Zucker slams White House for 'continued attacks on the media'

Trump and "especially" Sanders, Zucker wrote, "should understand their words matter". Sources told The Associated Press that a search of mail system databases has pointed investigators to Florida. Earlier in the day, Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale apologized for a fundraising email attacking the media that went out two hours after the news broke of the suspicious packages. "'Crazy Maxine Waters.' He has called news media 'enemy of the people.' And more", CNN White House reporter Jeremy Diamond tweeted. "It has gotten so bad and hateful that it is beyond description". He's "an intentional liar" who uses "a methodology of mistruth" with the aim of unsettling the mainstream media and the political left.

After President Donald Trump got a standing ovation from an invited crowd at the White House for saying acts or threats of political violence have no place in the United States, CNN chief Jeff Zucker issued a statement about the suspected bomb sent to his news network's NY offices, and to various Democrats Trump loves to target, who also were sent suspected bombs. "The president is certainly not responsible for sending suspicious packages to someone no more than Bernie Sanders was responsible for a supporter of his shooting up a Republican baseball field practice previous year - the idea that this is at the hands of the president is absolutely ridiculous". Bernie Sanders shooting congressional Republicans at a baseball practice.

The package that CNN received was addressed to former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan, a periodic guest commentator on the cable network.

NY law enforcement warned that any suspicious package should be handled with caution.

They said the packages should not be considered a hoax.

No one was injured by the devices. "Look in the mirror". "Your inflammatory rhetoric, insults, lies, & encouragement of physical violence are disgraceful".

"The safety of the American people is my highest and absolute priority", the president said. "BTW, your critics will not be intimidated into silence". "A Washington Post columnist said I deserve a lifetime of harassment". "It is a hard conversation to have to say one side cultivates violence, one side inspires this type of behavior more than the other because you sound partisan when you say it".

"We condemn the attempted violent attacks recently made against President Obama, President Clinton, Secretary Clinton, and other public figures". Sanders said that the media is partly to blame for the events. "This president is utterly failing to do so and actively to incite violence against it as well".

Sanders also denounced a fictional scenario published by the New York Times where the Secret Service collaborates with Russians to assassinate the president.

There was no immediate response from the White House. She said later that her comment was taken out of context. He largely avoided reporters Thursday.

President Donald Trump held a campaign rally in Wisconsin last night and while there were the all too common "lock her up" Hillary Clinton chants, the rally was relatively subdued. We saw what happened to you and your family in the restaurant. "Have you ever seen this?" And hopefully we can keep it that way, right?
