Is This Anonymous Group Behind the New York Times WikiLeaks Hoax?

http://j.mp/PWZC09  (BetaBeat)

   "Early this morning, a pro-WikiLeaks op-ed purporting to be penned
    by former New York Times executive editor Bill Keller cropped up
    online.  It was a stunningly convincing piece of web fraud, its
    design practically identical to the New York Times's own homepage,
    with every link leading to an actual Times article or section. The
    only hint that it wasn't real was the URL: instead of showing as
    nytimes.com/pages/opinion, it read "opinion-nytimes.com." It's a
    tiny difference, but a monumentally important one."
