Turmoil continued at the Forward newspaper this week as Jewish philanthropist and co-owner Michael Steinhardt decided to stop sinking his millions into the weekly. The news follows last week's resignation of Steinhardt's partner, editor Seth Lipsky, who 10 years after launching the English edition was reportedly forced out by the paper's liberal-minded Forward Association board because of his neo-conservative political views. Lipsky's resignation was announced by Harold Ostroff, chair of the board of directors of Forward Newspaper LLC.
