      Even weirder to think they would simply do their job.

        BBC News report contained a large amount of archive footage of a young Trump whispering comments to a giggling Epstein.

        It all looks suss.

          But a great guy.

          Or something.

          I believe the corollary is "guilty by association"

          (or whatever is the antithesis of "and the pig got up and slowly walked away")

            Channel 4 News noticeably didn't name the "British woman" involved just now. Does anyone know why that might be given how well publicised her association with Epstein has been?

              They appear to have decided that it isn't worth the relatively small risk, given the threats of libel actions they (and everyone else) have no doubt received. I would expect that they think that they would ultimately win, but might not get costs, and would prefer not to be out of pocket for their defence.

              The libel laws in England and Wales (and the legal infrastructure that has grown up around them) really have a material chilling effect on the news you receive compared to the rest of the world.

                So that's why the otf glitterati are talking about the Earl of Inverness.


                It all becomes clear.

                  And yet the news media rejected a sensible compromise to de-chill libel because it would have meant redress fur victims of tabloid cuntery

                    Of course not

                      Anyone wearing real fur should be redressed.

                              If I were the unnamed British woman, and/or related to someone who also once very conveniently fell off a boat, I would be exceedingly careful about what and where I was eating over the next few months.

                                  A lot of rich-guys-awaiting-trial get to post bond and await trial in the comfort of their rich-guy homes.

                                      If you had to bet on which of Team Trump, Team Clinton, Team UK Royal Family or suicide caused his death, I think you might as well just roll a tetrahedral die.

                                        The following BBC report includes the name Ghislaine Maxwell:- https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-49305967

                                          She's named on the C4 News website in relation to the release of the court documents. That's why the "British woman" thing on tonight's broadcast programme seemed odd. Not identifying her is potentially confusing given that anyone following the story knows who it is. If not a product of extreme caution as ursus suggested, it is sloppy scripting.

                                            That pattern suggests to me that they have been in receipt of evolving legal advice (perhaps as her name became more widely disseminated in the UK) and/or were waiting for senior management to make a risk judgement that hadn't arrived at the time of the script.

                                              I was sure the Guardian had named her previously (like weeks back), but mibees naw.
