"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.

Another day, and the Sun's editorial page still refrains from commenting on their boy Chalabi's plight.

These must be dark days on Chambers Street.

The transformation of Ahmed the Pirate into Ahmed the Spy continues unabated. As the New York Times and others report that Chalabi told Iran that the US had broken Iran’s secret communications codes, what do the Sunnis have to say on the matter? Of course, they (much like the current MisAdministration) stick to their guns. Only yesterday, they defended (courtesy Romenesko) Judith Miller’s “reporting,” which of course was based on the misinformation provided her by Chalabi. And today? What of the Spy himself?

Oddly, the SpEditorial page doesn’t mention him.
