The Daily Show Launchs Campaign for Trump's Dishonest Media Awards With Full Page Print Ad

The 71-year-old said he would be handing out his "dishonest media" awards in various "fake media" categories, ranging from "dishonest" to "bad reporting".

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

The President's announcement comes as his administration is dealing with significant allegations from journalist Michael Wolff's book Fire and Fury, detailing Mr Trump's first year in the White House.

On January 2, the United States president tweeted to say he would be announcing "the most dishonest and corrupt media awards of the year". The president initially said he would be announcing the accolades this Monday, and didn't give a reason for the change. "Stay tuned!", he wrote.

CBS' "Late Night" host Stephen Colbert threw his hat in the ring for Trump's awards by putting a giant "for your consideration" billboard in Times Square, CBS News reported.

Noah's entry shows the host with a series of quotes including "Isn't "The Daily Show" a fake news show?" from news program Fox & Friends, which appeared on the show's Twitter feed as well as a full-page ad in The New York Times on Friday. The ad cites media outlet Breitbart News calling the show "political propaganda disguised as entertainment" and the New York Post describing it as "monotonous...liberal dogma".
