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."
