100 Years of Journalistic … oh Never Mind

How depressing to discover that UPI – whose tagline is “100 Years of Journalistic Excellence” – is using those beyond-annoying in-text ads on its website. Seriously, ads for the Chevy Volt and Prudential InsuranceĀ embedded in a story about the Israeli-Hamas conflict? I weep for journalism. Again.

  1. The problem is the links have nothing to do with the main point of the story. For example, the word “Bank” is highlighted as part of “West Bank”. The link leads a bank ad. Huh? If the ads had something to do with the story (none come to mind) I might find it less repulsive.
