Prank: 'All the news we hope to print'

NEW YORK

Global warming, health care spending and the economy's problem were on their way to solutions too.

Some 1.2 million copies of a spoof of The New York Times, dated July 4, 2009, were handed out by the liberal pranksters the "Yes Men."

The 14-page parody announces the abolition of corporate lobbying, a maximum wage for CEOs and a recall notice for all cars that run on gasoline.

A call and e-mail to The New York Times weren't immediately returned.
