Quick News Links: Singaporean Blogger Suspended & Click Fraud Study
July 7, 2006 by Gaman
A Singaporean newspaper has suspended an Internet blogger’s column after the government criticised his latest satirical piece about high living costs. “The editors of Today have suspended the Mr Brown column with effect from Friday, 7th July, 2006,” said a statement from MediaCorp, the newspaper’s publisher on Thursday. No reason was given.
Online search giants Google, Yahoo and Microsoft are not doing enough to combat fraud that cost US advertisers 800 million dollars last year, a study claimed. “Google, Yahoo and MSN are stonewalling on click fraud, to their own and others’ detriments,” concluded Outsell Inc., an industry research firm based in Burlingame, California, a short distance south of San Francisco.
