President Donald Trump came through on presenting "The Fakies" ... his 2017 Fake News Awards. He teased it up as "The Most Dishonest and Corrupt Media Awards of the Year" ... and here are the HUGE winners (losers?) in his words. No shocker, CNN took the most trophies. 

- ABC's News' Brian Ross CHOKES and sends markets in a downward spiral in false report.

- TIME FALSELY reported that President Trump removed a bust of Martin Luther King Jr. from the Oval Office.

- The Washington Post FALSELY reported the President's massive sold out rally in Pensacola, Florida was empty. Dishonest reporter showed picture of empty arena HOURS before crowd started pouring in.

- CNN FALSELY edited a video to make it appear President Trump defiantly overfed fish during a visit with the Japanese Prime Minister. Japanese Prime Minister actually led the way with the feed.

- CNN FALSELY reported about Anthony Scarmaucci's meeting with a Russian, but retracted it due to a "significant breakdown in process."

- CNN FALSLEY REPORTED that former FBI Director James Comey would dispute President Trump's claim that he was told he was not under investigation.

- The New York Times FALSELY claimed on the front page that the Trump administration had hidden a climate report.

- "RUSSIA COLLUSION!" Russian collusion is perhaps the greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people. THERE IS NO COLLUSION!

Mariah Carey Sued She's Trying to Blame Us After SHE Bailed on Shows!!!

Breaking News

Mariah Carey tried to pass the buck on South American promoters, laying the blame on them for her canceled 'Sweet Sweet Fantasy' gigs ... according to a countersuit they've just filed.

The promoter, Fenix, says it arranged for Mariah to play 2 shows on her tour -- one in Argentina and one in Chile ... but she pulled out. The "why" is what sparked this legal war. Mariah's company initially sued Fenix, claiming it didn't pay her for the shows and damaged her brand.

But according to the new docs, obtained by TMZ, Fenix says it had paid Mariah nearly 75% of what she was due for the concerts -- $703,100. The promoter says that was standard ops based on previous deals with Mariah's camp. 

In the suit, Fenix says it believes the real reason Mariah bailed is because she had low ticket sales at 3 shows in Brazil. Further, Fenix says Mariah defamed them when she tweeted to her nearly 17 million followers at the time ... her fans "deserve better than how some of these promoters treated them."

The company is suing for at least $3 million. Mariah's lawsuit against Fenix is still pending.

Breaking News

Shareef O'Neal -- Shaq's son -- revealed he did not make the prestigious McDonald's All-American Game ... and now one NBA star is boycotting nuggets as a result. 

FYI, the Micky D's game features the top high school players in the country -- Shaq was the co-MVP of the game back in 1989. 

As you know, 18-year-old Shareef is a top prospect (he's committed to the Univ. of Arizona) -- but, for some reason, he didn't make the McDonald's cut. 

LeBron James (the MVP of the game in 2003) didn't approve of the snub ... and spoke out on social media.

"Nephew listen, Even though we all know you should have made that McDonalds game use it as motivation to prove not to those who didn’t vote you in, not to those who is actually in the game but more importantly to yourself that u belong!"

He added, "Keep grinding, studying and working daily! The light is always brighter at the end of the tunnel."

Matt Barnes went harder -- saying McDonald's made a "huge mistake" and that he won't let his kids have nuggets anymore ... "NO MORE NUGGETS!" 

As for Reef, he wrote, "Everything can’t go perfect ! I just gotta move on.. this hurt me but it ain’t stopping me."

Breaking News

The victims of Larry Nassar are continuing their impact statements on Wednesday ... telling the disgraced ex-Team USA doctor to his face why he's a piece of human garbage. 

Nassar sexually assaulted more than 100 women and girls -- the majority of them in his capacity as the team doc for Olympic Women's Gymnastics and Michigan State University. His victims include McKayla MaroneyAly RaismanGabby Douglas and Simone Biles.

Nassar will be sentenced on 7 first-degree sexual assault charges later this week -- but first, his victims are getting the opportunity to address the court and lobby for whatever punishment they see fit.

No surprise, many of his victims who told their stories on Tuesday wanted the judge to throw the book at Nassar. A maximum sentence would essentially ensure he spends the rest of his life behind bars. 

Burn in hell, scumbag.

Lane Kiffin's new offensive coordinator at Florida Atlantic isn't old enough to have a mid-life crisis.

He's 24 years old ... and he's Charlie Weis' son.

Charlie Weis Jr. is expected to follow in his dad's footsteps and become a big time football coach. He's already got a bunch of experience -- he was an offensive analyst at Alabama from 2015-16 and was a volunteer intern for the Patriots in 2014.

His dad got a massive $12 million contract with Notre Dame in 2004 after winning 4 Super Bowls as part of the Pats coaching staff. After his stint with the Golden Domers, Weis Sr. bounced around with the Kansas City Chiefs and U. of Kansas.

It's no surprise Kiffin's adding a millennial to his staff ... after all, we're talking about the guy who offered a scholarship to a 7th grader.

Jacksonville Bakery Trolls Big Ben How Do These Turnovers Taste?!

Breaking News

A Jacksonville bakery is rubbing salt in the wound after the Steelers' playoff loss to the Jaguars -- sending Ben Roethlisberger a care package of fresh-baked turnover pastries!!

Ouch.

"We appreciated the turnovers you gave us over our season so in return we wanted you to get a TASTE of 7 turnovers," Cinotti's Bakery wrote to Roethlisberger.

"So here are our very best apple, blueberry and cherry turnovers!" 

To be fair ... Big Ben actually played pretty well against the Jags -- throwing for 5 TDs and almost 500 yards -- but he did turn the ball over twice, and 7 times total when you include their regular-season game.

Silver lining -- the joint's got 4 stars on Yelp. Maybe Ben will actually enjoy 'em??
