MSNBC Forced to Cancel Show of Pro-Hamas Host Mehdi Hasan as Ratings Plummet

MSNBC has been forced to cancel the show of far-left host Mehdi Hasan due to plummeting ratings on the network.

Mehdi Hasan will, however, remain with MSNBC as the network’s “analyst.”

But leftists weren’t happy about Hasan’s show being canceled.

According to Politico, “progressive lawmakers, activists and advocacy groups voiced their outrage Thursday at MSNBC’s decision to cancel a show hosted by Medhi Hasan, claiming that the network was seeking to silence one of its most prominent Muslim on-air personalities.

“It is bad optics for MSNBC to cancel @mehdirhasan’s show right at a time when he is vocal for human rights in Gaza with the war ongoing,” Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) posted on X, formerly Twitter.

“As a strong supporter of free speech, MSNBC owes the public an explanation for this decision. Why would they choose to do this now?”

FOX News reports:

MSNBC has canceled far-left host Mehdi Hasan’s Sunday night program as part of a major weekend programming shift.

Hasan will lose his weekend show and his show on the Peacock streaming service but will stay on the network as an on-camera analyst and fill-in host.

Ayman Mohyeldin will take over Hasan’s one-hour Sunday program as he expands his weekend footprint.

Known as one of the more pugnacious liberal media figures in cable news, Hasan joined MSNBC in 2020 after stints at Al Jazeera and the hard-left site The Intercept.

Hasan’s cancelation comes on the heels of inflammatory remarks he made in 2009, long before becoming an MSNBC personality, circulating online last weekend when New York Post reporter Jon Levine unearthed them. However, it doesn’t appear the two are related.

Hasan compared non-Muslims to “animals” and linked homosexuals to “pedophiles” and “sexual deviants.”

In 2019, Hasan apologized for those comments, calling them “dumb offensive ranty stuff” and admitted that he said “extreme-sounding things” as a young man.

Hasan has been one of the strongest critics of Israel in the mainstream media during the ongoing Israel-Hamas war, and he is known for his strident social media commentary and clashes with conservatives and other political foes.

To add more irony to the news, Hasan has been predicting the end of TwitterX.
