We all know Wikipedia rank no 1 for a lot of their pages, but now it seems that news results are the new number 4.

I've only observed this on regional Googles (.co.uk, .com.au) - it doesn't seem to affect google.com. It only seems to be present without country-specific filters.

Anyone else noticing this?

From the US, I cannot see this kind of SERP on either .co.uk or .com.au

It gets weirder for Google...

Result #3 is www.example.com

Result #4 is the usual lame, out dated news result.

Result #5 is and INDENTED result from the same domain as #3... but it is indented under the news result!
