FAKE NEWS: Liberal News Outlets Try Mocking Fake News Awards
This time last year, leftist news outlets were concerned about what they coined "fake news." According to my leftist decoder ring, "fake news" roughly translates to: "that which the left cannot refute, ergo let's label it fake news so stuffy elitists like Mark Zuckerberg ban it from Facebook." The term erupted like a sudden zit besieging the newly crowned prom Queen. Trump took the term for his own use, labeling CNN and BuzzFeed "fake news" after the Russian Dossier story (video below).
See, so popular were the awards, the GOP's server crashed. As readers like you flocked to the GOP page as if it was an all you could eat beef buffet. The GOP underestimated just how popular the awards would be, and thus weren't prepared for the traffic surge.
Since the leftist media despised the idea of Trump getting the better of them, they slapped a fake news twist on the Fake News Awards. Like this:
That's not backfiring. That's a resounding success story. It's unprecedented success.
HuffPo, your slavish bias is showing.
The Root, a website which routinely engages in racism (against white people, so it doesn't "count") took a similar stance, after several paragraphs of tedious social justice malarkey, said this:
First off like much of this administration, the shit didn’t work. I don’t know if the fake news media thing was supposed to be lighthearted or what, but late Wednesday night, after several outlets posted that the president was full of beans for announcing that the awards would be coming and then not producing, a seemingly rushed listed was ushered onto the GOP’s website that immediately crashed.
It crashed because people were interested in the material. A problem with which The Root will likely never be afflicted.
The Washington Post, which changed its tagline to the pitiful "Democracy Dies in Darkness" after Trump became president, called the entire award ceremony a "flop" in their headline, then echoed their media compadres saying, "THE LINK DIDN'T WORK, HAHAHAHA." Even though the link didn't work because, as already stated, the server was overloaded. Due to the immense popularity of the awards. That's not a "flop." Though WaPo, who nabbed a #5 spot for the Fake News Awards, could just be trying to move up the rankings for next year.
Congratulations to all the winners of the first "Fake News Awards." Better luck next year, you whiners.
