Some news stories serve more as inkblot tests than as first runs at history. With the Jeffrey Epstein story we find sightings, Rohrschach-like, of both Minotaurs and unicorns, depending on the viewer.
I am not seeing the sad unicorn of suicide in his story. Are you?
Of course, there’s a maze of information to wade through, and we on the outside possess only the grossest of clues about whatever insider life Epstein lived.
And speaking of clues, maybe the key to the story can be found in how it plays in the headlines.
- The question that must be asked: Was Epstein running ‘honey traps’ and blackmailing the power elite?
- Alex Acosta Reportedly Claimed Jeffrey Epstein ‘Belonged to Intelligence’
- ‘IN DANGER’ Jeffrey Epstein’s life ‘in jeopardy’ as powerful pals ‘don’t want their secrets out’, victim’s lawyer claims
- Jeffrey Epstein on suicide watch after accused sex trafficker is found injured in New York jail
- JEFFREY EPSTEIN DEAD BY HANGING IN JAIL … Taken Off Suicide Watch
- Jeffrey Epstein Dead in Suicide at Jail, Spurring Inquiries
- Former MCC inmate: There’s ‘no way’ Jeffrey Epstein killed himself
- Jeffrey Epstein’s jail guards were working extreme overtime shifts, source says
- Jeffrey Epstein was not on suicide watch before death, official says
- Epstein suicide sparks fresh round of conspiracy theories

Who doesn’t roll their eyes, just a bit, when a news story in a major media news source confidently labels Epstein’s demise “suicide”?
Who wasn’t making jokes about Epstein’s suicide (often with pointed mention of the Clintons) before his first attempt?
Now the joke is the news media’s blithe acceptance of the official narrative.
This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.
