Guests on the Menu today include TVNewser editor Kevin Allocca and FishbowlNY editor Amanda Ernst, who came on to discuss the layoff news coming out of the Times yesterday and a public relations fiasco caused by stunt-pulling activist group, The Yes Men.
News of the Yes Men’s stunt at the National Press Club yesterday was all about the hoax press event that took place. A press release stating that the US Chamber of Commerce had reversed its position regarding climate change, and subsequent press conference (with journalists present), were fake — perpetrated by the Yes Men, an organization that gets its various messages across through hoaxes like this one.
See a video of the hoax being interrupted by the US Chamber of Commerce communications director, here.
