CNN Owes me $0.01 x 100

I check the news on a number of websites somewhat frequently. I visit a number of sites to try go get an overall view of what's really going on - including CNN.

Now, I decide to watch one of the videos on CNN for which they never bother posting the actual story text (even though it appears it is syndicated as other news sites are carrying identical copies of the same article - go figure). I click and am greeted with a video player page.

An ad pops up at the beginning - Oh Boy! - 15 seconds of babble. I wait.

I then am able to watch a portion of the video before it stalls completely. Then it recovers, plays, and then stalls again. I never had any stalls during playing of the commercial.

This routinely happens on CNN ... so far I'm guessing about a 100 times. I figure CNN probably makes a penny for a video ad (I'm guessing - don't know the actual value) so...

CNN - you owe me a $1.00 as reimbursement for your ill-gotten gains.
