Bomb scare rocks CNN office in New York

CNN's NY headquarters has been evacuated late Thursday night due to a nearby bomb threat.

The show was halted in the middle, forcing CNN to air pre-taped programming.

According to police, someone phoned in a threat stating there were five bombs placed throughout Time Warner Center.

The building was evacuated during Don Lemon's live show. "We grabbed what we could and go out of the building and now we're standing out front there", Lemon said. Police units then swept the building with the NYPD bomb squad on standby.

Authorities are investigating a reported bomb threat at CNN's NY office.

Trump supporter Cesar Sayoc is the suspect in a mail bomb plot to send explosives to senior Democrats and progressives, including the Clintons and billionaire philanthropist George Soros. The NYPD later issued an all-clear and said pedestrian traffic was reopened.

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.

President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter "FAKE NEWS - THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!" as CNN were evacuating their offices during a bomb scare on Thursday December 6, 2018.

"NYPD is going through our building", Lemon said, pointing to police officers lined up down the block, about 100 feet from the entrance of the building. Earlier in the night, Trump had lambasted the "fake news media" on Twitter as well, falsely claiming that reporters don't mention the Republican midterm gains in the Senate.
