Trump's 'Fake News Awards' likely violate ethics rules and 1A rights

Ethically speaking, Trump’s “Fake News Awards” could be a violation.

Trump is planning his big “Fake News Awards” for Wednesday, and ethical experts around the country have a lot to say…

The White House hasn’t stated whether or not staff members will be taking part in the proceedings, but if “if the president enlists others in government to use government time or government resources to attack certain media outlets,” that will could lead to violations. Although any discipline for violations would have to come from the White House itself, and as we have seen previously, like when Kelly Anne Conway went undisciplined for hawking Ivanka’s wares on Fox & Friends, ethics violations are ignored or even applauded by this administration.
