...and hallucination is a perception which is false...


12.11.2008 Updated, 11:20 a.m. | Sorry, folks, the paper isn’t free.  
And the Iraq war isn’t over, at least not yet.
In an elaborate hoax, pranksters distributed thousands of free copies  
of a spoof edition of The New York Times on Wednesday morning at busy  
subway stations around the city, including Grand Central Terminal,  
Washington and Union Squares, the 14th and 23rd Street stations along  
Eighth Avenue, and Pacific Street in Brooklyn, among others.
The spurious 14-page papers — with a headline “IRAQ WAR ENDS”  
— surprised commuters, many of whom took the free copies thinking  
they were legitimate.
The paper is dated July 4, 2009, and imagines a liberal utopia of  
national health care, a rebuilt economy, progressive taxation, a  
national oil fund to study climate change, and other goals of  
progressive politics.
The hoax was accompanied by a Web site that mimics the look of The  
Times’s real Web site. A page of the spoof site contained links to  
dozens of progressive organizations, which were also listed in the  
print edition.
(A headline in the fake business section declares: “Public Relations  
Industry Forecasts a Series of Massive Layoffs.” Uh, sure.)
Gawker is reporting that the prank looks like the work of the liberal  
pranksters known as the Yes Men, who were the subject of a 2004  
documentary film.
Later on Wednesday morning, the Yes Men issued a statement claiming  
credit for the prank. The statement said, in part:
In an elaborate operation six months in the planning, 1.2 million  
papers were printed at six different presses and driven to  
prearranged pickup locations, where thousands of volunteers stood  
ready to pass them out on the street.
Catherine J. Mathis, a Times spokeswoman, said: “This is obviously a  
fake issue of The Times. We are in the process of finding out more  
about it.”
