I don't know what this wget module is, but normal wget binary downloads
those json urls just fine for me...

As a workaround you may try to append "?as_text=1" at the end of the url,
this should change MIME type to a file, maybe your wget will handle that.

Or you may just try to use urllib.urlopen() function which is built in
standard Python library.
