Internet news sites are staffed with people in their mid-twenties writing clickbait and native ads and making slave wages so that the site makes enough money to support the few high paid editorial writers. Wading through shit to find a diamond is not even worth it a lot of the time.

Also, if you want to read without ads use feedly or greader.

almost all of the best news sites and print sources today are owned by private wealth or are maintained by funds, anyway. we're almost back to an old-school patronage system for 'noble' endeavours. even the guardian is in loads of debt. the london review of books – arguably the finest source in the world for essay-length comment and criticism from leading academics and public intellectuals – is maintained by the editors' family fortune in the fur trade, ffs.

the whole adblock/web ads thing is a silly canard. if you want good writing to continue, you're going to have to pay for it at some point.
