CNN offices evacuated after bomb threat, no explosive found

CNN’s New York Office Evacuates Over Bomb Threat

CNN's NY studio was evacuated Thursday night in response to a bomb threat, according to one of its star anchormen.

"The Fake News hates me saying that they are the Enemy of the People only because they know it's TRUE", he tweeted in August.

A police official said that an unsubstantiated phone threat was made to the Time Warner Building claiming there were five bombs present, and building security ordered an evacuation as a precaution.

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.

Fire alarm bells rang inside the newsroom to signal an evacuation shortly after 10:30 pm, CNN said on its website, as the network went to pre-taped programming.
