Dear Faithful Readers,

Breaking  news is hard business.

Harder still if you’re unpaid & unprofessional.

We’ve often been asked: “How do you do it?”

Simple: we have thousands of unpaid interns scattered across the globe, surfing the internet for the most interesting and important stories.

Then, for your viewing pleasure, we categorize stories into the following topics:

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, our President tells us we’re getting Fake News.

Is this a surprise? Television stations, radio stations, newspapers, publicists, lobbyists, and reporters are all, somehow, someway, in bed with their corporate sponsors, intelligence agencies, sports teams, celebrities, or the pharmaceutical companies they cover.

That’s why, now — maybe more than ever — it is up to the TheChickenhawk to uncover breaking news and dirty secrets.

We won’t rest until the rest rest.

Until our next breaking news story: remember to breathe!

Jimmy Walker

SPRINGFIELD, N.J. —  Sitcom legend, Jimmie “JJ” Walker, shocked the golfing world, to win his first major championship and, maybe his first golf tournament.

Unbeknownst to many, including this roving reporter, that Walker even plays golf, Jimmie is the first wire-to-wire winner of the PGA since Phil Mickelson in 2005.

Although not at Baltusrol, and unable to watch the television broadcast, the chaotic week full of storms, delays, and binge drinking, we have confirmed Walker shot 65-66-68-67 and is the fifth consecutive first-time winner in a major.

Walker,  who like many of us, has battled personal demons, said: “Sometimes things just don’t come easy …  There’s a lot of emotion going on out there, I’m not going to lie to you.”

A while ago, regarding Bill Cosby, TMZ reported Walker claims he witnessed Cosby hooking up all the time.

Walker, who worked with Cosby on a movie and on the comedy circuit said: “I actually thought everybody KNEW about all these women.”

Factoid Dept: Good Times was a spin-off of Maude which was itself a spin-off of All in the Family!

The Wink

The Wink

Cecil Stoughton liked President Kennedy, although they were not “friends.” As the first official White House photographer, there was no question who the boss was.

On November 22, 1963, Stoughton was in Dallas and took many famed images, the most popular among conspiracy believers is known as ”The Wink.”

Stoughton privately felt there was something wrong with Congressman Albert Thomas’ facial gesture and interaction with the newly sworn-in President.

Eighteen months after the assassination, The Kennedy Family requested Stoughton’s presence in England for the dedication of JFK’s Runnymede monument.

Lyndon Johnson, did not think highly of Stoughton’s absence from the White House. A week after he returned, Stoughton was released from White House duties. LBJ would not tolerate dissenting loyalties in the ranks.
