Advertising on news sites is getting ridiculous. This morning there was a video floating around the web about N.Korea's nuclear ambitions (example: http://www.smh.com.au/world/north-korea-to-restart-nuclear-reactor-20130403-2h5nb.html)
The same DPA/AFP syndicated video and article turned up on 4 other Murdoch media websites containing a 1:30 snippet of newscast from some american news reporter. The advertisement? 30 seconds - a frivolous waste of time.
