Parody The New York Times acts like a booster rocket and should quickly disappear, leaving room for final The Final Edition, "said Tony Hendra. The satirist is not his first attempt. "To his credit, many parodies as Not the New York Times and Off the Wall Street Journal, or a fake documentary about a heavy metal band, This is Spinal Tap," recalls Politico.
