CNN is dubbed the biggest winner of the so-called award show after being listed four times, while The New York Times follows behind after being listed twice.

AceShowbiz - In early January, President Donald Trump tweeted that he was planning to announce the winners of his so-called "Fake News Awards", saying that the winners are "the most corrupt & biased of the Mainstream Media." The winners of this award were finally announced on Wednesday night, January 17 on a blog post on

There were ten winners that were listed on the post. CNN was dubbed the biggest winner of the award after being mentioned four times in the list. Trailing behind CNN was The New York Times, which was mentioned twice. Other news outlets such as Newsweek, Time and The Washington DC were all mentioned once.

The New York Times columnist Paul Krugman landed on the top spot in the list. Trump claimed that Krugman's theory of his presidential winning would hurt the United States' economy. Trump also included Russian Collusion, stating that the news "is perhaps the greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people."

It didn't take too long for many celebrities to mock the president following the winner announcement. Among them was Chrissy Teigen, who posted an epic clip of herself sitting in an empty theater. To accompany her, the model drew some guests like CNN and broadcaster Jake Tapper on papers and pasted them on the empty seats. Teigen didn't put any caption on the post.

Kathy Griffin, who caused a major controversy after posting a video of her holding up a fake, bloody Trump head, also joined the mock party. "CNN just SWEPT at the Highly Anticipated Donald Trump Fake News Awards," so the comedian tweeted. "I'm just grateful that 'Highlights' & TV Guide print edition got a pass."

Meanwhile, commentator Ben Saphiro congratulated CNN for being dubbed the biggest winner of the award. He wrote, "Congrats to CNN on its 4 big Fake News Awards!" adding a gif of actress Sally Field saying, "You like me!"
