This is a news site that intersperses healthy educational boring news stories with total crap stories about individual instances of of racially motivated violence and the like, and then puts so many ads on the crap story pages that the click through becomes one long infinite waiting game in which you do not receive any information and have time to think about how you should have clicked on one of the healthy boring stories, and keeps the healthy boring story pages ad- free so that they are responsive and interactive and intermittently display free ad-free pornography.

This would entail a software component that may have been invented here before, one that learns your pornography preferences and then uses them selectively to encourage you to make healthier choices online. Advertising is always used as punishment, it should be used as a reward.

       I think the mainstream media does this already. Only they keep telling boring stories while airing even more pointless commercials to make money.
