You may have heard about an internet hoax this week where somebody posed a GI Joe-type doll to look like a hostage. (Tom B. has nice coverage of the hoax as a media story here.) Our favorite two sentences from the AP story:
The U.S. military said no soldiers were missing.
But the figure appeared stiff and expressionless.
You may not know, however, about Glen Ridge internet hoax/parody artist known as Mike Z., whose work includes "Military Takeover of New York City," which you can see here. Mike Z. prefers to keep a low profile, but he will be featured, along with the GI Joe story, on an ABC "20/20" segment, "Caught on Tape," tomorrow night at 10 pm.
"Some people write letters to the editor," Mike explained, tossing off suggestions that he’s an underground folk hero. "I just express myself artistically."
