This is just a cut and paste job from wikipedia. The whole site is spam/stolen content, as far as I can tell.


Though there may be other things wrong with it, given Wikipedia's Creative Commons-Share Alike license, it's certainly not stolen content.

It certainly does make me think about alternative ways of presenting Wikipedia that are more interesting.

As there's no apparent attribution, the content is being used in violation of the Wikipedia license.

If I was going to buy some air time via Google TV to promote my Chicago news aggregator, this is what I'd do.

Although it's fake, the Wyoming incident is pretty interesting:

It's like an internet campfire ghost story about a hijacked broadcast.
