Beware of CNN and its videos....

It appears that CNN has now found further ways to negate one's ability to block videos from automatically playing.  I had stupidly left a CNN page open and subsequently blew through 369MB of data while videos kept playing.  No longer does my browser spoofer, which I had set to Android for CNN, stop videos from playing.  SMH.  What a way to waste 369MB of data.

I didn't even know that existed.  Interesting.

Re: Beware of CNN and its videos....

There aren't many text only places left. I know only 3:

CNN (https://lite.cnn.io/en)

NPR (https://text.npr.org/)

Christian Science Monitor (https://www.csmonitor.com/layout/set/text/textedition)

 

Wish there were more.
