I agree 100%.

I have also not liked CNN for news but before the new change. I don't like getting videos instead of written stories and more than once clicked on one of their headlines to have to quickly cut it off. Having a dish limits my bandwidth and videos eat it up which eventually puts me on slow speed-- never fun. My favorite general news site is Google for being simple, lots of headlines then I go to newspaper sites which can also be good. MSNBC isn't at the top either. For opinion, I like Huffington which mixes some news with a lot of opinion pieces often by writers I would not find elsewhere.

I agree... just a few seconds on the site and aesthetically it kills me, not to mention the poor content!

At one time CNN's site started to look a bit dated, and they revamped to the version they were using just before this ugly change. I can't imagine why they thought they needed another change- especially this aesthetically unappealing one. Maybe they commissioned a study and were told that people would spend more time on the site if they revamped in this manner. Well, I don't want to spend more time on a site if it's due to hunting down stories. The New York Times website has always been a favorite of mine and is now my preference for news.
