All clear after bomb threat forces evacuation of CNN offices

All clear after bomb threat forces evacuation of CNN offices

CNN offices in NY have again been evacuated because of a phoned-in bomb threat, though the police have issued an all-clear message.

Two NYPD officers told BuzzFeed that the bomb threat was phoned in exactly one minute before President Trump tweeted: "FAKE NEWS - THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!"

The New York Police Department said in a statement that at around 10:07 p.m. a bomb threat was made against the Time Warner Center.

The area - around 59th Street and Central Park West in midtown Manhattan - was closed to vehicle and pedestrian traffic while authorities investigate, police said, adding that a bomb squad had been called in. When programming returned, a taped version of Anderson 360 began broadcasting.

The call came in about 10 p.m., and the news network briefly switched to pre-tapped programming, before cutting to live shots of newscasters, employees and onlookers standing behind police barricades outside the building. But police later said there was no evidence of any explosives inside the building, the station reported.

One of those mail bombs was sent to the CNN office in NY. CNN host Don Lemon tweeted, "We were evacuated in the middle of my live show" due to a bomb threat.

Several fire alarm bells rang inside CNN's NY newsroom, signaling an evacuation shortly after 10:30 p.m. It is unclear whether the threat was directed at CNN or another location close by.

Brian Stelter also tweeted about the interruption.

The one sent to the CNN was addressed to former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan, who is a contributor to MSNBC and NBC News but has no relation to CNN.
