CNN broadcasting online free? Hogging my bandwidth...

I noticed my bandwidth graphs were a little out of whack tonight and after
much digging through pcap files I found that my chrome tab with 'cnn.com'
had a live stream of cnn playing on the right side halfway down.
It seems this started around 8am this morning and it was a macromedia tcp
flash stream on port 1935.
Did they decide to give free CNN to everyone today? Or is this a goof?
Either way it chewed up a lot of my bandwidth which doesn't come cheap
here in Canada, eh?
Also, sometimes it says:
Watch CNN will resume momentarily
on the feed but it's still pushing traffic. What a pain!
Turning off the 'free' Piers Morgan feed now...
