Blocked news feed Ads still being thrown at me

Blocked “the onion” ads because , why wouldn’t you?
It’s just utter trash.
Still in my feed though, more than before, just further down.
Can anyone help me get a better feed of actual news and not some teenage idiot’s bile and banality.
I’m a grown up.

@louiecypher,
Just to confirm, you saw the ad, went to brave://rewards → 30-day Ad history and used the following icon to block it?

No just blocked “the onion” still receiving that bullsh@ on my start page.
Why are they still feeding that cr@p.
Don’t get me wrong I love the browser and I know it’s an rss feed not an ad (it’s still a clickbait thing) don’t click you say. I don’t and it still keeps coming. Come on have some decency Brave, there are people out there that will believe that sh-t.
Almost wants me to accept cookies.

Thanks for that tip btw :slightly_smiling_face:

@louiecypher,
If it’s not an ad, but an actual story from that site, then you need to remove the source from the list of available sites that can be displayed on Brave News. To do this:

  1. Open the New Tab Page
  2. Click on Customize
  3. Select Brave News
  4. Click on All sources
  5. Scroll down until you see The Onion (shown below)
  6. Toggle this option “off”

Stories from The Onion will no longer appear on your News feed.

thanks for the help bud
will try that but “The Fail Blog” is a persistent annoyance that just won’t go away.
A waste of bandwidth is also a waste of power, resources, time…I could go on.
These people should be summarily exposed, then lined up and abused for our entertainment, or just ground up for fertilizer.
Brave…
