OK...as the Jeffery Epstein scandal heats up so does the British press coverage of Prince Andrew's connection with the CONVICTED pedophile and registered sex offender (finally). But I'd like to know...why is Prince Harry and Meghan's vacation transport fiasco sharing front page coverage with Prince Andrew? I'm sorry, the 'alleged' accusation that Prince Andrew was a willing participant in multiple sexual liaisons with an underage woman trumps the environmental loving Sussexes flying in a private jet. The Prince Andrew story line should be upfront and center.
Also, note the page numbers for the continued coverage of these stories. Harry and Meghan pages 4-5 and Prince Andrew buried a little deeper on pages 12-15.
Although, I can appreciate the hypocrisy surrounding these climate change activist's decision to use private jets while trying to save the climate. (they flew to both Ibiza and France this month). I question why the negative coverage focuses exclusively on the Sussexes rather than shared with the other royals. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Charles have used private jets...all are passionate environmentalists yet, Prince Harry and Meghan are the targets. Why?
And while I'm at it...on August 19th, the Daily Mail featured an article by Guy Adams. Note the language around the Prince Andrew's connection to Epstein.
But the Prince has had a seeming blind spot for the unsavoury aspects of Epstein’s character, as their long, close relationship attests.
Andrew was dragged into Epstein’s grotty orbit during the late 1990s, apparently via his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, who became chummy with Ghislaine Maxwell, the New York-based socialite daughter of disgraced newspaper tycoon Robert.
Are you kidding me?! Epstein was a CONVICTED pedophile when they met. How is that even classified as a 'blind spot?' It's beyond bad judgement. And, I just love how apparently Prince Andrew's ex-wife Sarah Ferguson 'dragged' him into this 'grotty orbit.' COME ON people, he's a big boy. COME ON Daily Mail, you can do better than this.
