Fake New York Times announces "Iraq War ends"

Fake's NYT homepage:


NEW Yorkers were left a little confused overnight as more than a million copies of a fake newspaper were handed out by a team of pranksters rallied through the web.

"Iraq War Ends" read the headline of a fake "special edition" of The New York Times, dated July 4, 2009, which was handed out to commuters as they rushed for work.

"Court Indicts Bush On High Treason Charge" and "Public Universities To Be Free" read some of the other spoof headlines, next to an admission by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice that the US Government had known Iraq did not have access to weapons of mass destruction.

As many as 1.2 million copies of the 14-page newspaper were handed out, along with an online spoof of the Times' website at www.nytimes-se.com.

@Merry Andrew,
it's funny... but it's also a lawsuit waiting to happen, right?

Isn't that fraud?

Liberals will sink to ANY low level to spread their appeasement for terror coupled with their hatred for this country.

Stealing votes, lobbying banks to give bad loans, paying news papers to print lies… and the list goes on.

@Merry Andrew,
The piece is satire. It's protected.

Anyone that looks closely will see the date on it is July4, 2009.
