NEW YORK (AP) — MSNBC’s Mehdi Hasan says he’s quitting the network rather than accept a demotion. The prominent Muslim journalism announced his exit on the final edition of his weekly hour on Sunday night. The network eliminated Hasan’s show without explanation during a November schedule shuffle, but said then he would stay on as an analyst and fill-in anchor. The elimination of his show drew protests and a fruitless petition drive from some liberal advocates. Hasan, who previously worked at Al Jazeera English and the Intercept, offered no immediate details on what he would do next.
