Introducing the Fairfax autoplay snuff movie

So here’s a thought, Fairfax.

You know how you promised to stop autoplaying video?

And you know how media is suffering something of an image crisis at the moment?

How about you don’t autoplay video of a man falling to his death?

Perhaps I’m not a typical reader, but I didn’t really want to see that. But by the time I noticed the video, it was already playing, so I did. So thanks for that. It’s always nice to finish my Friday with a snuff movie.
