Five women, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told CNN Mark Halperin propositioned them or touched them inappropriately.
NBC News terminated its contract with senior political analyst Mark Halperin following allegations that he sexually harassed a dozen women during his tenure at ABC News.
An NBC News spokesperson confirmed the termination Monday shortly before Eleanor McManus, one of Halperin’s accusers, appeared on the network’s “Megyn Kelly Today.”
Halperin has been off the air since the Wednesday report on CNN that women who worked at ABC News claimed they had been subjected to harassment, inappropriate physical contact or sexual assault by Halperin while he was political director from 1997 to 2007. A second report on Friday had detailed accounts from a total of a dozen women.
Hollywood is not happy with Kevin Spacey's response to "Star Trek: Discovery" actor Anthony Rapp's allegations that the Oscar-winning actor made an unwanted sexual advance on him when Rapp was 14 years old.
"I honestly do not remember the encounter, it would have been over 30 years ago. But if I did behave then as he describes, I owe him the sincerest apology for what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behavior, and I am sorry for the feelings he describes having carried with him all these years," Spacey said in an official statement Sunday night.
Spacey's statement also confirmed that the notoriously private actor is gay, which did not sit well with celebs and LGBTQ organizations. Many saw that as a craven attempt to shift attention from the issue at hand: the accusations of predatory behavior toward a minor.

I'm very lucky in that my career has never gotten to the point that I could sit back and rest on my laurels and buy a big boat or a plane and get fat. I've always had to stay reasonably lean and mean if I wanted to continue working.
Kevin Spacey on Sunday evening issued a public apology to "Star Trek: Discovery" actor Anthony Rapp, who claimed that the "American Beauty" Oscar winner made an unwanted sexual advance on him in 1986. Rapp was 14 years old at the time. Spacey would have been 26.
In the statement, Spacey said he chooses "now to live as a gay man."
Rapp, 46, came forward with his allegation in a BuzzFeed article published Sunday evening. The piece described an encounter with the older actor that transpired when he was a teen working on Broadway in New York.
Rape is a wound that throbs long after it heals. And for some of us the throbbing gets too loud. Post-traumatic stress syndrome is very real and chips away at the soul and sanity of so many of us who have survived sexual violence.
If there’s one (fictional) queen saying "YAS" to news of Olivia Colman joining the cast of “The Crown” for seasons 3 and 4 as Queen Elizabeth II, it’s Claire Foy.
Foy, who played the key role for the first two seasons, had known from the start that her time on the Netflix drama about the British monarch's long reign would be brief. Series creator Peter Morgan had always intended to replace key cast members in later seasons as the characters aged.
Colman, whose other credits include the U.K. drama “Broadchurch” and AMC’s “The Night Manager,” will now take the crown, the Los Angeles Times confirmed. And her predecessor approves.
