THE YES MEN.
Bill Moyers gets in on the joke with two impersonators who use satire to
make serious points about media consolidation, journalism, business
ethics, and separating fact from fiction in a world of spin.
The Yes Men are Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno, two impersonators who
use satire to bring media attention to issues that otherwise might be
"We actually see this as a form of journalism. Or perhaps more
precisely, the form of collaboration of journalists," explains Bichlbaum
in his interview with Bill Moyers.
"A lot of the issues that we address journalists want to cover. But...in
many situations, editorial control won't let them unless there's a good
little hook behind it. And so, we've found a way to create funny
spectacles that give journalists the excuse to cover issues."
