Former Journalist Arrested, Charged with Threats against Jewish Facilities

The Washington Post’s Mark Berman and Matt Zapotosky report, “A former journalist allegedly carried out at least some of the recent bomb threats against Jewish institutions across the country, according to the FBI, which described the menacing calls as part of the man’s campaign to harass a woman.” Juan Thompson was arrested on Friday in St. Louis for the threats. The former journalist, who was fired from The Intercept last year for fabricating quotes, is charged with cyberstalking and accused of making at least eight threats to Jewish Community Centers.
