Ad-Supported News


There’s a lot of news sites out there that are ad-supported; both long-standing publications with roots in the traditional black-and-white printed medium, and newer niche sites focusing on specific topics (such as online games, or tax laws). In fact, these days you’d be hard-pressed to find a free news site without a decent serving of adverts.

However, there is such a thing as going too far, as the image below shows. I’ve even taken the liberty of highlighting the real article text on the page. I’m sure you’ll agree that it’s both ludicrous and hilarious at the same time.

(You should probably click to see the full extent of the silliness, but the smaller image gives a pretty good idea nonetheless…)

Would be nice if they were ‘independent’ from all those sodding ads!
