News: Would you rather download a video link or access the written article?

I have noticed a lot of the news is supplied by video on the internet. I don't want to wait for a video. I can more than likely read the information I want faster than the video will load. This is an inconvenience to me. I don't understand why they don't supply a link to both. Do you prefer to download a news clip or would you rather read the article and why?

I'd rather read the article because I read better than the newscasters who might be reading the same story on a video clip. I hate people who are on tv who read like 6 year olds. Very frustrating. So, I'd rather read the article because I'm not stupid, and it'll make it easier for me to understand if I don't have to overcome listening to someone mispronouncing stuff and not reading the correct pronunciation.

Make sure you use grammar and spell check when you post to lacurandera.

I had rather access the written article because it takes me forever to download a video link...I would not mind if I had high speed internet,but they do not have it in my area,so I have dialup...My computer is a very good computer but since i live so far out it is really slow...Our phones out here is not the best either...we are planning to move soon and when we do, then i plan to get high speed....When I get something with a video that i have to download ,i usually just delete it....

We got dsl about 1 1/2 years ago and I don't want to wait 15 seconds to a minute to download a news clip. Maybe I am impatient but I think they should at least give a choice. I don't watch news on tv so I want as much as news as I can get in the shortest period of time.
