"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.

It's been a long time since we heard from LFLS gossip columnist Rachel P. Olivier, but here she is checking in with some of her patented blind items:

WHICH leggy hottie left her employer when it turned out a certain editor may have been interested in parsing more than just her copy? Word is, his wife was none too happy about hubby's interest, either!

WHICH journo decided she had had enough of working for a certain sub-par "newspaper" and bolted to join a certain orange-colored weekly? Word is, several of her former colleagues already did the same thing!

WHAT is the dark secret surrounding the marriage of a certain managing "editor" of a certain low-rent "shitrag"? Word is, the missus has all the answers!

TTFN! Love and kisses, Rachel!
 
So in addition to banking fraud in Jordan, being paid for shit intelligence to America, and engaging in rather overt gross corruption in Iraq, Chalabi was bilking the American taxpayer as well:
An Iraqi exile group may have violated restrictions against using taxpayer funds to lobby when it campaigned for U.S. action to oust Saddam Hussein, according to documents and U.S. officials with direct knowledge of the matter.

If the charge - which is the subject of an upcoming probe by Congress' General Accounting Office - is borne out, it means that U.S. taxpayers paid to have themselves persuaded that it was necessary to invade Iraq.

Again, it bears pointing out -- SethAndIra have consistently taken the side of this overstuffed swindler against the American people. But the American taxpayer! Where do the SethAndIranian loyalties lie?

An excellent demolition of Richard Perle, the overstuffed and not overly intelligent godfather of the dogma animating SethAndIra's "penny for your thoughts" fraudsheet. Dr. al-Harami also comes in for a drubbing.
 
Of course Stoolie and his overweight enabler are making much hay over the Oil-for-Food scandal. Generalizing from their stance here, we expect the Berkshire Bigots to decline Michael Swinelard's capital contribution to their propaganda effort with an emphatic "non merci." Steinhardt, the father of newest Sun columnist, is notorious for helping orchestrate a pardon for billionaire tax dodger, fugitive, and felon Marc Rich. Rich, to refresh, traded Iranian oil in violation of a US embargo at a time when Iran was holding Americans hostage. The proceeds, no doubt, were used by the Iranians to bankroll their global program of Islamofascistterroristeeeeeeevil, as decried by Michael Ledeen and other in-house Sunnis.

But SethAndIra will not reject the new Steinhardt funding. No money is too good for them, even if its source is a champion of arming a constituent nation of the Axis of Evil in blatant and sickening contravention of American law.

Day Two of the Sun's curious idiotorial silence on the recent bombshells relating to the Saudi regime's unprecedented access to American national security information and their willingness to manipulate oil prices to influence U.S. elections.

The Sun does run a MEMRI report today with the shocking news that Saudis don't like Jews.

I'd hate to think such bastards are conspiring to shape our upcoming election. So, you might imagine, do SethAndIra.

Ah, but no. They operate under the age-old principle that it's okay to do damn near anything, as long as you're a Republican.

Aaaaaay, it's the return of Stoolie! Today our friend the neocon fuckwit is "reporting" that the FBI field office in Philly is giving a community service award to a guy who called Ashcroft a "lunatic."

I didn't know that was a matter of opinion.

But striking secret deals with the Saudis? To manipulate oil prices to influence the presidential election? Not a mention from the Sunnis. New evidence of a softer line on the House of Saud?

Pish-posh. It's not like the president is someone important, like some adjunct professor at Columbia, or an Arab-American activist at Philadelphia.

Today "Sara Berman's Column On Parenting Debuts." At page one, no less.

All hail that touchstone of conservatoid faith: meritocracy.

I wonder if SethAndIra plan to supplement her first check with a complimentary microwave or Cadi-ma-lac.

Nepotism for the Sunnis and their progeny (who better to discourse on the mysteries and wonders of parenting than someone of a full 28 years?), barbarism for the poor/despised/Muslim.

Pathetic.
