"We are now searching the entire building".

"Basically the police are telling us it was an unsubstantiated telephone threat to the Time Warner Center", Dienst reported. It is unclear whether the threat was directed at CNN or another location close by.

In October, the building was partially evacuated after a suspicious package containing a crude pipe bomb was delivered to the company. The tweet does not mention CNN by name, but "fake news" is his go-to description of every mainstream outlet, CNN included.
