Please post more transcripts -- Why force me to watch a 2 minute video, when I can read the transcript in just a few seconds?

If you provide a transcript, I can quickly skim a story to see if it is of further interest, and I can slow done and read it at my own speed. Otherwise, I can quickly move on to the next story.
Why force me to spend 2 minutes (or more) watching some video,
only to find it is unimportant, not my lifestyle, or even (heaven forbid) factually incorrect, and/or merely the writer's opinion, and not factual (or fact checkable) at all?

        HATE HATE HATE video stories!!!! They should absolutely never ever be able to start without me okaying it. I open multiple tabs, and let me tell ya, when something starts talking, I tend to jump.

        But, really - enough videos.

        I don't appreciate being forced to watch a commercial to view a story or news clip either
