Trump supporter was arrested after threatening to kill CNN employees, WGCL-TV reported Monday.
A Michigan man, who is unnamed in the CBS report, reportedly called CNN 22 times about a week ago.
“Fake news. I’m coming to gun you all down,” the man told a CNN operator, according to court documents obtained by WGCL-TV.
The FBI launched an investigation and arrested the man over the threats.
Donald Trump has repeatedly attacked the media, including CNN, calling coverage of himself and his administration “fake news.” The network was among the winners of Trump’s “Fake News Awards” last week.
The president also retweeted out an edited GIF of him wrestling a man with the CNN logo superimposed on his head, as well as an image of Trump with what appeared to the CNN logo in a splatter of blood on the bottom of his shoe.
Journalists have criticized Donald Trump’s attacks on the media, and warning that him lashing out against the press could lead to actual acts of violence against reporters.
