Palestine Advocates Decry MSNBC’s Cancellation Of Mehdi Hasan News Show

Channel president says change aims to put network in ‘better position’ for the 2024 US elections, The Hill reports.

Washington, DC – MSNBC has canceled Mehdi Hasan’s weekend TV program, sparking anger from many Palestinian rights supporters who consider the progressive host a rare critic of Israeli policies on United States cable news.

The decision, first reported by the news website Semafor on Thursday, came amid what advocates describe as a crackdown on criticism against Israel in the media, at universities and in the arts. The country is currently conducting a military offensive in Gaza that has killed more than 15,000 Palestinians, prompting human rights concerns.
