Video: How the Yes Men pulled off the fake New York Times stunt

CNN interviews The Yes Men's Andy Bichlbaum and Eyebeam/Anti-Advertising Agency's Steve Lambert on how they created the spoof New York Times Special Edition, a speculative edition of the paper that includes what Paddy Johnson calls "Liberal America’s wish list": an end to war, the PATRIOT Act repealed, free universities, the works. A million copies of the paper were dropped in New York on Nov. 12, and as the duo tells CNN, it was a collaborative effort of dozens of writers and hundreds of others.
