News, but not as we know it...

The Observer Chronicle is a weird news site which appears to operate from New York. It seems to generate content by scraping real news sites, then changing some words via a synonym dictionary, presumably to avoid charges of copyright infringement.

It caught my eye through a story on Charter Renewal, which appears to be scraped from BBC News.
Lord Hall, on second reference, becomes Lord Corridor. Home Editor Mark Easton becomes Residence Editor. The Green Paper becomes an inexperienced paper.  Top Gear becomes Prime Equipment.
