C-SPAN Alerts FBI on Caller Who Threatened CNN Hosts Don Lemon and Brian Stelter.
C-SPAN on Monday said it has reported to the FBI a caller on its Washington Journal program who threatened to shoot CNN anchor Don Lemon and host Brian Stelter. “They started the war. If I see ’em, I’m going to shoot ’em. Bye,” said the man, who claimed to be from State College, Pennsylvania. C-SPAN said it passed the information to the FBI and cooperated with CNN security. When the threats were made, the C-SPAN host did not hear them, and thus allowed them to air, the network claimed in its statement.
