ARI SHAPIRO, host:
Good morning, I'm Ari Shapiro. People who complain the news is too negative got a break yesterday. Volunteers across the country handed out copies of a paper that looked a lot like The New York Times. The front page proclaimed "Iraq War Ends!" Articles said global warming was fixed and public universities would be free. The people behind the stunt include three real Times staffers. They will remain anonymous so they don't get fired for spoofing the Gray Lady. It's Morning Edition.
