Latest BBC rip-off scandal

Scandal of the day: Why and since when has the BBC carried advertising on its news website?
It’s scandalous enough that the corporation is destroying private sector regional news organisations by wasting hundreds of millions on its website.
It is even worse that the lumbering Leviathan is now creaming off advertising revenue to support its abominable nationwide poll tax of licence fee revenue.
I trust our politicians will address this question urgently.
In view of the comment below, please note: I did not view the website from abroad (unless you call Scotland "abroad"; I was in Edinburgh).

You only see the advertising if you are outside the UK. Enjoy your holiday.

Sounds similar to local authorities running consultancy arms and diverting work from small businesses...

O/T: thoroughly enjoyed The Smoking Gun. Check this out (Amazon review soon).
