Journalism Group To Hold “Global Press Oppressors” Awards Opposite Trump’s “Fake News” Awards

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.
