As one of our readers accurately observed yesterday, CAAFlog’s readers seem to be smarter than your average bear. Perhaps you all can help educate this unfrozen caveman lawyer.
As I was reading WorldNetDaily’s latest update on the Lakin case this morning, here, I rolled my cursor over a hyperlink. I was surprised to see an ad for Samsung pop up. When I then roll over two others, Intel adds pop up. On a fourth, a Hewlett Packard ad popped up. On a sixth, a Verizon ad came up. A seventh brought up what appears to be a Microsoft ad.
It’s bad enough that apparently the U.S. Treasury is subsidizing the Lakin defense effort in the form of reduced tax receipts resulting from tax deductible contributions to LTC Lakin’s legal defense fund. But am I also subsidizing WorldNetDaily when I buy products or services from Samsung, Intel, Hewlett Packard, Verizon, and Microsoft (all of which I have)? Are these reputable companies directly entering into contracts with such a conspiracy-theory-peddling outfit as WorldNetDaily?
Could those of you who know more about how Internet advertising works than do I (which probably equates to roughly 100% of the non-guano-crazy CAAFlog readership — and perhaps a large chunk of the guano-crazy readership as well) enlighten me on that?
