MSNBC cut an interview with Roger Stone, an ally of GOP front-runner Donald Trump, from its airing of the show "With All Due Respect," Media Matters reported Tuesday.
A spokesperson from MSNBC confirmed the network has banned Stone, a political consultant, from appearing, the publication reported. "With All Due Respect" airs on both Bloomberg TV and MSNBC. The interview with Stone, conducted by Bloomberg's Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, aired during Bloomberg's version of the show at 5 p.m. on Monday.
The interview lasted about 10 minutes. Stone talked about Trump's campaign and addressed his calls for convention protests.
But when the show then played on MSNBC at 6 p.m., the network cut to "breaking news" of a rally with Republican presidential candidate John Kasich. It also cut out a tease of the Stone interview.

CNN banned Stone from appearing on its network in February, after he tweeted negative comments about CNN contributors. READ MORE
