The day we’ve all been waiting for has arrived. President Trump revealed his choices for the first annual “Fake News Awards” and many “fact-checking” news sites, including the blatantly biased PolitiFact, were quick to derail the issues at the heart of the awards by “fact-checking” what Americans already know: the mainstream media is unapologetically biased.
