New York Post editor Col Allan does not appreciate your skepticism, goddammit. Via his flack, Allan has issued a statement in response to all the crap he's been getting today for his Mary-Kate-As-Prime-Suspect cover.

"We confirmed this story last night with an impeccable source inside the NYPD and we stand by our reporting. Almost immediately after the tragic passing of Mr. Ledger, Ms. Olsen's attorneys began emailing us threatening letters. As has been well reported, there were a number of calls to Ms. Olsen from the masseuse before the NYPD arrived on the scene. We would find it strange if Ms. Olsen were not questioned at all. The New York Post will not be pressured and we find it odd that the chiefs at the NYPD appear to be terrified of 4-foot-11 inch, 90-pound Mary Kate Olsen."

Did the Post just out-and-out call the New York Police Department a bunch of pussies? Yeah, they totally did.
