The BBC has been forced to apologise after falling for the latest stunt from by The Yes Men ( http://www.theyesmen.org/
) who impersonated a Dow Chemical spokesman and said the US company accepted responsibility for India's Bhopal disaster.
BBC World broadcast the comments twice by a man identified as Jude Finisterra, but later said it had been the victim of "an elaborate deception". http://www.alertnet.org/thenews/newsdesk/L03429388.htm
The Yes Men recently visited Sheffield and publicly endorsed the alt.doc.fest fringe documentary festival that was organised by Sheffield Indymedia: http://www.indymedia.org.uk/en/regions/sheffield/2004/10/300316.html
