Duquesne University kicks
Geraldo Rivera off
panel because of ‘selfie’

Daily Caller, by Robby Soave

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 9/2/2013 5:31:17 AM

Duquesne University has rescinded an invitation to Fox News journalist Geraldo Rivera to moderate an academic panel on the Kennedy assassination.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,

#10...Likely Duquesne wisely feared that if Rivera had posted this particular picture of himself...what other pictures might he have also posted?
It would prove to be a major embarrassment if their panel member turned out to be another Anthony Weiner.

I must say, however, that Duquesne exercised rather poor judgment in inviting Rivera in the first place. He is a race hustling self-promoting buffoon.

During OIF Jerry was reporting troop movements. When he asked the "Soldier" for an interview with the "Soldier´s" boss he was instructed to leave. When Jerry persisted, the "Soldier" asked his boss if it would be OK to shoot him. The boss said "yes", the "Soldier" locked and loaded his M-4, and Jerry departed.....rapidly.

Say what you want about Fox News, there just isn´t anything out there any better... but that´s not saying much. I´ll take them over anything else with the understanding that they seek ratings just like everyone else and will compromise good sense if necessary to get it. Besides, it´s up to me to sort it out anyway.
I am no Catholic, never will be, because first, the leaders of the church, mortal sinful men, just like me, think they are infallible. There has only been one infalible person walk this earth. And second, they think scripture comes secondary to the church. Just can´t accept those doctrines, but I also know they aren´t my enemy and are trying to stand up for what´s right. And when they get it right, they should be praised. There is good and evil, and evil should be shunned, shown for what it is and destroyed when possible.
As far as Geraldo, he should never have been invited; he is an egotistical, narcissistic boob that can´t talk about anything without bring himself to the front of the conversation. The pictures he took and posted on the net is just an example of the love he has for himself. They did right by reversing their invitation to him. Good for them.
Now pick someone worthy of that invitation.

7# - I´m with you. But your list needs more names than cutsey Jeanine and Geraldo who is so awful he makes my skin crawl. Just the thought of seeing him with clothes off is enough to make defenestration appealing. Add Juan Williams, Kirsten Powers and all the other sickening members of the "Fox team" which gets worse with every passing day.

I heard that Fox and Fools is replacing MAMA (middle aged Miss America) Gretchen Carlson—and her hideously tight and short skirted clothes chosen in the hopes no one notices her limited smarts — withElizabeth Hasselbeck from The View. Wow. That´s an executive decision that must have been made in a petri dish. Then again, I guess they´ll call it an even exchange. Only show on Fox I still watch is Brett Baier and depending on the panel, I shut that off before the goggle-eyed toady Juan can begin one of his demonstrations of rampant stupidity as he shovels manure for Barack.

#24 Just for grins, look at where Christian scripture comes from. Also, all of the Apostles, especially St. Paul, who never knew Jesus until His ascenscion, were weak, mortal, sinful men who transcended themselves through the saving power of Christ. In fact, Christ picked St. Peter, the weakest of the Apostles, to be his represntative on earth. So, to me, the church leaders have religous authority, but I am free to question it.

#1, Weiner, Spitzer and Jurr-Waldo are three "members" who are up for any panel offered them... sort of a self-disqualification in a way... what serious accredited U. wants them?

Not sure why a university would have a panel discussion, "academic" or otherwise, regarding
the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination. What´s the fascination?

There isn´t anything new that academics can contribute on it.
Why not a review of the JFK administration, and what the "first Catholic U.S. President"
meant to American society and the church? Most of the young students don´t know that.

Guess these pointy-heads (oops!) just wanted to invite some of their own kind who might
bring added publicity, and that´s already been achieved, it would appear.

Next, invite Miley Cyrus and Lindsay Lohan to help explain how JFK would have dated
them as he did certain White House interns.

While lawmakers skip out of Washington for spring break, the Capitol Rotunda is undergoing its first makeover in more than 50 years. With more than 1,300 cracks marring its exterior shell, the rotunda is closed to the public from April 12 through April 28, in phase one of the two-year, $60 million restoration project. During the 17-day closure, workers are installing safety netting around the iconic 8.9 million-pound cast iron dome. "This netting will ensure the safety of all who enter the Capitol for the duration of the two-year project allowing the Rotunda to be accessible for the duration of the project after

Monstrous cruise ships that ruin the view – and even block out the sun – for people strolling down Venice’s Giudecca Canal, will, from the end of November, no longer pass close to the lagoon city, cruise ship owners have pledged. From that date vessels weighing over 96,000 tonnes will eschew the route that currently sees them pass close to St Mark’s Square, while, according to campaigners who want them banned, unleashing huge currents that threatens to undermine Venice’s delicate foundations. The Cruise Lines International Association made the pledge during talks on Thursday with Italy’s Transport and Environment Ministers. The development follows a

President Benjamin Harrison had a crisis. A child had let go of a balloon in the White House, during the Easter Egg roll on April 22, 1889. And we all know how hard it can be to get a balloon down from the corner of a ceiling, lest deal with the child suddenly stripped of a most prized and buoyant plaything. The guests noticed. "Here it remained during the afternoon, and was subject of universal comment as to the best means to be resorted to in order to get it down again," a Washington Post reporter wrote of the day´s

Washington -- When the Bureau of Land Management retreated from a standoff with Cliven Bundy, a few hundred people traveled to his Nevada ranch to protest what they see as an overreach of the federal government. (Snip)Because of the cheap rent, some, including fellow cattlemen who don´t ranch on public lands, call public land ranchers "welfare ranchers" and have no sympathy for the Western lot. But Griggs said they don´t understand that ranching public land is "not a bargain." "On public lands, you might get kicked off at any moment for a turtle. That´s kind of the deal," he said.

President Obama is right. He told Major Garrett of CBS this week that “Mr. Putin’s decisions aren’t just bad for Ukraine. Over the long term, they’re going to be bad for Russia.” I believe that Putin’s adventures in Russia’s “near abroad” are a mistake. Indeed, they are part of a whole tapestry of wrongheadedness. It’s also bad for the Kremlin to crush dissent, censor the news, and hobble the economy by handing it over to oligarchs and a kleptocratic bureaucracy. Putin’s scapegoating and demonizing of gays isn’t only morally wrong, it’s not in Russia’s long-term interests either. That Putin prefers to

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O.

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist
