The Hill reports:
The Committee to Protect Journalists tweeted that it would be holding “The Global Press Oppressors Awards” next week at the same time as President Trump’s “Dishonest and Corrupt Media Awards.”
The organization hosts an annual “Press Freedom Awards” and annually documents instances of journalists being killed or imprisoned in their line of work.
Trump, who has often lashed out at the media and attacked reports about him and his administration as “fake news,” announced his award ceremony earlier this week.
CPJ will be announcing THE GLOBAL PRESS OPPRESSORS AWARDS on Monday at 5:00pm. Subjects will cover Thinnest Skinned & Outrageous Use of Laws, in various categories for world leaders. Stay tuned! #TheFakies #PressFreedom #PressOppressors https://t.co/0r93ceV3HJ

We should have a contest as to which of the Networks, plus CNN and not including Fox, is the most dishonest, corrupt and/or distorted in its political coverage of your favorite President (me). They are all bad. Winner to receive the FAKE NEWS TROPHY!
