BBC Apologizes for Having Alan Dershowitz on to Discuss Ghislane Maxwell Despite His Connection to Case

On Wednesday, socialite and former partner of Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell, was found guilty on 5 of the six charges leveled against her. With Epstein’s connections to influential people, the verdict was the lead story on every news channel.

The BBC had Alan Dershowitz on to discuss the legal ramifications of the case. The problem is that Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre has accused Dershowitz of sexually assaulting her. Today, the BBC apologized for having the lawyer appear on their network.

The broadcasting giant wrote in a statement:

“Last night’s interview with Alan Dershowitz after the Ghislaine Maxwell verdict did not meet the BBC’s editorial standards, as Mr. Dershowitz was not a suitable person to interview as an impartial analyst, and we did not make the relevant background clear to our audience. We will look into how this happened.”

Fox News also had the lawyer on their show. But the network isn’t embarrassed about that decision. They allowed Dershowitz to rail against his accuser. He told Pete Hegseth, “She would have been the key witness if she were credible, but the government simply didn’t believe her. So today was a good day for those people who were accused by her.”
