Understandable: it is after all the MSNBC News NEWSBOT (beta).
The notice is quite up front:
|Dear Reader: |
Our newsbot is an automated test scan of the Net's most current headlines and is designed to enhance the breadth of MSNBC.com. Your feedback is welcome.
They are marketing their own flavour all wrapped up with an appearance of inclusion. Business as usual.
Note: Unable to read story: registration requires too much personal information and a Privacy/User Agreement I find totally unacceptable.
