Police investigating telephone bomb threat at CNN offices

Police investigating telephone bomb threat at CNN offices

President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Thursday night to attack the media at the same time a bomb threat was called in to New York City's Time Warner Center, home to the CNN offices, which were evacuated.

"Right now CNN is airing taped programming due to the disruption".

MSNBC anchor Brian Williams interviewed WNYC investigative reporter Jonathan Dienst for the latest. A "comprehensive sweep search" of CNN offices was conducted, police said.

The caller reportedly claimed there were five bombs in the building.

Using Stelter's iPhone to broadcast live, he and Lemon reported on the unfolding event outside CNN's evacuated offices.

Stelter also tweeted that 58th Street outside the company's Columbus Circle headquarters has been closed down by police to traffic.

"At 10:07pm a bomb threat was called into the Time Warner Center and the building was evacuated", the NYPD wrote on Twitter. The tweet does not mention CNN by name, but "fake news" is his go-to description of every mainstream outlet, CNN included.

Just two months ago, bombs were sent to the CNN, as well as top Democrats like Barack Obama and the Clintons.

"Employees have been evacuated and the NYPD is investigating", they added.

The "all clear" was given by police shortly before midnight after several dozen police officers searched the building floor by floor.

In October, CNN's NY headquarters was evacuated after a package containing a crude pipe bomb, which was addressed to ex-Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) chief John Brennan, was found.
