The night Chris Stevens was murdered in Libya he yawned and went back to bed. Now some clown from the far left New York Times dies and he issues a statement of sadness.

President Obama on Saturday praised Arthur Ochs Sulzberger as a fearless truth-seeker and First Amendment champion, saying he and the first lady are “saddened” by the death of the long-time New York Times publisher earlier in the day.

“Over the course of more than 30 years, Arthur helped transform The New York Times and secure its status as one of the most successful and respected newspapers in the world,” Obama said in a statement.

“He was a firm believer in the importance of a free and independent press – one that isn’t afraid to seek the truth, hold those in power accountable, and tell the stories that need to be told.”

Independent press? Really? If only they were willing to seek the truth about what happened in Libya, told the story that needed to be told and held Obama accountable.

    It was right for Obama to honor Punch Sulzberger. He was truly a giant in the publishing industry at the height of the Times’ power and influence. His son Pinch is a much different character.
