For two years, I wrote reviews of the old Spy magazine, usually once a month. Those reviews have been completed.

When Vicky Ward profiled Jeffrey Epstein for Vanity Fair, allegations of his attempted seduction of two young sisters were excised from the final piece.
Jeffrey Epstein’s Latest Accuser Is an Artist Who Claims the Billionaire Sex Offender Lured Her in With Promises to Help Her Career
When Maria Farmer met Epstein at her art opening in 1995, he dangled his powerful connections—and asked for a discount.
The fallout from the Saturday arrest of Jeffrey Epstein continues to grow—and the latest allegations touch the art world.
Already a registered sex offender, the billionaire has been charged with sex trafficking and using his fortune to create “a vast network of underage victims for him to sexually exploit.” Among the latest accusations are those made by 49-year-old Maria Farmer, who, in an affidavit filed in April, claims that Epstein leveraged her dreams of becoming an artist to lure her into his web. She says that Epstein went on to sexually assault both her and her younger sister, who was 15 at the time.
In 1986, Carter and Andersen founded Spy,
Jeffrey Epstein allegations
In 2003 Carter assigned Vanity Fair journalist Vicky Ward to write a profile of self-identified “financier” Jeffrey Epstein. During the course of her reporting, Ward became aware of sex abuse and trafficking allegations against Epstein, later stating that almost all of her sources mentioned “the girls, as an aside.” In her 2015 Daily Beast article “I Tried to Warn You About Sleazy Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein in 2003”, written following Epstein’s conviction in Florida, Ward revealed that she had interviewed the family of two young sisters and discovered credible reports of molestation against Epstein, but according to Ward, the allegations were removed from the piece by then-editor Carter:
“It came down to my sources’ word against Epstein’s… and at the time Graydon believed Epstein. In my notebook I have him saying, ‘I believe him… I’m Canadian.'”
For his part, Carter said in 2019, following Epstein’s indictment in New York, that the reporting was removed from the published version of the story because “In the end, we didn’t have confidence in Ward’s reporting.”
In a special post today, The Slog sifts the evidence surrounding the verdict of suicide to explain Jeffrey Epstein’s death. The motive behind his arrest, detention and death may well have been clouded by deliberate media obsession with the celebrity sex aspect of the case. Epstein was probably arrested to embarrass Donald Trump. But he is probably dead as a result of his intelligence knowledge, not his modus operandum.
with Epstein its a Watch and Listen til the fat lady sings like a canary.
Interesting Graphic from Ryan Dawson in this article of his.
Ryan is a very intelligent Guy who hs made some very good documentaries, Some people, including me, think he is anti-Semitic, He is a very good analyst though in spite of his obvious prejudices, which I do not share my sympathies lie with the Far left of Israeli politics, Epstein’s connections to Israel are pretty obvious and I agree that its a better than 50% chance that he has puölled an Assisted Lord Lucan, Reggie Perrin with the ais of The CIA/Mossad/Mi6 Imperial Zionist crime Gang.
Mike James is another Anti Semite who again has revealed some startling and unpleasant facts about the Kakistocratic Brightest and besters.
Mike James is again a good analyst but again hols you nose if Anti Semitism offends you, which it does me.
Finally, criticism of the State of Israel and Political Zionist project is not Anti Semitism. Zionism has absolutely nothing to do with Judaism either but I do not feel the need to argue the Theology on that with Zionists who quite often are neither Jewish or indeed religious.

Epstein is a sort of portal into a parallel universe of unimaginable perversion sleaze and corruption.
His equivalent in the UK was Jimmy Saville in many respects he certainly carried out similar functions.
