There’s no easy find for News Chicken. There’s no disclaimer or about or terms of service page on their site; the social media icons don’t link to anything but the dreaded /#/, which just reloads the current page you’re on; their Facebook page posts a combination of their own stories and (mostly) viral stories from other sources, incld. TMZ.
But there are clues to the site’s legitamacy once you look at some of their original — er, sorry, “original” — stories.
This sounds suspiciously like Now8News.com’s story about a woman was arrested at a Louisiana WalMart for masturbating in a restroom with a Jimmy Dean sausage — even at the sentence-level:
|Police are calling this the strangest crime of 2016.||Police are calling this a crime of the unthinkable [. . .].|
|Shoppers then seen her running into the women’s toilets where she stayed for at least 20 minutes.||CCTV footage then shows the woman walking to the bathroom, where she remained for at least 30 minutes.|
|When I asked her to stop what she was doing she just looked me straight in the eyes and continued to victimize the stolen sausages”||He said that when he entered “She didn’t even stop. She just stared at me and kept going.”|
|“Due to the fact she was a Big-Girl we decided it was best we ring the police to deal with this matter”.||Shocked, and also frightened for his safety due to the fact that Johnson is a “big girl,” the 140 pound security guard said he ran out until police arrived.|
|It took 4 Police officers around 35 minutes to restrain the woman [. . .]||All in all, it took 7 police officers to restrain Johnson and pry the victimized sausage out of the woman’s hands.|
Basically, this site appears to be a fake news site geared for the U.K.
But some of the more sensational and shocking news might have some truth to them, especially the ones with accompanying video.
