We no longer have Jeffrey Epstein around due to his highly coincidental and suspicious suicide, or as Hillary calls it, Tuesday house cleaning. We do, though, have the ghost of Epstein materializing at least weekly.
ABC Studios felt his presence most recently.
ABC’s Amy Robach spoke frankly about an unaired story on Epstein that she helped develop. The news piece included connections to Bill Clinton and adventures involving the Lolita Express and Orgy Island.
“It was going to be impactful. Even more so than our seven-part series on Trump’s selfish approach to ice cream scoops”, she recounted when discussing how ABC News killed the story in 2015.
In their defense, ABC stated that
“not all of the reporting met our standards to air. There wasn’t even any video evidence, DNA, polygraph corroboration, confession, or live occurrence at a Super Bowl halftime show.”
ABC also pointed out how busy they were in 2015. “Our priority at the time was a collaborative retrospective with The Weinstein Company on Roman Polansky’s creative genius.”
Following this explanation, Robach appeared to have had a recent head trauma incident. When asked about the 2015 events, she responded: “who’s this Epstein you keep speaking of?”
If it was about standards, one would expect a consistent approach to all ABC reporting. Hence the word “standard.” Say for instance, how they chose to cover the Epstein/Clinton connection compared to Brett Kavanaugh’s coverage during the combined Supreme Court hearings and witch-burning rituals.
A cursory review of ABC’s almost 7000 news items on Kavanaugh, revealed standards as flexible as the personalities of James McAvoy’s “Split” character.
Each accuser’s indictments were thoroughly documented as ABC took the country through five of Dante’s nine levels of purgatory, otherwise known as open hearings.
To give you an idea of how serious they were about standards during those hearings, here’s an actual ABC headline:
In the end, though, that witch hunt did result in the discovery of witches.
