"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.

In one of their greatest GOPinion pieces in its sorry history, The New York Sun today came out in favor of a terrorist attack on America. The America-Lasters celebrate the results of the Sun’s first-ever poll, “in which 1,000 likely voters nationwide were asked, ‘Would a terrorist attack on America between now and election day make you more likely to vote for George W. Bush or John Kerry?’ The results were heartening to those of us who believe that Mr. Bush is the one with a better plan for victory in the war on terror.” According to the Sun, 38.9% of respondents said they would be more likely to vote for Bush, who presumably would be the one responsible for not preventing the attack, opposed to 30.3% who would be more likely to support John Kerry. “Americans,” the idiots type, “thank goodness, are made of sterner stuff” than those lousy cowardly Spic scaredycats who exercised their constitutional right to eject the party which lied to them about who was responsible for the Madrid attacks.

The Sun notes, “No Bush supporter is hoping for a terror attack in order to boost the president's chances for re-election. Still, the results should give pause to any terrorists hoping that a deadly attack on America would lead to the election of a president, Senator Kerry, who would be unlikely to pursue the war on terror as actively as Mr. Bush has.” Sorry, assholes, it sounds to me as if there in fact ARE Bush supporters who are hoping for such an attack, and they currently operate “at” Chambers Street.

But of course, these results should also “give pause to any Democrats who would hope to capitalize [remember: criticism is anti-American, no matter how many dead] on such an attack. We don't doubt that any attacks would be followed by such an effort, aimed at claiming, for instance, that Mr. Bush has left us vulnerable by not spending enough on homeland security, by failing to exert enough pressure on Prime Minister Sharon [wha?], and by attacking Iraq.” Why, the Sun points out, there hasn’t even been the hoped for attack yet, and already the Democrats are complaining! “Senator Clinton complained in a speech last month. ‘We still have not done enough on our port security; our border security; our infrastructure security,’ she complained.” Wait--are you guys saying she complained?? Please note that, aside from complaining that Sen. Clinton complained, the Sun does not address her complaining complaints.

But that don’t matter, because the results of the poll [taken by Fabrizio, McLaughlin; clients include “Over 10 Republican Senators. . . Over 30 Republican Congressmen. . . Numerous Republican Governors and other officials”] “suggest that such arguments won't get much traction with the majority of the American people, who understand that President Bush has been leading the war on terror about as vigorously as can be expected.” And if, in November, the majority of the American people end up deciding that The Unelected One HASN’T been leading the war on terror about as vigorously as can be expected, well, then, they are fools and appeasers.

And then these scumbags, these pathetic, mewling, fucks, reiterate their desire for a terrorist attack, anything to help their beloved Resident back into office for four more years:

“If anything - and here we speculate beyond the results of the poll – an attack on America would only strengthen American patriotism and determination to achieve victory in the war against the Islamic terrorist enemy. Which is why we're proud to be Americans rather than Europeans.”

Practically salivating at the thought of another terrorist attack on America, it’s your New York Sun.

Man, we're digging Knight Ridder these days. Here is a list of 108 articles based on exaggerated and fabricated intelligence supplied by Pirate Chalabi. Countless others can be found here.
So the Russians respond to an attack by bandits, slavers, and foreign jihadists based in Chechnya. Per SethAndIra, they are beyond evil for doing so.

The new pro-censorship leader of Georgia brings the region to the brink of yet another outbreak of brutality whilst employing rhetoric similar to that of the Russians - despite the fact that "his" country was not attacked. Per SethAndIra, this makes him good.

Additionally, Benny Avni tells us that the majority of Iraqis on the Governing Council do not want the UN to return to Iraq. Click here for near real time refutation of Avni's "news" piece [scroll down past the report of the latest instance of Iraqis welcoming the new age of freedom with flowers and praise for their US liberators]. You'd have thought the Sunnis' enthusiasm for mono-sourced reporting would have lessened by now.

To SethAndIra's credit, they again marshal besotted scribe Will Leitch into service. To their demerit, they print Leitch's work at page 20, hidden behind 19 pages of unreadable crap. Still, it remains the best thing to run in the fraudsheet (thanks, Q) since Errol Louis' outstanding "The Age of Hollow Patriotism," the lessons of which go unheeded by the Berkshire Bigots.

The Sunnis must be going apeshit that one of their (non) news stories was picked up on Drudge, bastion of all that is Truthful and Pure (better than the occasional Newsmax hit the Sun is usually limited to).

Funny how their news stories always become free when someone might want to actually read them.

Anyway, Michael Manville's dispatch from France is the same poorly-edited crap we are all used to. A sample:

"In fact, some here are looking to downplay his European connections, fearful that they may harm him in the campaign and give ammunition to the Republicans. One Bush administration official has commented that Mr. Kerry 'looks French.'"

I can't imagine the Republicans stooping to that level. This must have really set off James Taranto, author of the Best [sic] of the Web column that the Sun reprints every morning, who has been tirelessly using the "looks French" line in the hopes that one day it will be funny.
A reporter gone for the Daily News. Business editor leaving. Resumes being updated and sent out every day. But the Sun keeps on, desperately trying to stave off the inevitable.

Sun writers looking for future employment, you may want to look here for an exciting opportunity, which could lead to bigger things. . .

Being swept up in their typical idiotic bravado on Friday -- you know how SethAndIra love mass killing; what a thrilling time to be alive! -- the Chambers Street Chamberpots declared, "We Are All Spaniards Now" (in an idiotorial that, as you may have expected, blamed the bombings on the American Left).

How embarrassing that their newfound countrymen went out and elected a bunch of socialists!

The idiotarians try to cover for themselves today, marshalling up some mush about the Courage of Anzar and how Spain's voters somehow did the bidding of Al Qaeda. (Here's an idea: Perhaps the people of Spain "comprehended" 9/11 better than their former prime minister -- how it was a fight against actual terrorists as opposed to a single non-terrorist, non-WMD bearing tinpot dictator *at* Baghdad.)

This is a preview of what is to come. These traitorous fuckwits at the Sun have flirted with the "a vote for John Kerry is a vote for Al Qaeda" meme before. Expect more to come, as they demonstrate their complete lack of decency, credibility, ethics, "responsibility," etc.
