Everyone from Vanity Fair is full of sh*t regarding #Epstein and Ghislane Maxwell, and is trying to cover up their Epstein victim catch-and-kill, a thread:

1/ VF reporter Vicky Ward and Party Circuit Gal pal Ghislane Maxwell:
2/ Vicky Ward, in 2015, crying in the Daily Beast about how traumatic it was to not be able to run the reporting on Epstein's child rape victims.

The storyline: Graydon said #Epstein was sensitive about "the young women" (no mention of severed cat heads)
3/ Here's Vicky Ward defending her buddies #Epstein and #Maxwell when stories started popping up again in 2011:

"So what to make of the current fuss over Ghislaine? Full disclosure: I like her. Most people in New York do. It’s almost impossible not to."
4/ ...Ward continues to wax on the positive qualities of #Epstein pimp #Maxwell

She is always the most interesting, the most vivacious, the most unusual person in any room. I’ve spent hours talking to her about the Third World (...) She is as passionate as she is knowledgeable
5/ As for the child rape victims:

Well, they're just "prostitutes" and now there is another set that has come forward with "allegations"
6/ And, unlike her sob story in 2015, in Ward's 2011 blog post, she "heard stories about the girls" but "didn't quite know who to believe" so Ward concentrated on the "intriguing (Epstein) financial mystery instead"
7/ As for Jeffery Epstein, she's gotten to know him a lot better since 2003, and she finds that "Epstein does know a lot about a lot of things. Just a few moments in his company and you know this to be true." (being a pimp/rapist is okay, if you're good at cocktail banter)
8/ "Sure, Jeffrey had his sexual peccadilloes...and habits"
9/ So what to "make over the current fuss", Vicky Ward writes in 2011...her friends like Bill #Clinton will help make sure "she'll be out and about like always"
10/ And funny enough, here's Vicky Ward tweeting the essentially the same thing about Ghislane Maxwell remaining free from prosecution on Aug. 21, 2019...this time it's via a bullshit legal angle...vs. her sparkling personality and #Clinton connections in 2011
11/ As for "the bullet": In the 2015 Daily Beast article, the bullet came from Graydon Carter, who was "taking out the women (underage rape victims) from the piece" because "(#Epstein's) sensitive about the young women".
12/ Whereas, in Aug 2019, the "bullet" was found outside of Graydon's doorstep.

Yep. These a**holes are too lazy to even make something original up. They're just reappropriating metaphors from their past coverup stories and extending them out further...

npr.org/2019/08/22/753…
13/ Pretending this is real for a moment...is there a police report about the live bullet? Or the dead cat? And if you're a celebrity editor of a national magazine in a room full of reporters, wouldn't this be somewhat "newsworthy"?
14/ Oh wait, and there's a fourth (fifth?) explanation out there that contradicts the other three (four?) already mentioned..this one from Graydon Carter himself, that there weren't three sources in the story to meet Vanity Fair's "legal threshold"
15/ Which the NPR reporter points out, contradicts the fact that Ward spoke to three sources in 2002 for the story:

npr.org/2019/08/22/753…
16/ NPR also seems to be catching on to the contradictions at this point, reporting: "Yet, in that 2011 essay, Ward described #Epstein's sex with minors as peccadilloes, and she actively defended #Maxwell."
17/ And here's VF reporter, Micael Wolff, coaching Epstein on how to refer to child rape: “when (#Epstien's) troubles began, he was talking to me and said, ‘What can I say, I like young girls.’ I said, ‘Maybe you should say, ‘I like young women.’ ”

18/ And, as a columnist for Vanity Fair, why wouldn't you try and help out the guy who was flying you around on his private jet. No compromise of journalistic ethics here.

(And not a severed cat head in sight)
