ClickLancashire


It's titled: "66 percent of Americans under 30 disapprove of President Trump, poll finds."

And the first three paragraphs read:
There's an unconventional new president in the White House, but Washington is still up to its old tricks, engaged in familiar brinkmanship just days from a potential government shutdown. 
The latest University of Virginia Center of Politics survey found that 93% of Trump voters said they approved of the President's job performance. 
He also cited the 30 executive actions, many rolling back Obama-era orders, and one calling for the elimination of two regulations for every one added.
The title of the article is from an ABC News article.  The text of the first paragraph is from an AP bulletin.  The text of the second paragraph is from New York Daily News.  The text of the third paragraph is from BroadcastingCable.com.

When I checked the site, it had several AdChoices boxes, along with some content.ad boxes.  But it seems like the entire article was scraped together by some bot program.

ClickLancashire.com looked a lot different back in 2013.  Here's an archive from June, 2013, so you can see yourself: https://web.archive.org/web/20130621072431/www.clicklancashire.com.  It actually focused on news in Lancashire.  Now the header logo says "Click Lancashire--Independent News."

I wonder what happened?
