I have pulled negative pages from my site.

I am embarrassed.

I have railed against the media and their biases for a long time. Today I am part of the problem.

Today I pulled the few negative pages I had on one of my sites regarding a product, because other pages I have on this site earn decent money from that product through AdSense. I am concerned that the Negative Campaign Filter may be applied to that whole site due to the sparse negative material.

AdSense keeps the lights on this site which provides a wide range of information in a niche market. But what good is this site if it isn't providing the WHOLE story? But what good would the site do if I have to shut it down due to lack of revenue? I am so conflicted.

At first blush I thought that the filter made sense, but now I'm not so sure that it won't have a chilling effect on the truth. I'm proof, I guess. I hope I'm the exception rather than the rule, but I doubt it.

...I guess some on the left were right all along; without even applying the pressure themselves, advertisers do exert tremendous control over the content of the world.

I'm so ashamed of myself.

That seems to be the case, through an increase in eCPM rather than CTR.
