Please Stop With The Auto Play Videos

Please stop using auto playing videos in news articles. If the video adds something to the content of the article that’s great, have the video there but allow me to click play when I’m ready. It’s particularly annoying when I’m on my phone where I only have a finite amount of data and speed. Nothing like full volume startling you when you’re trying to read the news first thing in the morning.

Most of the time the videos are just fluff anyways for people who’ve got too short of an attention span to read an story.
