President Trump has released his Fake News Awards. In the spirit of the historic occasion, Breitbart News came up with a few journalist awards of our own.

News Anchor Who Ran Fastest to His Mommy Crying

— CNN’s  Don Lemon

Dumbest News Anchor

— CNN’s Chris Cuomo

Most Pathetic News Outlet


Actually tried to kill Trump’s Fake News Awards with a story about how they “could violate ethics rules.”

Biggest Lie of the Year

— ABC News

Claimed that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was going to testify that candidate Trump asked him to contact the Russians. The truth is that as president-elect, Trump asked Flynn to contact the Russians, which is totally appropriate. ABC News did not even bother to retract or correct this lie. They only had disgraced reporter Brian Ross issue a “clarification.”

Most Desperate News Anchor

— CNN’s April Ryan

Between PieGate and constantly screaming, “ARE YOU A RACIST!” at President Trump, CNN’s April Ryan is by far the most desperate to viralize her own hysterical trolling, even if it means proving that her IQ hovers below room temperature.

Reporter Who Kissed the Most Girls and Made Them Cry

— Glenn Thrush of the New York Times


The young woman ordered an Uber — the receipt shows it was about 11 pm — and says she planned to call [her friend] Padró Ocasio back once inside the car. In the few minutes she waited, she said, Thrush walked back over to her and started to kiss her again. She began to cry. When Thrush saw, he abruptly walked off, waving his hand flippantly, and left her alone to wait for her ride, she said.

Charlottesville Showed Liberalism Can’t Defeat White Supremacy. Only Direct Action Can:

In April 1968, amid a flurry of other “rocks,” riots shook American cities following the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. It took that rolling unrest, not the promise of further economic growth, to spur President Lyndon Johnson and Congress to action. Within a week, they had passed the Fair Housing Act.

During the past century, liberalism, vexed by an ever-sharp, ever-cutting white supremacy, has needed these rocks. …

Segregationists have again assumed their pedestals in the Justice Department, the White House, and many other American temples. Paper alone will not drive them out. Start throwing rocks.
