That's not opening for me, but I've been getting those fake news links on My Yahoo (the Yahoo news page you can customize). They have a label saying "ad," but they're formatted (headline, picture) like the other headlines and placed right between them.

The link works for me, but I'm browsing anonymously without ad blocker.
