"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.

An eagle-eyed reader sent us this article reporting (yes, Sunnis, when the New York Post says it, that actually does count as reporting, rather than what you do, which is "reporting") that Stuart Marques is out as the New York Sun's news editor. (Sorry, that should have been "news" "editor".) The always great Keith Kelly points out that "Sources say he clashed with Sun President and Editor Seth Lipsky over the hardline conservative political direction of the fledgling paper." Um, just noticed that, huh, Stu? Lardass baldy Seth is quoted, "We're going to move some of the editors around."

Sounds like a great idea. How about moving them here? According to your rag, things seem to be going swimmingly.
