  • As president Trump is allowed to go after his perceived political opponents. But taxpayer-paid staff face ethics rules barring them from actin to help or hurt companies while on the clock

His rebuke of Mr. Trump's attacks on the news media comes as fellow Arizona Republican Sen.

"While administration officials often condemn violence against reporters overseas, Trump continues his unrelenting attacks on the integrity of American journalists and news outlets", the Arizona senator wrote in an op-ed published by the Washington Post. Trump's constant criticism of the media "has provided cover for repressive regimes to follow suit", McCain wrote.

During the White House press briefing Wednesday afternoon, press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters that they would be announcing something about the fake news awards later the same day and joked, "I know you're all waiting to see if you're big winners, I'm sure". "For decades, dissidents and human rights advocates have relied on independent investigations into government corruption to further their fight for freedom".

It is unclear whether the awards are, well, real. CBS's Stephen Colbert even took out a giant billboard in Times Square to promote himself for a fake news award. In response to Trump's announcement that he would present fake news awards, CPJ awarded him for "Overall Achievement in Undermining Global Press Freedom". In an interview on MSNBC, Flake said Trump's hostility to the media as an "enemy of the people" was a phrase "infamously spoken by Joseph Stalin to describe his enemies".

This alone should be a source of great shame for us in this body, especially for those of us in the president's party. The number of journalists jailed for reporting "fake news" worldwide also doubled. Reagan recognized that as leader of the free world, his words carried enormous weight, and he used them to inspire the unprecedented spread of democracy around the world.
