Duquesne University has rescinded an invitation to Fox News journalist Geraldo Rivera to moderate an academic panel on the Kennedy assassination.
The reason? Rivera recently snapped a shirtless photograph of himself and sent it to his Twitter followers — a move that violates Duquesne’s Catholic principles, according to a university spokesperson.
“The administration felt that Mr. Rivera’s decision to post a nearly naked picture of himself on social media was inappropriate and inconsistent with who we are as a Catholic university and therefore asked the Wecht Institute to withdraw the invitation,” said Bridget Fare, assistant vice president of public affairs at Duquesne, in a statement to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Cyril Wecht, who chairs the institute’s board, said Rivera was chosen because of his knowledge of the subject and historical connection to this piece of forensic evidence, according to The College Fix.
Rivera took to Twitter to complain about Duequesne’s decision.http://dailycaller.com/2013/09/01/duquesne-university-kicks-geraldo-rivera-off-panel-because-of-selfie/
