Pre-election Scandals Disappear Down Media Rabbit Hole
Where’d everybody go?
Whatever happened to the Jeffrey Epstein case? Traces of the Durham Report, which was investigating those who manufactured the story of Russian interference in the 2016 election, seem to have also disappeared from view. Or what about Hunter Biden? His laptop full of secrets and the possible corrupt practices of his father, presidential candidate Joe Biden, are fast fading from memory.
Let’s look closer at these disappearing stories, for in doing so, we’re likely to untangle a common thread between them and the current election limbo.
In mid-October, CNBC reported that Ghislaine Maxwell, an associate of Epstein accused of procuring underage girls for sex with Epstein and his cronies, stated under oath, “I never observed Jeffrey having sex with a minor.” A coy reply, that. But what about details on the rich and the famous, like Bill Clinton, who traveled to Epstein’s “Orgy Island?”
Just as interesting in this CNBC article is how the writer, Dan Mangan, slants the news. “Epstein had socialized for years with wealthy and powerful people,” Mangan writes, “including Donald Trump and Bill Clinton, as well as with Britain’s Prince Andrew.” What Mangan fails to mention is that unlike Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew, Donald Trump paid no visits to Epstein’s island of sleaze.
Attorney General Bill Barr told the American people in mid-October that the Justice Department’s review of the Russian hoax would not be available until after this year’s election. The election at the moment remains in stasis, but we might ask: Where’s the report? And why the silence surrounding it?
If we Google “Hunter Biden laptop,” we find a few reports from early November. Many of these pieces seem more bent on destroying this story than investigating it. “Move along, folks,” is the watchword. “Nothing to see here.” And so we get headlines like this one from Politico: “How ‘Obamagate’ and Hunter’s ‘laptop from hell’ fizzled.” Did the story fizzle or did the press simply disappear it down the rabbit hole?
Now we are mired in an election corrupted by fraud and vote tampering. Few dispute that some voting irregularities occurred, but Democrats and some Republicans are now insisting that President Trump and his team stop poking their noses into the vote count and move on for the good of the country.
There’s that rabbit hole again.
So what do all of these stories have in common?
In a word, corruption.
