CNN does this on almost every page. THIS IS NO BUG.

Hi, hope you've encountered this.
Easiest way is just to describe what happens.
You open a standard site like Salon or Huffpost and click an article. On the article page you scroll down past the banner ad at the top of the page and see the title of your article, and a video for the article, something that you didn't expect to have-- and that don't want to watch.
When you scroll below that video box to get to the text of the article you're after, the video window moves itself to the right of your screen automatically and then keeps pace, moving as you scroll down the page. It plays the basic 'article'-related video, and then keeps playing, often including commercials and then continues to other video topics unrelated to your article.
(This isn't the old pop-up ad that we seem to have gotten rid of with blockers. It's from the site itself, as it contains a video 'sidebar material' for the article.)
Have you seen this 'travelling' video window?
Anyone know of a way to stop/ contain/ uninstall this particular capability?
I completely understand that sites and sponsors want to give you video whether you want it or not. And I know that's because a video goes seamlessly into a commercial. And I know they don't want you being able to just scroll down and avoid it, so they've set it up to 'travel' with your scrolling. I find this very annoying and it often blocks the text you wanted to read in the first place.
Can this be disabled ?
Thanks for looking.
