Media Fakes From Last Week:

The Iraq War Ends and the Harding Institute for Freedom and Democracy

On Wednesday, the Yes Men distributed a fake issue of the New Times with a headline that announced the Iraq War was over. A pdf can be found at

On Monday, it became known that a "senior fellow at the Harding Institute for Freedom and Democracy" had been "leaking" made up information about Sarah Palin and the McCain/Palin campaign to the media. This fake McCain advisor and policy institute is actually two filmmakers working on a tv pilot. The article can be found in the television section of the NYTs at
They have relied on blogging and you tube videos as sources for their hoaxes.
