Yes-Men Are Being Sued by the US Chamber of Commerce

The Yes-Men, those anti-corporate activitists with a zany sense of humor, announced they’re being sued by the US Chamber of Commerce after their latest prank.

The Chamber, under fire for its stance on climate change and hemorrhaging high-profile members, was not pleased when Yes-Men posing as Chamber officials held a press conference to announce a reversal of that stance. A few minutes into the press conference, a real Chamber official burst in to denounce the press conference as fake (and totally ignored any questions on climate change.)

And here’s Mother Jones reporter Kate Sheppard on the Rachel Maddow show discussing the prank.
