Washington Post adds ads to RSS feeds

Washington Post adds ads to RSS feeds: (From AdAge.com – reg.

Washingtonpost.com
yesterday quietly began integrating advertising into its RSS feeds, the
first major news site, it says, to offer such a service. The MSNBC TV
show The Situation with Tucker Carlson is the inaugural advertiser.

As I’ve said before, I believe anyone can exercise their
right to add ads to their RSS feeds and I can exercise my right to
remove them — if I don’t like how they do it — from the feeds to
which I subscribe. However, I think ads on RSS feeds miss the point. I
agree with Dave
Winer who says the feeds themselves are ads. In my opinion, this is
especially true about the feeds that merely provide a headline and summary message.
