Gates denied he had any friendship or business relationship with Epstein, but that was before investigative reporters from NBC News that the two met many times, at Epstein's home and on his jet.
One of the missions of the Gates Foundation is to raise the status of young women in 3rd world countries. One of the missions of Jeffrey Epstein was to kidnap young women in 3rd world countries and press them into sex slavery. Could there be any legitimate reason for Gates to be raising money for Epstein?
This story aired last year on NBC News and the NYTimes ran one piece. But it fell into the memory hole, with no follow-up. 6 months on, Gates is a darling of the media and a trusted source of health advice. It's testimony to how money can tell MSM what to report on or, more important, what not to report on.
