Grubs didn't link MG Sigler's quote, nice.

Here's the answer to Grubs' question:

"Apple is acknowledging it can't force its ad technology into the marketplace and it makes more sense to allow standard ad serving."

Normal people, not tech nerds, are used to junky ads and this probably won't deter them from using it. If Apple doesn't make a change, publishers will quit using News, which means no money for Apple. Pretty simple.

That's what ads are. If they didn't interrupt or delay the reading experience, no one would look at them so what would be the point for the advertiser

Why does it matter if the reading experience in ruined in something nobody reads?

It's a "tree falls in the forest" kind of problem.
