Dodgy scare mongering financial ads on The Verge

Today, alongside the fairly reliable, fairly well written articles of The Verge, I was surprised to spot a fairly large ad for something pretty disreputable. It links to a scare mongering campaign that uses some pretty questionable editorial techniques, and Fox News levels of statistical misuse, to try and persuade you to sign up for an expensive subscription. It is also a not exactly politically neutral, which may or may not be a concern for your featured ad spots. I hit the "do not show me this again" button, but perhaps you can review it yourselves and decide whether it fits well with the Verge house style?

Thanks,

Mark.
