Fake New York Post Hits the Streets

fake_new_york_post After successfully punking the New York Times last year, the Yes Men are at it again. This morning, the activist group distributed 1 million fake copies of the New York Post around the city. Coinciding with the first day of the U.N. summit on climate change, the 32-page paper highlights the potentially disastrous effects of global warming, and in true tabloid fashion, chose the appropriate headline: “WE’RE SCREWED.” In addition to the print version, the group launched a website mimicking the Post’s, complete with the horrid new redesign. They also produced an entertaining video detailing the whole fake news-making operation, see it after the jump.
