Political Journalist Mark Halperin Is Out At MSNBC Amid Sexual Harassment Allegations

A CNN reporter who used to work with former ABC News political director Mark Halperin called it an "open secret" that he engaged in sexual harassment. As for the news media covering these stories, Fox News isn't the only outlet reeling from its own internal strife, for NBC News now has its own to deal with.

The women, who asked to remain anonymous, said they didn't report Halperin's conduct because they feared retribution or were embarrassed.

"During this period, I did pursue relationships with women that I worked with, including some junior to me", said Halperin, who serves as a political analyst on NBC and MSNBC's "Morning Joe". However, Halperin made many decisions about political coverage at ABC News, and had a voice in some critical personnel decisions. The political commentator is now an analyst for NBC News and Bloomberg Television, makes appearances on MSNBC's Morning Joe segment, and is now developing a project with HBO.
