Google AdSense alert: Are you hosting Yes on Prop 8 ads? - the funcrunch files
Nov. 3rd, 2008 11:00 pm Google AdSense alert: Are you hosting Yes on Prop 8 ads?
I was alerted via Humuhumu on Twitter that people using Google AdSense discovered "Yes on Prop 8" ads appearing on their sites. Google posted a blog entry about this here, explaining how to block partisan ads. Note that the ads also may appear on Google's Blogger sites, and it's not clear if they could be filtered out there. The whole thing smells fishy to me, especially on the eve of the election...
Update: Some additional insight from TechCrunch and Gary Barnes on how and why these ads began appearing en-masse.
