"Special Edition" New York Post
A group called the Yes Men has created a false edition of the NY post with the headline “We’re Screwed”. Within the Faux edition are all kind of reports (they say are totally factual) about the dangers of climate change. Of course, the real New York Post has been pretty skeptical of climate change. The group has timed this parody and stunt to coincide with a UN meeting on climate issues; they claim to have distributed nearly a million copies.
