  1. Yahoo News leaning left

    Under current Yahoo leadership I have witnessed a distinct tilt to the left in reporting, story selection. It is imperative that your news pages reflect a unbiased and balanced reportage. At the moment they do not! You have strayed from the tenets of journalism in favor of endorsing a left leaning ideology. As a long time Yahoo fan I am disappointed. You have taken sides and are now alienating over one half of the US population. Big mistake.

  2. I want to READ articles, NOT WATCH videos

    I click on articles to READ them NOT WATCH them. I am sick of clicking on a text headline online to be taken to a video. If you offer it in video, offer it in text too!! If I click on a headline and it takes me to a video I immediately close it.

  3. Sponsored "articles" are ruining my Yahoo experience.

    I have been a faithful Yahoo user since the 90s. One used to be able to find the account date in account information, but that seems to have moved, I know my account dates back to at least 1998 and I have been on Yahoo daily since that time.

    I used to spend time browsing headlines and clicking through to read many articles from your home page. However since the inception of sponsored content, I avoid the Yahoo home page.

    I understand the need to generate profit but when every other "article" listed on the home page is in fact…

  4. Stop showing disgusting images of child abuse!!

    My heart sinks when you have so many - too many! - stories about child abuse. child left in hot car, child drowned in pool, family killed by dad - IS THIS NEWS?? It's sad and tragic, but it pains me to be inundated with these depressing stories. (btw: please kill your kardashian stories - they are meaningless people)...

  5. Stop Animal Cruelty stories

    Please STOP with these horrible animal cruelty stories on your front page each day!!!! I literally get sick seeing "Dog dragged behind van" and "Dog's mouth taped shut." Let the cops and local authorities handle these things. You are giving animal abusers ideas and attention.
    Please stop!

  6. Less articles about children being abused

    Please post less news articles about children being physically and/or sexually abused. I can't browse Yahoo News without seeing disturbing headlines involving children. It's traumatizing even for your readers to hear these stories.

  7. Stop autoplaying videos on the Yahoo News home page

    I see a lot of complaints about videos autoplaying when news articles are opened. That's annoying because it is unnessarily chewing up bandwidth. Recently when I first go to the Yahoo news home page, a video autoplays on the upper right side of the screen. I find this *extremely* annoying. I've used Yahoo News as my primary online news source for at least 12 years and now I think I need to look at less intrusive alternatives.

    Yahoo used to have a well organized news section. Now it's a joke.

  10. too much left wing propaganda not enough balanced reporting or real news.

    your bias is too obvious, your unremitting support of the Obama admin has helped this admin to destroy my profession and plave my family at risk, either start reporting without bias or we will surely use another email provider...lots of options, do not need your continuous barrage of hateful divisive and destructive bias. your "journalists" write with malice towards those who would not agree...just report the facts and WE THE PEOPLE will decide an opinion...when "journalists" rise to the same level of education as my family and friends, we will ask them for their opinions when needed...

  11. Let people pick their sources

    You have a problem when give people the choice of what SUBJECT they do and don't wanna hear, but you don't let them pick and choose their SOURCES. I occasionally get get "news" from "news"max, a hyper partisan, absurdly right wing propaganda outlet that doesn't actually report on anything aside from fake news that riles up conservatives, and it's nothing I want anywhere near my feed. You should let people choose whether or not they want any certain non-yahoo, Reuters, or AP article on their feed. I understand, yahoo wants people to read yahoo articles, and Reuters and Associated Press…

  12. Allow us to block content by the content provider. I don't want to see FOX News or MSNBC in my news feed.

    Right now when you try to "see fewer like this" in your news feed, you only get the option to remove content about subjects. I don't mind seeing an article about a particular entertainer, athlete, or even politician. What I do mind is biased editorials masquerading as news from outlets like the NY Post, FOX News, MSNBC, etc. I want to block the content from them entirely. Make this possible.

  13. How Come Yahoo "News" Features Almost All Young Liberal "Writers"?

    My idea is fair, neutral reporting -- not just the liberal blather Yahoo "News" presently consists of.

  15. Start putting real news in the news section.

    Most articles are from liberal blogs like Daily Best, Atlantic Wire, AFP, NCC and etc. It's long past the point where I'll click on an article because it's on a subject that's interesting to me - you get too much garbage that way. It's gotten to the point where I can't find anything to read from a source that won't just print lies to push their ideology.

    I've noticed a consistent liberal bias to many of the stories you choose to include, and it seems to be getting worse over the past several months.

    I'm switching to Google News, and will recommend to my friends to do the same. Overall Google's approach seems much more even-handed.

  17. More accurate reporting of Obamacare. All of your news articles seem to support the ACA using inaccurate numbers or false information.

    Yahoo consistently publishes articles claiming the continued success of Obamacare, despite the majority of Americans lack of support for it and its failure. Your 'reporters' need to either stop pulling information soley from Barack Obama's website, or learn how to research both sides of an issue to publish a fair and balanced article.

  18. Remove Daily Beast articles from the news section.

    Today's headline from the Daily Beast was "Paul Ryan: Still a Total Jerk". How can you possibly justify calling that news? Put NEWS in the news feed. I go there for news, not for hate rants.

  19. Fake, Biased News Sources

    More and more I am reading inflammatory articles written by suspect news sources about the President and Democratic figures. Though Yahoo has been my homepage since at least 1995, I am about to rip Yahoo from my daily usage. I cannot subscribe to such drivel, falsehood, and political propaganda. Yahoo is quickly turning into Fox News.
