I'm about done with Fox News on cable and now even their web site. Every single story you click on launches a video player that starts playing automatically and the video has nothing to do with the story you want to read. You can turn off "auto play" but it doesn't stay off. Just venting. Drudge jumped the shark so its really just Breitbart and Bongino right now.

Download and install AdBlock or AdblockPlus extensions for Chrome, Firefox, IE, Safari, Edge. Opera, and Yandex browsers. Online you'll only receive one banner from FOX News when you fire up their homepage asking you to disable the Adblocker ("We've got news for you"! meaning they have ads for you), but you just X out the banner and go about your business. These extensions also eliminate the annoying ads on YouTube, and they're both FREE (but they ask for donations). Check both out below:

Get AdBlock here...

Or get AdblockPlus here...

Oh, and about the videos playing...run the page down until the smaller version of the video window shows up on the right side and X it out and it will stop playing.

Thanks. I have the ad blockers and the pop up is annoying. The auto play video is damn near a deal breaker. I'm too old and intolerant of intrusive tech that I can't control.

Keep up. Never let yourself fall behind. It requires some effort, but I think it's worth it.

I never went to their web site but I am sure there are better than Fox and GTPI to get sane conservative news.
