LEWISBURG, Pa. — Bucknell University is responding again after prominent alum, longtime CBS chief executive Les Moonves, has stepped down.

Moonves’ resignation comes after new claims of sexual misconduct.

Moonves delivered the commencement address at Bucknell in 2016. In response to initial allegations in July, Bucknell removed references to him from its website. The university has also removed his name from a prominent room.

At its next meeting, the board of trustees will consider rescinding an honorary degree.

In a statement on Monday, the university said: “The actions described in new reports concerning Les Moonves are unconscionable. They stand in direct conflict with the values that form the foundation of what it means to be a Bucknellian.”

    Clearly the administrators at Bucknell don’t understand the literature they teach. In Orwell’s “1984”, vaporization of a person, making him/her/they an “unperson” is indicted. Yet this seems to be the new normal, especially in academia. However did we get to be here?
