MSNBC Cancels Mehdi Hasan’s Show And Streaming Series: Reports

 MSNBC is reportedly canceling the weekend show of radical opinion host Mehdi Hasan as it looks to shake things up with a new lineup.

The far-left network announced the move to staff on Thursday morning, Semafor reported, adding that Hasan will now become “an on-camera analyst and fill-in host.” Hasan’s Peacock streaming series is also coming to an end.

The network will launch a new show called “The Weekend” on Saturdays and Sundays and make other changes to take over Hasan’s time slot. The changes are effective January 13, 2024.

Deadline reported that the show will be hosted by liberal Republican Michael Steele, former Biden administration official Symone Sanders-Townsend, and Alicia Menendez, whose father, Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ), is under federal criminal investigation over an alleged foreign bribery scheme.

“The Weekend will provide thoughtful analysis and coverage from three trusted voices familiar to the MSNBC audience,” the network said in a press release. “The program will deliver in-depth commentary and thought-provoking conversations on the state of democracy, particularly as the 2024 presidential election kicks off. It will also feature interviews with newsmakers, including reporters, thought leaders and politicians.”

Hasan frequently attacks Israel and has gone as far as to defend anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaigns.

Hasan, who previously worked for Qatari propaganda network Al Jazeera, has compared non-Muslims to “animals” and homosexuals to “pedophiles.”

Hasan has also repeatedly defended notorious anti-Semites like Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Israeli advisor Mark Regev slammed Hasan during an interview earlier this month for promoting “disinformation” on his show, claiming that Israel had turned down a deal to have hostages freed.


“Sorry, Mehdi, that’s just disinformation,” Regev said. “There was not a real option for a deal before the grand operation. It was looked at seriously but Hamas put nothing on the table that could be worked with and so that’s just not correct to say there was an option.”

Regev also blasted Hasan for not informing his audience that the Gaza Health Ministry is controlled by the Hamas terrorist group and that the information it releases is largely considered to be propaganda.

“You have to say the ‘Hamas-controlled Gaza Health Ministry,” Regev said, prompting Hasan to lash out: “I don’t have to say what you ask me to say.”

“Please, tell the viewers the truth, that information is provided by Hamas,” Regev said.
