The group Yes Men performed one of the best actions and media hits I have ever seen.  They held a fake press conference over a fake press release about the embattled climate denying US Chamber of Commerce doing a 180 reversal on it’s opposition to climate legislation by throwing its weight in full support.

Reporter Kate Sheppard has all parts of the story at Mother Jones, and was featured on the Rachel Maddow show Monday night giving insight into the entire prank pulled by Yes Men.  Below are three great videos, one is the fake press conference which got interrupted by the actual(and angry) US Chamber of Commerce.  The other two are Fox News and CNBC reporting it on their news channels.
