over their work, making 2017 one of the most unsafe years on records for journalists worldwide.

Twitter has reacted accordingly today with speculation in the lead up to the so-called fake news awards.

Trumped announced the award show in early January, scheduling the "Most Dishonest & Corrupt Media Awards of the Year" for Jan. 3.

"Covered in real fake gold and made in "Gina" the mock Trump announced while holding the award. Asked about the awards in a press conference, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders referred to them as a "potential event".

10-year-old child seriously injured in NC shooting
According to neighbors and even police officers, nothing indicated that something to bad would have happened to this family. CMPD officials said their investigation revealed that Treadway assaulted her children before jumping off the bridge.

He said the Arizona senatorial delegation's criticisms of Trump should be heeded, noting that both Republicans John McCain and Jeff Flake have criticized Trump for his critique of the press.

On Tuesday the Media Research Center released new analysis of evening newscasts of the President by three major media outlets: ABC, CBS and NBC.

This alone should be a source of great shame for us in this body, especially for those of us in the president's party. When a figure in power reflexively calls any press that doesn't suit him "fake news", it is that person who should be the figure of suspicion, not the press.

Critics argue that he simply brands any negative reports on his leadership and actions as "fake news".
