New Yuk Times: The Yes Men's Fake New York Times

Almost everybody knows the Onion, a satirical news website that features parodies of news. But the Yes Men have taken satirical news to a whole new level. In order to promote the ideals of liberal reform, they created a fictional version of the New York Times set on July 4th, 2009. Not only did they create an entire website that reads like a Democrat's fantasy utopia, but they also printed and distributed thousands of printed copies of the fictional Times. Very clever.

Speaking of spoofing the New Yuk Times, check out the New Yuk Times.

Funny intro at your profile. I like monkeys.

I have to admit that fake new York Times is pretty funny. "Maximum Wage Law Passes Congress", "Nationalized Oil To Fund Climate Change Efforts", "All Public Universities to be free". What's wrong with that? :)

I know, it's very clever. Would've been even better if they had stories to go with them. None of the links work! Lazy activists.
