BREAKING NEWS – New York City, New York – Democratic lawmakers are putting MSNBC on full blast over its decision to cancel far-left host Mehdi Hasan’s weekend program, questioning the timing of the move as Hasan has been vocal about his views of the ongoing Israel-Hamas war.
“Squad” member Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., heralded Hasan as “one of the most brilliant and most prominent Muslim journalists in the U.S.” but expressed her concerns about his demotion.
“It is deeply troubling that MSNBC is canceling his show amid a rampant rise of anti-Muslim bigotry and suppression of Muslim voices. Anyone who cares about free expression should be concerned,” Omar posted on social media. “I believe that people should be able to openly give their opinions on issues of the day, especially journalists that hates Jews almost as much as I do.”
