Should I include this in my online freelance clips even if the editing is not up to my standards?

I'm new to freelance writing online. What do I do if a website publishing my work (through a middle-man content network who pays me) edits/adds to my writing in a way that I feel detracts from the quality of the work? I only have 4 published clips so far; should I include a link to this website when clips are requested by potential employers?

I write for a gig I feel good about (I get paid by one group, they give my articles to clients in exchange for links or something?) but some of the websites my work ends up on are not the most well-made/slightly spammy. For example, they may add some text at the end of articles which are product plugs or cut sections for length in a way that hurts fluency of the article. I always get paid a fair amount right on schedule. I'm not really worried about this type of thing existing on the internet under my name; but should I send it to a potential employer who is asking for clips? Should I be alarmed by any aspect of this situation?
