President Donald Trump announced Tuesday that he will hand out awards for dishonest media reporting in several different categories on Jan 8.

The president vented in late November that a contest should be held for the worst political coverage, excluding Fox News. He added that the winner of such an award should get a “fake news trophy.”

The president appears to have held the contest within the White House. Trump’s awards are likely to provoke significant backlash from news media organizations.
