    AP reminds employees to be vigilant after backlash from Sanders supporters

    The Associated Press on Tuesday advised staffers to "practice situational awareness" at their bureaus and offices in the wake of social media pushback from supporters of Bernie Sanders who were angered by its decision to call the Democratic nomination for Hillary Clinton.

    Danny Spriggs, the AP's vice president for global security, notified employees that their colleagues were receiving incensed phone calls, emails and social media messages from Sanders backers but noted that the news cooperative hadn't "received any specific security threats."
