Yesterday Murdoch-led companies immediately pounced on the news that the FBI searched Donald Trump's Mar a Lago residence by attacking the DOJ and the FBI on the Fox News airwaves immediately

Then this morning, they used the New York Post to smear the judge who signed off on the warrant.

NY Post headline screamed: Judge who approved FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago once linked to Jeffrey Epstein.

The headline makes it sounds as if Judge Bruce Reinhart was part of Epstein's entourage of sickos preying on underage women, but that's not the case at all.

Instead, they are smearing him for representing "employees of convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein who had received immunity in the long-running sex-trafficking investigation of the financier."

If any link to Epstein or representation of former employees was relevant to Murdoch's cast of propagandists, then why did Fox News continually host Alan Dershowitz to defend Trump against his impeachment trials?

Dershowitz nastily and vociferously represented Epstein and was a frequent guest at his residence.

And then there was this admission from Dersh.

Trump himself was linked to Epstein on multiple levels. Here's an NBC News report about testimony coming from an Epstein victim: Jeffrey Epstein introduced me to Trump at 14, Ghislaine Maxwell accuser says

One of the four women who say they were “groomed” for sex by Ghislaine Maxwell testified Wednesday that the disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein took her to meet Donald Trump when she was just 14.

The Miami Herald (sub req) reported that "logs introduced in the Ghislaine Maxwell trial show Donald Trump flew on Jeffrey Epstein's jet more than was previously reported."

Representing alleged criminals is part of what makes the US justice system work, but for MAGA, Trump is above all laws.

Nobody knows exactly what the search warrant was for, although it appears the FBI was looking for documents.

Yet, that didn't stop the rapid hyperventilation from Fox News and the NY Post from comparing this authorized search by law enforcement to the Twin Towers being rammed by jets.

The do protest too much.
