NY Post: Today more phony than normal

fakepost

As I walked south on Sixth Avenue this morning, like any thinking person, I declined two different people’s attempts to give me a free copy of the New York Post. Not really my kind of paper.

It wasn’t until I got comfortable at my desk and read the day’s news, online natch, that I realized that wasn’t really the Post they were giving out. I should have known by the hippie clothes of the paper holders. Methinks Posts workers wouldn’t wear vintage plaid bell bottoms.

The Yes Men, the collective that produced the paper, have done this before. Last November they printed and distributed a fake New York Times. While the fake Times was about Iraq, this fake Post is all about the environment.  You can check it out online here.
