I have this browser plugin that blocks third-party tracker systems from the websites I visit. I've noticed that the Washington Post has some 34 trackers. 34! The New York Times has 21, as does the National Post here in Canada.
I no longer have any sense of how the media sector earns a living, but this has to be the explanation. It's a shame they're not explaining any of it to the people who use their websites.
