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 simply aggregate current events, but you should let people choose the brand of hyper-partisan garbage opinions they want on their feed. Let the conservatives have garbage like Fox News and Newsmax on their feeds and let the liberals have garbage like Huffington Post and MSNBC on their feeds, but you should let people delete propaganda sources they don't like from their newsfeeds.
Thank you for your feedback on this. Our product team has added a feature that will allow you to see less of the publishers that you don’t want to see on Yahoo News. The steps to do so can be found here: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/homepage/sln29105.html

My relationship with Yahoo is now ending. I've been a faithful Yahoo email user and reader for years. It's clear you've chosen to add to the current political bias instead of just reporting the news. The Huffington Post is not a credible source for unbias news. Bye bye Yahoo

I don't appreciate liberal "I'm a victim" news. That is so pathetic and weak. Give me a choice of what and who I get news from.

Does yahoo review ANY of these? How many requests are there to have Huffington Post removed from news feeds? We should have that option and not be subjected to the propagation of hate and negativity. Why are we forced to be subjected to this? What is the Agenda?

Add a feature so that we can choose our news sources. Fake news sites like The Huffington Post just post stupid misleading biased ****.
Please, please ,please return to a time when I could delete all the inane celebrity "news" from the Yahoo home page. I had finally gotten the Yahoo home page to a place where I could peruse the news of the world, but since you have "updated" the site, all the terrible celebrity "news" has returned with a vengeance! I don't want to see it!! Is my only recourse having to leave yahoo, and find somewhere else?
