It’s great that journalists have discovered a newfound zeal for investigative reporting under President Trump, who was elected in no small part thanks to the endless, ratings-friendly media coverage he received from the moment he announced his candidacy. All the better if it helps bring about some long-overdue justice for Epstein’s victims, the real heroes of this story.

Instead of patting themselves on the back and basking in the professional glow of Julie Brown’s hard work, or roaming the Capitol building asking random GOP congressmen if they think Acosta should resign, our national media might themselves start digging into the Epstein story, to which terms like “conspiracy” and “collusion” seem slightly more applicable than to anything that happened between the Trump campaign and Russia.
