The Internet is plagued by advertisements.
Ads are bad enough on their own, but the way ads are spread on the Internet makes it quite possible that the ad-networks that spread them can send you dangerous malware.
Site owners do not control what ads are displayed on their sites.
They provide spade for an ad-network to show ads that have won an auction or otherwise matches criteria the ad-network has decided.
In this way great sites can end up infecting the computers of its readers.
I do urge everyone to actually pay for content though.
Journalism is a necessity to protect a democracy and journalists deserve to get paid.
I prefer to subscription model to the ad model.
