“MSNBC, where Mr. Halperin was an analyst on the influential show ‘Morning Joe,’ said he would no longer serve as a contributor. HBO dropped a planned television adaptation of Mr. Halperin’s upcoming book about the 2016 presidential election. And by Thursday evening, his publisher, Penguin Press, said in a statement that it had canceled plans for the book entirely, ‘in light of the recent news.’”
At his ABC stint, Halperin said through a spokesman: “During this period, I did pursue relationships with women that I worked with, including some junior to me. I now understand from these accounts that my behavior was inappropriate and caused others pain.
“For that, I am deeply sorry and I apologize. Under the circumstances, I’m going to take a step back from my day-to-day work while I properly deal with this situation.”
Other coverage and commentary:
Ailes, O'Reilly, Weinstein, Halperin were some of our culture's key storytellers, shaping our ideas of gender, authority, power & much more.

We’re being told Halperin’s behavior was “open secret.”
Did @JoeNBC know?
Did @morningmika know?
Probably gunna take civil suits to know.

In less than 24 hrs, NBC, MSNBC, Washington Speakers’s Bureau, HBO…have all run away from Halperin like toxic waste. The Weinstein effect. https://t.co/mFSfjMfIBa

Mika Brzezinski called Mark Halperin "our friend" but she was sure Hillary Clinton knew about Harvey Weinstein. Weird how that works out.

Have we sufficiently discussed that Mark Halperin's show on Bloomberg TV was called "With All Due Respect"?

No one's surprised that the same NBC that killed the Weinstein story still hasn't fired Halperin.
But lecture us more about Fox News!

Mark Halperin now has a resume which should qualify him for a spot on @FoxNews
