French news sites are telling readers to uninstall their ad blockers before accessing their content

A group of some of the biggest French news sites including Le Monde and Le Parisien are either asking or forcing users to uninstall their ad blockers before they can access news content. This unified approach was organized by a trade organization representing online businesses, and includes non-news sites such as French music streaming service Deezer. While Le Monde still allows users with ad blockers installed to access their site, other news sites such as L’Equipe and Le Parisien are requiring users to remove the blockers.
