Fake Washington Post Newspapers Distributed in D.C.


The lead front page story of the fake paper read: "Unpresidented. Trump hastily departs White House, ending crisis."

Fake print copies of The Washington Post were floating around the nation's capital Wednesday.

The newspaper said it was aware someone had produced forged newspapers with fake headlines and stories inside. A fake website was also created. Organizer L.A. Kauffman claimed credit for making the paper, telling NPR that she worked with author Onnesha Roychoudhuri and activists Yes Men. The website mimicked the paper and also changed the Post's motto from "Democracy Dies in Darkness" to "Democracy Awakens in Action."
