The Boston Globe, April 10, 2017 (PDF link). The Boston Globe has released a literal front-page editorial in the form of their own front page from one year in the future under President Trump. The stunt backs an anti-Trump editorial and the time-traveling edition is being distributed in today's Sunday edition. There is no evidence of any involvement by John Titor.

The Globe is not the first to use this as a marketing or editorial technique. Most recently, In October 2015, USA Today released a special "Back to the Future" front page. That same month, a Cleveland politician literally created a fake community newspaper as a campaign mailer and marketing tool. In February 2016, Jewish peace activists distributed a spoof edition of the New York Times.
