“I’m hoping to create an era of a new good feeling with the media, give everybody a fresh start,” said incoming White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci during a Sunday-aired interview on Fox News Channel’s (FNC) Fox News Sunday.
“Let's see if we can reset this and create a more positive mojo among everybody,” added Scaramucci, suggesting that “mainstream media” outlets are possible political allies of the Trump administration.
Scaramucci declined to specifically identify news media outlets or personalities as purveyors of “fake news” when invited to do so by FNC’s Chris Wallace.

"Let's soften up our relationship with the press," said Scaramucci in a Sunday-aired interview with CNN's Jake Tapper for State of the Union,
During Friday’s White House press briefing, Scaramucci said “there’s a little bit of media bias” across the American landscape:
If you said to me that there’s some media bias out there; if you want me to be as candid as I would like to be with you guys, there feels like there’s a little bit of media bias. And so what hopefully we can do is deescalate that and turn that around, and let’s let the message from the president get out there to the American people.
Scaramucci also expressed optimism toward improving the White House’s relationship with the news media during last Friday's White House press briefing:
I think that the president’s gonna have a phenomenal relationship with the press. We’ll get there together.
