The Fake New York Post: Get Yours Now

Last November, New Yorkers were greeted one morning with a Fake New York Times, produced by pinkos. Today the same people—The Yes Men—have dropped a Fake New York Post on the city. Let’s look, then!

Top stories:

  • “We’re Screwed!” By climate change.
  • “Pentagon top brass warn: Act now, or pay later with ‘lives’.” Global warming kills.
  • “Congress cops out on climate.” Greenhouse gas is dangerous.

So while the Fake NYT was about ending the Iraq War, the Fake NYP is all about global warming. It’s much too earnest to really capture the full comedic potential of the setup, but you have to at least admire the ambition.

Apparently, instead of flooding the East River with Survivaballs as we originally thought, this fake paper was The Yes Men’s big stunt. It’s keyed to promote The Age of Stupid, the soon-to-be-released environmental flick. Want to know where you can pick up your free copy of the Fake New York Post? The group sent out an email advisory last night to volunteers telling them to go to the following spots. You should still see liberals out there with the papers if you go now:

* UN Headquarters – 2nd Ave. and E. 41st Street, SE corner (subway: 4-5-6
