This week’s homonym-impaired media outlet: Crain’s New York Business, which reported on the release of a fake edition of the New York Times thusly:
Five years and hundreds of billions of dollars later, the war in Iraq is over. At least that’s what some readers read Wednesday when they picked up a faux version of The New York Times.
Early Wednesday, a hoard of volunteers distributed free copies of a fake NYT, rife with headlines like “Iraq War Ends” and “Universities to Be Free” printed under the modified mantra “All The News We Hope to Print.”
Maybe that’s the problem: The fake Times publishers have been hoarding all the copy editors.
