Why do so many here hate on Castanet?

I never understood the hate for castanet on this subreddit. I tried using KelownaNow after reading so many "If you don't want to give crapstanet a view" replies, but the KelownaNow app is riddled with advertisements that break up the articles. It wasn't easy to see where a paragraph ended and where a new one started because of that. On Castanet, the ads are at the bottom, their info is easily understandable, and I only click on news I care about. I've been checking the app about thrice a week, and have done so since 2016. I get it that their design is outdated, but I prefer simplicity over ad riddled content.

Castanet is now advertising for anti-maskers

I'm not linking it because I don't want to give it even more attention, but Castanet has a Vernon article where they felt the need to literally advertise for an anti-mask rally complete with email. I think this should be reported somewhere, is there anyplace to do this? I sent them an email stating how stupid that is.

Food Hoarders Anxious - Another Terrible Headline from Castanet

https://www.castanet.net/news/Canada/319466/Food-insecurity-during-COVID-19-pandemic-linked-to-poor-mental-health-StatCan#319466

The article discusses how food insecurity makes people anxious (i.e. people who do not reliably have enough food). Castanet somehow equates this to hoarders and linked a video from the spring with the couple who were buying up all the meat at one grocery store. The article also doesn't link to the report it references. What a joke.
