I'm sorry but by allowing Google to post "fake news" pro-Trump ads as well as simple tabloid scams on your site you are:
1. damaging your own credibility
2. spreading fake news
3. failing to take personal responsibility for your own actions by simply pretending that its Google's fault.

You are under no obligation to use google or any other fake-news clickbait site for advertisements. Man up, or put a warning note on your site just above the ads that say that Dailykos DOES NOT APPROVE OF THE ADS BELOW.

    IIRC, DK's ads come from aggregators. This gives them little control over what pops up, as the ads tend to be context sensitive.

    Two quick and easy fixes: Buy a subscription or use an ad blocker. Or both: belt and suspenders.
