University disinvites photographer

17 Oct, 2014

Syracuse is reported to disinvite Washington Post photographer du Cille, a Pulitzer Prize winner, from a journalism workshop as he had been in Liberia three weeks earlier, more than the 21-day Ebola incubation period. A student is reported to have researched du Cille and discovered the trip and raised concerns, after which provost Eric Spina consulted with health officials and made the call. Du Cille:

It’s a disappointment to me. I’m pissed off and embarrassed and completely weirded out that a journalism institution that should be seeking out facts and details is basically pandering to hysteria.
