"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.

Today SethAndIra celebrate the primary victory of Jim DeMint, now the Republican nominee for the Senate in South Carolina. We have previously addressed the Sun’s DeMintia, but still wonder; how often did DeMinted break out the Israeli-flag lapel pin back home?

On the subject of worthless New York Sun electoral endorsements, I wonder how they will treat the Bush administration's appeasement of the Red Koreans...
U.S. negotiators presented the first detailed American proposal Wednesday on resolving the standoff with North Korea, offering the North energy aid and a security guarantee in exchange for dismantling its nuclear program.

The proposal is meant to break an impasse in talks that began their third round after earlier negotiations brought no progress on Washington's demand for the North to scrap its nuclear program.

Hmmph. The Sunnis run a half-page idiotorial comparing Reagan's dealings with Iran to Bush's dealings with Iran without mentioning:

(A) That little arms-for-hostages swap Reagan engineered;
(B) That little arms-for-military aid to Nicaragua scheme (what was that scandal called again?); or
(C) That their own little pet Iraqi criminal, Ahmad Chalabi, has bet his political future on Iran, and not the U.S., coming out on top in Iraq.

Given that Chalabi is a weasel, scumbag, thief, and political conman, this should come as no surprise, as the greatest beneficiary to our little adventure in Iraq has been its neighboring mullahs. Somehow I don't think such dim "men" as SethandIra will consider this fact when the Sun makes its useless endorsements in November 2004, assuming it is stil publishing at that time.

I like to check in on criminal enterprise Hollinger International from time to time. This report, from the Chicago Crain's, says that the Chicago Sun-Times -- a Hollinger publication that is actually mentionable, unlike its New York sister -- inflated circulation figures by setting up fake accounts and destroying the evidence.

Wonder if the Sun learned anything from their Chicago kin? If so, I wish they'd just destroy the whole damn print run.
