From the link at Wikipedia:
|The Skibbereen Eagle, a newspaper founded in 1857, was famous for its international perspective by publishing an editorial that "told Lord Palmerston that it had “got its eye both upon him and on the Emperor of Russia."", and in August 1914 having a leading article that said “We give this solemn warning to Kaiser Wilhelm: The Skibbereen Eagle has its eye on you.”|
That's so precious! It reminds me of a UD bloviator challenging a famous scientist to a debate.
And then calling them a coward two days later when they don't respond.
