Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Innovation UPDATE: Mint Press News implemented commercial advertising a/o today. User control of the spot playback is "hidden" in the HTML "header". Playback cannot be controlled unless the user utilizes browser "developer tools." :15 sec spots automatically launch on entry to the site and roll through advertisers' media slots (A/V and V only) as the user scrolls the "front page."

This user has noted in a trend in aggressive push placement tech at a variety of MSM anglophone websites beginning 1Q2018. This particular script is a desperate, indeed disingenuous, tactic to generate income and marketing data absent genuine solicitation of readers for subscription fee or "donations" much less grants from institutional funders.

Cue "late stage capitalism" quips as is the custom rather than say, the market of activist/journalist/columnist/photographer/writer/vlogger//economists is saturated.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
