The arrest of Ghislaine Maxwell (July 2) as an accessory to the crimes of Jeffrey Epstein provides us an opportunity to take a quick look back at the integrity and dependability of some quite recent stories.
She was reportedly hiding out at an estate in New Hampshire.
Ghislaine Maxwell was hiding out in a luxury home on a 156-acre estate in New Hampshire — where she fled to a bedroom when the feds rang the bell at the gate ahead of her arrest, The Post has learned. —New York Post (July 2)
That report seems reliable. However, on June 21, less than two weeks ago, The New York Post reported:
Ghislaine Maxwell reportedly hiding from the feds in plush Paris apartment
Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged “madame,” Ghislaine Maxwell, has reportedly fled to her native France.
The socialite on the run has bunkered down in a plush Paris apartment as the FBI investigates her connection to the billionaire convicted pedophile and alleged sex trafficker, The Sun reported Saturday.
That seems odd. A New York newspaper had fallen for a false story a mere two weeks ago?! Nothing gets by the New York press. Of course, in defense of the New York Post, it was merely citing The Sun as a source.
Yet the story seemed plausible, as The Sun had an outside photo shot of her hideaway, even giving the street address as “Avenue Matignon, in Paris’s exclusive 8th Arrondissement.” Everything but her phone number. more here
