On Why the New York Press Avoids Reporting on Jeffrey Epstein

Besides top figures in fashion and finance and science, news business luminaries orbit the protected pedo.

The Hollywood Reporter:

” . . . After serving a 13-month sentence and a subsequent year of house arrest in Palm Beach, Florida, Epstein in late 2010 hosted a dinner party in honor of his friend Prince Andrew at his 71st Street mansion in New York. Among the 15 to 20 guests, the New York Post reported at the time, were Katie Couric, Charlie Rose, Woody Allen, Chelsea Handler and George Stephanopoulos. (A source close to Couric tells THR it was her first and last encounter with Epstein.) Lasagna was served, and Epstein led his guests on a tour of the house; he was wearing jeans and velvet Stubbs & Wootton slippers. Multiple sources say the event was organized by Siegal, who presented it as an opportunity to meet the prince at the largest single-family dwelling in New York City. Given that it was less than two months after Kate Middleton and Prince William’s engagement, interest in the royals was running high. Multiple guests who now decline to speak on the record noted the optics of attending such an event did not raise an eyebrow . . . . “

” . . . it might come as no surprise that the New York media never covered the Epstein story aggressively despite the fact that it happened in its own backyard. It wasn’t until the Miami Herald’s Julie K. Brown wrote a three-part story late last year that the feds launched a new investigation into Epstein, which led to his current arrest and incarceration. A lawyer involved with the case notes, “Those relationships are a big part of the Jeffrey Epstein story of how he evaded justice for all these years.”
