How can we improve Yahoo News?

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.

    Not all of us have any interest in business news, sports, celebrities, religion, politics, etc.so let us opt-out of those completely. That's block them completely, not "reduce" or "minimize" them. I'm getting tired of seeing so much junk I have no interest in that I've started going to other sites for the news I want, and not Yahoo.

    Allow users to turn off yahoo news from home page. so we dont have to read the stpidity of your reporters

    Please add the option to remove posting sources like Huff Post. They are misleading, biased, and basically laughable. It is truly annoying when you ask for fewer posts from them and my home page has 14 posts from them. If you want to be the Huff Post publisher change your name to Democrathoo.

    Why can I no longer delete news sources I do not want to see??? National review, Kardashians, News Max? It seems I used to be able to delete a source, but not now.

    I said I will not have websites pushing Ocasio-Cortez on my computer and three hours later you concocted yet another story about her so you are gone Yahoo! Bye bye.

    I have a rule in my house, no AOC and I will block anyone that breaks that rule. I would hate to block you because I already have so many news outlets blocked for that reason and I am NEVER going to shut off my ad/popup blockers. That leaves very few sources for news, but if I see that Sander's bot's face here one more time you are gone.

    I agree with having an option to block a source completely. I'd also like to be able to block categories. No entertainment, no lifestyle, no celebrity, no Libidiocy , just actual news without fluffy opinions added or half the story omitted because it doesn't fit the Socialist narratives.

    Make it a choice for users, "Fake see less of" or "Full block" on sources. How many times does a user have to click on the "see less of" option before Yahoo stops including more from that source?

    Why do you bother having the option - which is clearly a LIE - to "Show Less" of fake news sources on the homepage if you aren't going to honor it? The fake news sources - Clown News Network, HuffingPaint, USELESS lifestyle news, et al not only keep showing up EVERY day, but at the TOP.

    Make it work and stop lying. Better yet make a BLOCK. I don't want fake news on my feed. While some is it comes from Conservatives who I have an issue with, 95% comes from fake liberal news. Always hateful, always miserable, always whining, always intolerant. Don't want it.

    Today is the 20th day I have had to once again select Huff Post, among other "selected publishers" that keep showing up the next day as not selected! Do you frigging idiots have a clue to what is wrong....or better yet, you've been instructed not to care! One way or the other let the users know so we don't keep waking you up from your naps.... or kissing the bosses *****...!

    What is the point of the 'Show Me Less From' option, when 1) It does not show me any less (or it shows me the same article from a different source) and 2) I have blocked 70 - 80 news outlets as 'show less from', as I stated, I still see just as much, and to add INSULT to injury, when I click to see less (again) I notice that most of the outlets that I 'blocked' are no longer on the list - do you just erase them? My preferences mean jack **** to you?

    My new idea is to start writing to people who advertise on your service and explain to them that I will not buy their goods and services because they are affiliated with you. And I don't mean an email or type written letter. When someone takes the time to HAND WRITE a letter, then you get their attention.
