"I don't believe in journalists having 'responsibility.'"
-Seth Lipsky, October 16, 2003

Seth Lipsky and Ira Stoll demanded on August 20, 2003, that Washington "finish the war" against "the Arabs."

Seth Lipsky and Ira Stoll assembled their staff for a Champagne toast to mass death on the commencement of hostilities against Iraq. Stoll called it "my war." CNN maintains a running update here of Americans killed in Ira's war.

On February 6, 2003, Seth Lipsky and Ira Stoll wrote, in all seriousness, of a pending anti-war demonstration that the "the New York City police could do worse, in the end, than to allow the protest and send two witnesses along for each participant, with an eye toward preserving at least the possibility of an eventual treason prosecution."

The June 9, 1995 Wall Street Journal quoted an SEC complaint against New York Sun backer Bruce Kovner as saying Kovner had "altered and destroyed" subpoenaed evidence. We wish you'd do the same to the daily print run of your God-awful newspaper, Bruce.

Also, Professor G. Harlan Reynolds alleged on August 27, 2002 - when the Sun was several months in publication - that Seth Lipsky and Ira Stoll had not yet paid him for a piece authored for their inaugural issue.

Been a while since I looked in on the Sun.... Ya know, we used to be pretty hard on those guys, but I have a feeling that, since last we checked, they've really gotten their act together.

Let's check out an editorial (notice how I didn't say idiotorial? I have a sunny -- or should I say Sun-ny? -- new attitude!) from today's edition, on a new UK report on global warming :

"Given Britons's clime it's easy to see why they would take a dour view of the weather..."

Britons's? BRITONS'S?

I take it all back.

More news on old Backdoor Blackie:

The obstruction count alleges that he illegally removed more than a dozen boxes of documents from his company's offices in Toronto last spring, despite a December 2004 ruling by a Canadian court that said no documents could be removed without permission.

According to the U.S. attorney's office, Black first tried to take out the papers from the offices of parent Hollinger Inc. and Ravelston on May 20, a day after being warned by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that it was about to formally request documents as part of its investigation into the case. But the effort was thwarted when a company official told a court-appointed inspector, who notified building security.

Three hours later, just after 5 p.m., Black returned to the building and together with his chauffeur and an assistant removed 13 boxes of documents through a rear entrance, the statement by prosecutors said.

Ah, Connie, sneaking out the rear entry in the same manner you've been sticking it up the shareholders' rear entry, you old devil.

It seems like this is the time to make a reference to killing the Messenger, doesn't it? Specifically, "SethAndIra will soon be...."

The end is near?

Long time, no post.

Not that anything's changed in our absence.

The Sunnis are still hounding the UN and now Samir Vincent.

There's still an embargo on the mention of Swinelard's buddy Marc Rich.

..etc..ad infin.

An eagle-eyed reader sent us this article reporting (yes, Sunnis, when the New York Post says it, that actually does count as reporting, rather than what you do, which is "reporting") that Stuart Marques is out as the New York Sun's news editor. (Sorry, that should have been "news" "editor".) The always great Keith Kelly points out that "Sources say he clashed with Sun President and Editor Seth Lipsky over the hardline conservative political direction of the fledgling paper." Um, just noticed that, huh, Stu? Lardass baldy Seth is quoted, "We're going to move some of the editors around."

Sounds like a great idea. How about moving them here? According to your rag, things seem to be going swimmingly.
