Trump announces his 'fake news awards'

Screen Shot 2018 01 17 at 5. 10.

President Donald Trump teased a website announcing so-called "fake news winners," but the website, hosted by the Republican National Committee, went offline almost immediately and displayed several different errors.

And the FAKE NEWS winners are. Trump tweeted with a link to the website on Wednesday night.

The website displayed the following messages upon loading: "The site is temporarily offline, we are working to bring it back up. Please try back later," and "Don't worry, we're making it great again. Start here.

Trump previously said that he would be announcing "THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR," in a tweet earlier this month.

Links to cached versions of the website were shared on social media. Instead of announcing a pre-determined winner, the cached website appeared to be a poll asking "Who would you crown the ultimate KING OF FAKE NEWS of 2017.

Several news organizations, including National Public Radio (NPR), The New York Times, BuzzFeed, and Fox News, were listed on the poll.

The Republican National Committee appeared to address the errors in a statement on Wednesday night: "Tonight, [the GOP] saw more traffic than ever before," the committee's official account wrote in a tweet. Even though the servers were scaled up, the interest was even greater than anticipated. Traffic is off the charts. Come back soon.

After announcing the "awards," Trump later tweeted in support of what he called "great reporters" and "good news," without listing any examples.

A relative of the victim told police that the couple used to fight over petty issues.

On Monday night, they had dinner with other family members after which an argument ensued. The matter was, however, resolved and the couple went to sleep with their two sons on the first floor of the house. In the morning, Shobha and Anil were found dead," said the relative.

The bodies have been sent for post-mortem. The elder son told police he saw his father beating up his mother and younger brother.

We have taken the statement from the elder son but the reason and the exact sequence of the incident will be clear once his father is arrested," Khan said.
