Today’s News Tomorrow: New York Times Hoax

NYTimes spoof

New York Times readers got a jolt of “liberal utopia” yesterday as part of the latest hoax by The Yes Men, Improv Everywhere, & Co. Thousands of printed newspapers were distributed across the U.S. by volunteers, relaying mock headlines like “Iraq War Ends” and standard sections about the national news, classifieds, and even a recall story about gasoline-powered cars.

The paper was dated July 4, 2009, seven months after President Elect Barack Obama would take to office. The New York Times was not amused, but something tells me they were still flattered.

Nice one! d(^_^)b
