This has been going on for more than a day. You know damned well the bed wetting liberals at the site know how to "fix" it. Instead they delay. "describe the problem in detail" "we're working on it" "can you send us a screenshot?"BS Commie bigots.

From the remarks or comments made by others, it appears that the Yahoo staff doesn't care about this problem.

News article cover whatever article you attempt to read or attempt to reply to. There is no escaping it. News article videos ruin the Yahoo experience.
Clay Martin commented
It really is ridiculous that your news site has ads covering up articles, and worse, you aren't able to remove the ad. With all of the typos, errors, and sloppiness on the yahoo news website, this really may be the final reason to stop reading yahoo news.
Andrew Piehl commented
Quit covering your homepage news articles with ads, rendering them useless. I will quit using the service if it is not rectified. To rectify, kindly place ads on the side where they belong.
Fernando Monay commented
I'm having the same issue. I am using chrome and while I can see the article as I scroll down the ads that are on the side move over the articles. Long time user of Yahoo news but this is a deal breaker.
Dan Childers commented
My browser is Yahoo. ALL articles are affected. This is a pagination problem, not rocket science. Fix it.

Thank you for your reply. In response to your questions:
1. I have experienced this in both Safari and Chrome
2. This happens after I have clicked into the article
3a. I don't know if it happens on all articles, but I would say over 70% of the articles I click on would have this. An example would be: https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/kevin-hart-facing-backlash-recent-184113977.html
b. I would click on the article to open it
4. Too many to name. Every time I see it, I just close the article because I can't read the article anymore.
5. Display ads
6. If you provide an email address, I can send you a screen shot.

There is now a glitch on Chrome when trying to read individual news items. When I scroll down on the article text obliterated by adds that were previously on the side. Makes it impossible to read the entire article. This just started happening recently.

2. After clicking on the article
3.a. All articles, b. click to open
4. Ads are always different, here are some links: https://beap.gemini.yahoo.com/mbclk?bv=1.0.0&es=dbLfQz0GIS94orFxRi4eTK7aTWEpbaDCaA2l9vE560oATt4ye4X3cXAu7LPDzasFdM.TsvhCNRApoUQzW216Rm3fJDc6junPvgl.tdtxOxHiWrI2yar5r0um1A_WKmbBRu4zMINdh_0EUqvAkOD3GcmT6ffXN1jTCkukFmG8_j3UgEO.3PRjOdzpMQh6F1tU9IICrzHUZ2A8brzx2IHRY5v1Cn13D6IQje2u0Ev5oA8K1oHdxQBbePXaA_3aF.L0H_jLCu_fTqDEsqQNFTUTnAkT8N6NlX0Gzk7C_kNmXsZg97nFI15o3HwNuJ3OtE5mLXqDusbHPa_zd_J8OvMwPxjJdAsgsNwGEH6K8AoPepDcgrlzWKH1cQG9cZKxAkDWFBgrAP_VXImSjsWG0gcvvzLtxYF1TNE05gl.VYQx22CM411CjIstFDZIMvX7_7DkxfdMe0E5va.HQ_iSRAcDdDAuJyVKGA8ai._zeUJE5mxJjkT86TjyEW_CH35.hdskUKeH8OlAYfu7Th_DzC7akyxquhvqgI8Lb4o4wEnBx7Kpev95uoo4OA0ssXW_hobS75nuuYd6KKvwaN7CQiyJIJuFbP3GSsE-%26lp=
5. they all appear to be display ads
6. I cannot add screen shots, but ad's overlay on left side of articles
2) After clicking article
3) It is happening when I scroll through the article specifically comment section
4) not ads but pictures with links to other articles ( I have screen shots of one)
5)display --- have not tried video articles but the videos are on top not where I scroll down
6)snipping will not save it -- I realize it is the articles and ads that show on the right side of the articles that transpose as an overlay on the left.

J Park commented
I came here to complain about the same thing. Here are my answers:
1. What browser are you using when encountering this issue? Chrome, most updated version on a 1 year old Dell computer with Windows 10 that is updated automatically
2. Does this happen when you are on news.yahoo.com or after you have clicked into the article? This happens while scrolling down on an article clicked on from the home page, the finance page, the politics page. You get to read the first part of the article fine, but it's when you have to scroll to finish the article.
3. If this happens when opening a news article:
a. Does this happen on all articles or just some? All. Does not happen when opening article--but it is every article that is clicked on if you have to scroll. Link: https://www.yahoo.com/news/shepard-smith-donald-trump-hurricane-dorian-lies-fake-news-defined-fox-000653944.html
b. Do you click on the article to open it or are you right clicking to open the article in a new tab? Click to open in same tab
4. Please list the names of the ads that are covering up content.

and then they stop scrolling, they are just stuck there. It is literally EVERY SINGLE AD from the right moving to the left
5. Is this happening on video ads or display ads? display ads that are mostly click bait
6. Please provide a screenshot of the issue. how do I post the screen shots? I have them
Patti Dunham commented
Why are ads loading on top of content, it's impossible to read any stories, why is this happening, it started on 9/5/2019. If this is not corrected ASAP, I will no longer use Yahoo News or email.
Riva Wharton commented
I will quit using Yahoo as my search if this continues. I will be reading a story and advertisements from the right hand side of the page pop up and I can't continue reading it. Have to go over to a different news source each time. I am going to just begin to do that if this continues.
Mindy M commented
This has been happening the last couple days and is totally frustrating!
Brad N commented
Doesn't make any sense to prevent your subscribers from seeing your content with the ads shifting over from the right side to the left side. Soon you'll have your subscribers "shifting" over to other sources. Please fix - this topic should be #1
Devin Diaz commented
The advertisements that used to be on the right side of the screen now are transferring to the middle of the page when scrolling down making it impossible to read the news articles now. This started happening yesterday. Its not just on only one PC because I have checked and it happened on multiple PCs. I wish I could send a screenshot, but there is nowhere to do that.
