Geraldo Rivera Attributes Cancellation of University Appearance to Censorship

On the heels of his cancelled Duquesne University appearance, Geraldo Rivera took to Twitter on Monday to call censorship. The Fox News correspondent was uninvited on Friday to speak at an upcoming university panel about John F. Kennedy’s assassination in light of the 50th anniversary of the president’s death.

The reason for the “censorship”? The journalist’s lack of self-censorship. Rivera tweeted a racy photo of himself standing half-naked in front of a mirror with nothing but a low-hanging towel around his waist. Duquesne spokeswoman Bridget Fare told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette his actions contradicted the Catholic school’s values.

“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,” Fare told the local paper. “We warn our students not to put anything inappropriate on social media because of potential consequences — you could consider this teaching by example.”
