Tonight was the big night. The night the media have been waiting for. The night when the Trump Administration handed out the 1st Annual #FakeNewsAwards. There was a delay in the roll-out as the website crashed because of Jim Acosta’s repeated refreshing of the screen. These are the screenshots taken by @ComfortablySmug

The roundup: CNN took the top honors for inaccuracy and disregard for truth with four awards. Actually, CNN could have swept the field but then the awards wouldn’t have been fun. The New York Times was in second place with two. ABC, Time, Newsweek, and the Washington Post each received one. Be sure to check out the industry-wide award at #11.
