Google has revealed it is working on a policy change to its AdSense online advertising network that will prevent websites with misleading content from using it to earn money, while Facebook has said it is updating its advertising policy to restrict adverts appearing alongside 'misleading or deceptive' content.
The announcement comes following criticism of social media over the role it played in the US presidential election , and the alleged spread of false information that may have influenced some voters.

Say Goodbye to all right leaning sites and bite like ATS. That's the goal here. This so called crackdown of what they call fake news is a bigger story than Trump winning the election and no one is saying anything about it. The average person has no idea this is happening.

How long until ATS have to start trimming threads and posts because they will lose their ad revenue?
When the fakestream media started rabbiting on about fake news sites I immediately felt it was the beginning of an attack on the altmedia.

I foresee a time when sites such as ATS will be forced to become a members only/"Pay to keep it Free" type of site and become ad free to avoid content censorship from entities like AdSense etc.
I hope it never comes to this, but if tptb have their way I could see these things happening
