Priyanka Chopra: US writer sorry for 'scam artist' comment

Mariah Smith said she took "full responsibility for what I wrote, and I was wrong. I am truly sorry".

The article in The Cut, a New York-based website, has since been taken down.

Many Indians had jumped to Ms Chopra's defence and accused The Cut of racism.

However Ms Smith said she did not "condone racism, xenophobia, or sexism".

It follows an earlier apology from The Cut, which said the article "did not meet our standards".

Ms Chopra and Mr Jonas married last weekend in the city of Jodhpur in India's north-western Rajasthan state.

Trump attacks US media at 100-day Pennsylvania rally

He told supporters in Pennsylvania that he was keeping "one promise after another", dismissing criticism as "fake news" by "out of touch" journalists.

Mr Trump decided to skip the White House Correspondents' Dinner - the first US leader to miss the event since an injured Ronald Reagan in 1981.

At the rally in Harrisburg, the president said the media should be given "a big, fat, failing grade" over their coverage of his achievements during his first 100 days and told the cheering crowd he was "thrilled to be more than 100 miles from Washington".

Trump echoes Bannon: Media is 'opposition party'

"I think the media is the opposition party in many ways," Trump said in an interview with Christian Broadcasting Network's David Brody.

"I'm not talking about everybody but a big portion of the media," he added. "The dishonesty, the total deceit and deception makes them certainly partially the opposition party, absolutely."

Trump said the media is "much more capable than the opposition party," referring to the Democrats.

"The opposition party is losing badly," he said. "Now the media is on the opposition party's side."

Trump team in fresh war of words with US media

On Saturday the president had condemned media reporting of the number of people attending his inauguration.

White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said there was "an obsession... to de-legitimise this president. We're not going to sit around and take it."

But photos show more people attended the inauguration of Mr Trump's predecessor Barack Obama in 2009.

Mr Priebus said on Fox News Sunday that the "media from day one has been talking about de-legitimising the election". He said Mr Trump's presidency would fight such coverage "tooth and nail every day".

TV anchor accused of being fascinated by sex

The Republican claimed she showed "bias" for mentioning the groping allegations against Donald Trump.

Ms Kelly retorted she was not fascinated by sex but by who was going to be in the White House.

The Fox News journalist has previously angered Mr Trump for questioning his attitude towards women.

Mr Trump publicly criticised Ms Kelly on a number of occasions after she asked about derogatory remarks he had made - including calling women "fat pigs" - during the Republican primaries in 2015.
