Former White House communications director Anthony ScaramucciAnthony ScaramucciWhite House announces changes in press office Scaramucci’s wife says he’s trying not to ‘blab’ White House secrets on ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ White House press aide Raj Shah joining lobbying firm MORE previewed his upcoming news site in an interview Sunday, billing it as a centrist alternative to left- and right-wing media outlets.

In an interview on AM 970 in New York, the ousted Trump aide told host John Catsimatidis that his publication, "The Scaramucci Post," will represent the "center lane" in American politics.

"The center lane is wide open," Scaramucci said. "What The Scaramucci Post is going to represent is a center lane."

"I do think that we are living in a society where we are very polarized. We are getting our news screeched into us, John," he added. "From the right and from the left."

Scaramucci made similar remarks earlier this week in a video posted to Twitter detailing the site, which he said would focus on what is "right and wrong," not left or right in politics.

"The Scaramucci Post is going to be about what is right and wrong in the society right now, as opposed to what is left and right," he said. "It's left an opportunity to be in the center lane, discussing what the American people — what's going on in the society and how we can make the society better."

"Scaramucci Post is going to be about moderation, but our tagline is going to be 'Everything in moderation — including moderation," he added in the video.

Scaramucci was ousted from his White House role in late July after just 10 days leading the communications shop. The Trump aide caught flak for comments he made about other White House officials in a profanity-laced interview with New Yorker reporter Ryan Lizza before his firing.

On Sunday, Scaramucci accused the reporter of trying to make him look "unhinged."

"I am not shirking responsibility for the conversation. I own every word of the conversation," Scaramucci said.

"The only thing I would say is that he wrote the story in a very bombastic way and tried to make me look unhinged. But, in fact, when you listen to the recording, it is a very normal conversation. But it is still with a little bit of neighborhood conversation or, as the president would say, 'Locker-room talk.'"
