MIT leader calls for in­ves­ti­ga­tion into Epstein ties

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - News -

The president of the Mas­sachusetts In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy has or­dered an in­de­pen­dent in­ves­ti­ga­tion after a re­port about ties be­tween Jef­frey Epstein and a pres­ti­gious re­search lab at the school.

MIT President L. Rafael Reif wrote in a let­ter to the univer­sity com­mu­nity Satur­day that the re­port by The New Yorker about the Me­dia Lab’s ties to Epstein con­tained “deeply dis­turb­ing allegation­s.”

Reif con­firmed that the di­rec­tor of the Me­dia Lab, Joi Ito, has re­signed and that the school will hire a prom­i­nent law firm to in­ves­ti­gate.
