Fox News is standing with its rival cable news network after a bomb scare forced CNN’s New York headquarters to be evacuated this morning.
The Hollywood Reporter obtained an internal memo sent out by Fox News head of HR Kevin Lord addressing the bomb scare and detailing how Fox News is responding.
“We wanted to take this opportunity to inform you that Fox News is taking ample precautions on the security front in our New York headquarters given the suspicious package found at CNN this morning,” Lord’s memo says, according to THR. “We condemn all attempted acts of violence against media organizations and our thoughts are with CNN for the safety of all of their employees.”
The memo adds: “We have met with our security team and are treating this with extra vigilance. All of the usual security protocols are already in place, some of which include roving patrols around the perimeter of the building, along with every incoming package being x-rayed and screened, which is a precaution taken by our mailroom on a daily basis.”
