I ended up on a NewsMax website widget, clicked through to the stories and found out that it was for advertisement. I
t then tried to remote load some png image from a third-party site. What was worse: the video instant played, so then I tried to click on the category tags above, only to find that each & every external link was to the same URL, a product that I don’t want to buy. Even the main page on the main news site pulls this same stunt.
I’m filing a complaint with Google over these shady practices. Don’t know what’s going on!
