I love how they posted the copied text at the end. I hate practices like this. It’s a restriction of sharing information just so they can try to get more ad dollars
That’s pretty annoying.
About a decade ago, I used to blog a lot. Every time I would copy-paste text from other blogs (quoting them), they’d inject gunk on to it. I always deleted that gunk and added attribution in a consistent way myself. Iirc, it was a pretty widespread fad (much like parallex effects with scroll jacking like 6 years ago).
Having said all that, I understand the need for news websites to do everything they can to earn revenue (even though this specific method am amongst other is counter-productive and just frustrates the audience).
