#1 I don't believe a word. Why would Epstein converse about these things with James B Stewart of all people ? In his piece about the interview, Stewart describes Epstein as an oversharing, loose lipped lech who keeps steering the dialog toward controversy. Was he talking him into sharing a room with a damsel, hoping to hook a Pulitzer winning NYT writer ? What purpose did such talk serve ? He makes him sound more like John McAfee than the operator Epstein was. And for no reason slanders Elon Musk in the process. Anything can be reported now, that the horse is dead.

#2 Article author might be full of horse chips but I don't doubt the gist of it one bit.

#3 dron, James Stewart is a credible source: a low-key, serious journalist who plays it straight and who has a long history of solid, in depth reporting on Wall Street figures (Stewart himself is a former Wall Street, white shoe lawyer).

Stewart does not oversell. His tone is skeptical, neutral, balanced. He characterizes everything clearly and with proper qualifications: "Epstein seemed... my impression ... he claimed, said, stated ..."

Stewart does not assert that Epstein has dirt. He reports Epstein's claims, and merely suggests that these claims line up with "one of my [Stewart's] first thoughts... that many prominent men and at least a ew women must be breathing sighs of relief that whatever Epstein knew, he has taken it with him..."

#4 Hmmm... his book Tangled Webs is certainly informative. I'm ordering it. Thanks.
