Okay, I admit that while on my mobile device, I used to check news.google.com. Frequently, but I'm just done with it.

Googles Accelerated Mobile Pages is an unmitigated shit show. It benefits no one but Google. What used to be nicely formatted news on my phone has turned into a cascade of advertising and tracking. It takes considerable effort to tell the source of news stories (hello fake news) if that can be discerned at all, and it makes it impossible to share news stores or return to a story at a later date.

Seeya news.google.com. I'll just use the npr.org or bbc.uk news apps and call it a day. Let us know when Google decides to return to normal web standards.
