Oh no, man! According to witnesses, this morning the NYPD detained several volunteers working with the Yes Men to distribute the hoax edition of the New York Post. Photographer Jason Nicholas was at the scene outside News Corp., the Post headquarters, when he observed cops detaining three volunteers who had been handing out copies.
He tells Daily Finance, "They seized the papers that those guys were distributing and took them inside the building. It seemed they were acting in concert with building security because I noticed them talking before and after." Neither the Post nor the NYPD have commented yet on what grounds the papers were seized, but we look forward to some fact-laden, objective reporting about it in tomorrow's Post.
