Lead Stories is an innovative news website at the intersection of big data and journalism. Our editorial team uses the technology provided by Trendolizer (patent pending) to quickly find the most trending content on the internet. We specifically hunt for trending stories from known fake news, satire or prank websites most of the time but we will occasionally write about other things trending on the internet as well.

Lead Stories is mainly written by Maarten Schenk and Alan Duke.

Our slogan is: It is not because it's trending that it's true: sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't. Our goal is to tell you as quickly as possible.
