News sites publishing long articles on how surveillance is bad but pushing loads of trackers themselves on those exact same pages. Have you no shame?

@jwildeboer The person that wrote the article has very likely no connection to the news sites management team that is responsible for said trackers.

@ovidius Yes, I know that. But how does that make it acceptable?

@jwildeboer That is the thing with journalists they have to point out problems even when their employer or someone else is guilty of the same thing. Why should the company behind follow everythink an employee suggests? Is that a possible double standard? Yes, but that is inherent in for profit news. The alternative would be having no such pieces on there.
