NBC, MSNBC cut ties with Mark Halperin

NBC News and MSNBC have severed ties with “Game Change” co-author and veteran journalist Mark Halperin, days after multiple women told CNN he sexually harassed or assaulted them during his time at ABC News.

An MSNBC spokesman told CNN on Monday morning that Halperin’s contract with both had been terminated.

Halperin had served as an NBC News senior political analyst and MSNBC contributor, and was a frequent guest on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
