    No More CNN For Me! Too Many Videos!

    I just wanted to complain that I go to CNN.com everyday and there isn't even much to read because 90% of their headlines take you to a video. Each video has to not only load, but put you through a 15 or 30 second commercial before getting to what you want. I'd rather read and skim through.

    So, I think I'm done with them. It will suck having to type out a more complicated url to get to my news, but what other news sites do you folks recommend?

    I go to Yahoo and look at their news feeds...all videos are on a separate area and they always have an article for both national, world, and city news, if you set preferences.

    I also hate the videos and such.

    i don't know why you all watch the news. just live in your own world like me, it's great knowing stupid stuff isn't going to be on tv!
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    I use MSNBC.com, not allot of video at all and good content. When CNN changed their webpage about a year ago is when I stopped using them.

    CNN has changed the layout of their site. I'm glad they listen to me.

    http://www.cnn.com/

    It's much more visually pleasing, and videos are separated.

    I go to Reuters for my news source. The Drudge Report is nice too.
