CNN President Jeff Zucker rips Trump, Sarah Sanders after explosive device received

Anthony Scaramucci speaks at a White House press briefing in 2017

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders Thursday echoed President Donald Trump's criticism of the media following bomb scares that have targeted several foes of the right-wing in the past two days, commenting that the media "has a role to play" in the process of ending division.

"Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said Wednesday that President Donald Trump is a liar and that he should probably dial down the lying".

Police say an envelope containing a live explosive and "some kind" of white powder was sent to the network's headquarters at the Time Warner Center in midtown Manhattan forcing an evacuation.

Netanyahu, Israeli officials make one-day visit to Sultan Qaboos in Oman
Arab states, including Oman, remain publicly committed to calls for a Palestinian state with east Jerusalem as its capital. Former Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin made the first visit by an Israeli premier to Oman in 1994.

"They asked me if the president tells mistruths or lies", Scaramucci said of his CNN interview during an appearance on Fox News. "It is the person who made and sent these suspicious packages".

Trump has blamed the news media for encouraging rancor that may have motivated the attacks. "So they go and put a little tagline, 'Scaramucci calls president a liar.' That's not what I was doing".

"A very big part of the Anger we see today in our society is caused by the purposely false and inaccurate reporting of the Mainstream Media that I refer to as Fake News", he said Thursday on Twitter. "It has gotten so bad and hateful that it is beyond description".

Broncos cut QB after alleged fights at Von Miller party
Broncos backup quarterback Chad Kelly was arrested on Tuesday after being charged with first-degree criminal trespassing. Kelly had, seemingly, cleaned up his act since being picked with the final pick of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Broncos.

Sanders defended the president by saying he has condemned violence in all forms since day one and will continue to do so. No, he said, Trump is not "a liar".

CNN in a late-night article alleged that Trump has taken no responsibility for the tone of the political discourse.

Feelings were raw at the cable network because of a what it believed was a reluctance by the administration to discuss CNN as one of the targets of crude devices sent to political leaders, and the delivery of a fundraising email that attacked CNN that arrived in inboxes of supporters as the story unfolded.

Prince Harry lays wreath for veterans in Fiji
The duke spoke of his admiration for the Fijian service personnel at a black tie dinner hosted by the president on Tuesday night. The palace said in a statement, "The Duke and Duchess have chose to cut back The Duchess's schedule slightly".

Scaramucci said responses by the media and politicians have been ineffectual, comparing them to bullied schoolchildren who reach out to hall monitors for help.
