New York Times Board Member Linked to Jeffrey Epstein Claimed He Knew Nothing

He knew nothing. They all knew nothing.

A New York Times board member has issued a public apology for his ties to pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

“I take full responsibility for my error in judgment. I am deeply sorry to the survivors, to the Media Lab, and to the MIT community for bringing such a person into our network,” Joi Ito said in a statement posted to the Media Lab website and titled “My apology regarding Jeffrey Epstein.”

Ito, who is the director of MIT’s prestigious Media Lab, invited Epstein there and visited several of his homes after meeting “through a trusted business friend” at a 2013 conference, Ito said.

“In all of my interactions with Epstein, I was never involved in, never heard him talk about, and never saw any evidence of the horrific acts that he was accused of,” wrote, who has been a New York Times board member since 2012.

All Ito had to do was do the most basic internet search imaginable. Assuming he was really this ignorant.

Ito admitted having knowledge of the MIT gifts and said Epstein invested in his tech startups.
