A leading ad exchange has blacklisted Breitbart News, which until recently was run by one of US President-elect Donald Trump's closest advisers.
AppNexus said it would no longer allow Breitbart to sell ad space via its platform, after determining that the site had broken its code on hate speech and incitement to violence.
Of course Breitbart argues that this is unfair and that they "condemn racism and bigotry in any form."
To which AppNexus replied:
But a spokesman said a "human audit" of Breitbart had flagged several articles that had caused it concern because of the language they had featured.
"We use a number of third-party standards to determine what is and isn't hate speech, and if we detect a pattern of speech that could incite violence or discrimination against a minority group, we determine that to be non-compliant and we simply won't serve ads against it," AppNexus's spokesman Joshua Zeitz told the BBC.
"I'm not going to put the examples out there because I'm not going to engage in a tit-for-tat on what is compliant."
If anybody needs examples of Beitbart "condemning racism and bigotry" there are plenty of example available besides the ones provided at the top by George Takei:
'The solution to online 'harassment' is simple: Women should log off'
'Bill Kristol: Republican spoiler, renegade Jew'
'Trannies whine about hilarious Bruce Jenner billboard'
'Suck it up buttercups: Dangerous Faggot Tour returns to colleges in September'
'Hoist it high and proud: The Confederate flag proclaims a glorious heritage'
'Gay rights have made us dumber, it's time to get back in the closet'
'Science proves it: Fat-shaming works'
"There's no hiring bias against women in tech, they just suck at interviews"
Boy their fight against racism and bigotry is just breathtaking don't you think?
