How can we improve Yahoo News?

I want to customize the stories on my news feed! I am REALLY sick of getting stories about murder, animal abuse, genocide, etc. ENOUGH

I don't want to get depressed or outraged every time I check the news feed-- 90% of the stories I get are gruesome, and if I had young ones around while scanning my news- they'd be traumatized. Some of them traumatized me, and I am an adult!

    I like to be able to sort the Yahoo Wold News by date, I am getting old news on top. If this option exist, please let me know how.

    Keep the news seperate from the rest of the garbage i avoid, put celebrities in the entertainment section. Put sports in the sports section and so on. I get tired of having to look at useless celebrities and over paid sports stars that think their opinions should rule the world. Do these people pay you to keep them in the limelight, it is getting old seeing constant selfies about so called stars that i could care less about.

    I'm tired of seeing frivolous celebrity "news" headlines. I don't want to see "less" of that, I want the option of not seeing content from such sites altogether.

    I'm sick of all the negative political **** dominating my news feed.

  • donald dittmer commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Allow personalized selection of feeds, when I open with Bing, I have removed most of the Political and entertainment news in place of local, science, investing and uplifting news. I feel more relaxed. Politics and the supporters are disrespectful and I don't need my issues exasperated by nonsense.

    I do not care about the news nothing everytime I open yahoo I get ******. So why am I forced to see this ****. Are you communist taking my right of choice to lay out my home page?

  • andrew gordon commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I do not care about: sports stars personal lives, Kardashians, movie stars personal lives, Let individuals select what news they want to appear on their Yahoo homepage.

    Give us the tools to block fake Fox News and other propaganda sites masquerading as news.

    I want to be able to filter the type of new content I am fed. I have no interest in anything related to entertainment or celebrity. In fact, it make me angry to have to even see these articles. I don't care who wore what to what event, or who is dating who or who is saying what about who. The entertainment industry has become a cesspool and i want out. These stories are a waist of my time and energy and if you can help me filter them out then I will get my new from another source.

    I keep clicking on 'Show Less From' this source - where is the button to stop ALL from a source? I hate sports, I don't care to see it. I hate the kardashians, don't want to see it - perhaps I will have to find a service that allows me to pick what I want to see.

    By the way - that 'Show Less From' BS does not work... I keep getting the same **** from the same **** producers.

    I don't want to see Sports or Celebrity content. Any of it. No amount of telling your current option "See Less From $SOURCE" actually reduces the amount that displays on the home page. I would have expected different stories from other news sources to take their place when I hit that. Nope, more Celebrity and Sports garbage from different sources AND the originals.

    I need to drop the whole category, clearly, so you stop serving it.

    I wish there was a place i could block the word "Kardashians". Then, after that, i would receive no more "news" on he Kardashians. It's worthless information to me. I don't want to see it.
