CNN question

Did something happen in the last week or so where EVERY topic on the CNN page has a video that automatically begins playing when you click on the story? I've pointedly ignored the stories in the past that have the camera by them as I have a crappy internet connection, and just in general would prefer to read my articles rather than have them read to me.

Anyone else notice this or am I just the lucky one?

1. It happens at lots of websites,

 

unfortunately.

And I almost never want to see a video; I'd much rather read the story myself.

2. Many website are transitioning to video-based rather than text-based sites to accommodate the numbers

of people using tablets and phones for browsing. I agree it sucks.
