Gawker.com is reporting that the New York Sun is on its deathbed.
Gawker says sources have told it that the right-wing, pro-Israel newspaper will fold on Monday. The Sun's editor and spokesman would only say "no comment" on the report.
"I don't want to comment on that," said Sun editor Seth Lipsky, when reached by phone by The New York Observer, and asked about the Gawker item. When asked again if the paper's closure is imminent he said, "No comment." The Sun's spokesman, Michael Moi, said that there is no staff meeting scheduled today to discuss the paper's future.
