@guarddogclaudia was rewatching s1 of the anime when she noticed this newspaper during the Jack the Ripper case, and she asked around to see if this was “something”. Damn right, it is! Good catch!
Nevermind the headline; we know who Jack the Ripper was.
Look at the newspaper itself. “The Stars”. It shows two stars, both are eight-pointed, they are overlapped, and one is much bigger than the other….
Good grief, it’s the binary star system of Sirius. Sirius A is a huge, blue, main sequence star. Sirius B used to also be blue… and even bigger… until it collapsed into a white dwarf. The two stars tug at each other, getting ever closer, until (it’s expected) they collide. This overlapping of the stars in the newspaper logo shows that these aren’t just any two stars; they are intrinsically connected.
I dragged out my DVDs to figure out which episode – episode 3. So, even as far back as episode 3 of s1, we were given little clues about Lord Sirius and the Blue Sect…. Sure, s1 and s2 are AU spoilers, at best, but “Everything is for the Blue Star,” as Blavat says.
Now this makes me wonder. I’ve already supposed that Blue Star Line is owned by or under the control of real Ciel/Lord Sirius. Has he also been controlling the media, or at least some aspect of it? Is it being controlled by someone else (like the queen)?
Does this tie in with why Sebastian uses a freelance reporter to expose Sphere Music Hall? Would a larger newspaper have refused the scoop?
