"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.

Love the war; hate the warrior.

The Sun goes big today with the (factually challenged) allegations being made -- and retracted -- by a bunch of Freeper hacks against Senator John Kerry. Rather than stand behind someone who fought in Seth's Favorite War, the Sunnis prefer to cudgel John Kerry for not liking it.

What better statement of the total bankruptcy of their almost-daily fraudsheet than their cognitive dissonance over Vietnam. What a glorious police action that was, except for those who fought in it, who should speak up when they have bad things to say about Democrats, but otherwise shut up.

Bush will endorse this sludge up until the point it begins to bite him back, at which point he will be finished. Three more months... can it come soon enough? ...

On another note, the Sun has, of course, been giving as much notice to the fact that Senator Richard Shelby, a Republican of Alabama, has been caught leaking classified material to the press as they did to the paper-shuffling of Sandy Berger. Naturally, they have pursued this story with the same vigor as the rest of that so-called liberal media, whose rampant left-wingery makes necessary this almost-daily desecration of Charles Dana.
 
Only time for some brief Sun-spotting today, friends. The Berkshits write:

Many of the antiwar protesters saw themselves, and were seen by others, as acting from a patriotic impulse. We would never suggest that they be blocked from airing their views in advertisements on television or newspapers or anywhere else.
Certainly not, except when ranting for treason prosecutions against peace protestors.

Assholes.

SethAndIra today decry an "unelected president." No, not the syllable- and pretzel-choking a-hole currently squatting at 1600 Pennsylvania, but some Arab fellow. Naturally.

At issue is a chunk of university endowment money from a Sheik who "never disassociated himself from other instances of rank anti-Semitism emanating from his country." Accountability is of course a good thing, so let us note that not once in its shameful history has the Sun breached the subject of Palestinian civilians killed by occupation forces except to suggest that occupation forces and their affinitives were felling Palestinians and other Arabs at a too-slow rate.

And while we're at it, what of the moneyed slobs backing Der Sturmer Mark II? Balding fatass Roger Hertog's Alliance Capital runs money for several pensions and institutional investors. Do those paying into Alliance-stewarded pensions know that their money is helping fund SethAndIra's appalling hate speech? A divesture is surely in order here, no?
