editorial vs the advert

as i try and get a grip on the google adwords program, i read one man’s fight with the google monolith as he appears to have triggered some sort of clickfraud detection filter on the google adsense program he’s running. that’s the story the times ran in its blog section.

funny then at the very bottom of the story you find a strident blue box listing a bunch of adsense links with the heading ‘ads by google’.

no comment from the people that published the story on how well the adsense program is working for them. would this not have made for a more complete ‘well-rounded’ story?

i hope the blogging revolution will help shake up some of the inherent contradictions in big media.
