Ads support our TV programming, newspapers, mags, social media, and most every other "free service" offered to the public. I have no problem with it as long as they are not too intrusive. In few places do we have the option of turning some ads off such as the right hand column here.
Andy R. and staff are not doing this for their health or as a public service. They are paying good money for this service. If the ads are too intrusive (in anyone's opinion), we have the right to walk. It will be their judgement as to the right mix of ads and content. Their success will rise and fall on their decisions. I wish them success and profit from this endeavor.
