Ed Crooks FT Faked

The FT is the subject of the sincerest form of flattery today, in the shape of a 12-page spoof and accompanying website from environmental campaigners, linked to protests around the London G20 meeting next week.

It is a mix of jokes and arguments, of varying quality, but the production is superb. Thay have reproduced the look of the FT very impressively.

The best bit: the leader column, which writes

Frankly, the Financial Times is more honest than most, both about its bias and the state of the world. Investors tend to want their news less filtered, even if they still like it framed to serve their interests.

Perhaps we should use that in our advertising.
