George Gombossy reports:

Consumer Reports, the Bible for consumers, is accused of tracking visitors to its web site while warning its readers against the tracking practice.

AdAge says Consumer Reports uses the same kinds of tracking codes as businesses, but instead of using it to sell advertising it’s used to help sell subscriptions.

Read more on CTWatchdog. My Do Not Track Plus extension from Abine shows 9 trackers on the ConsumerReports.org site.  I wonder if the media coverage will result in them doing less tracking.
