US President Donald Trump today postponed his much-talked about "Fake News Awards" to the mainstream media for "dishonesty and bad reporting" to January 17.

As you can see in the tweet above, the president is citing interest that "is far greater than anyone could have anticipated" as a possible reason for the date change.

"Personally, I'm excited for the most Dishonest and Corrupt Media Awards of the year", he said.

Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel and Trevor Noah all took time out their shows on Wednesday to mull over their chances of receiving one of the awards - or as Colbert referred to them, "the Fakies".

During his tenure as President, Mr Trump has repeatedly claimed the media has been unfair to him.

The 71-year-old said he would be handing out his "dishonest media" awards in various "fake media" categories, ranging from "dishonest" to "bad reporting". "Stay tuned!" he had tweeted.

Including quotes from such esteemed outlets of integrity as Breitbart News, which was denied Capitol Hill press credentials, and Fox News's Fox & Friends, the President's go-to morning show, the ad humbly requests the President's consideration when honoring the top fixtures in dishonest and corrupt media.
