In the example I posted, there is no Exxon ad when I have AdBlock turned on. So I don't know why you're seeing it.
I have mixed feelings about ads myself. On the one hand, nothing is more annoying than having to work your way through a bunch of ads to find the real content (and pop-up ads are the worst, by far, especially on a tablet or smartphone). But on the other hand, selling ads is what provides revenue for CNN and other FREE websites. If they were to eliminate ads tomorrow, then we would be paying for their service.
