Posting of news which requires a login or paid subscription to read stincks!
Please make it obvious which content requires an additional login or needs to be paid for. The Orlando Sentinel, for example, won't let me
Can you prove some source links so we can investigate?
And yet another. Wouldn't show the article, no way to close out subscription box.
Another. The usual suspect.

NY Post, Sarasota-Tribune, News-Chief and others both local and out of state demand you pay to read their stories that Yahoo! News post as their own stories! You have to pay to read their articles and often cannot leave their sites by clicking the back button. You have to actually close out of Edge or Firefox to be able to return to your home page. And, sometimes they change your home page to their paid 'news' sites! Don't tell me you do not know about this. After all, some of them are linked through your 'sourced' news. What are they paying you to be allowed to do this from one of "YOUR" news stories?

I have the same sentiments with Yahoo! Local News app feeding news from Fort Worth Star Telegram which are not available to read unless one signs up for a subscription. Yahoo! Please, Please stop this nonsense.
The Athens Banner on my local news feed gives me 7 free stories per month, after that I have to subscribe to read their stories. When I click on a news item from the Athens Banner, the notice is on the page. This is not news - it is advertising and I would like for that "news source" to be removed.
Local News section: The Des Moines Register is the biggest crock to Subscribe to read!

http://www.daily-jeff.com/local%20news/2015/08/10/man-found-dead-in-truck requires a subscription.
I'm wondering if Yahoo is about to go bankrupt. It obviously is selling outrageous, low-class ads. It doesn't offer any kind of tech help whatsoever, and now most of my friends, including me, are locked out of our emails and can't get to critical messages. Yahoo is offering no explanation or help. They have thumbed their noses at their customers because, I think, they have no money to continue and have pretty much abandoned their own site. Think about it: everyone complaining about the same things over and over and nothing is being done to fix anything. I truly think Yahoo is trying to sneak out the back door to avoid their obligations and protect their wallets.

It is rather obvious that Yahoo is profiting from Subscription News Feeds.
Oftentimes all the topics in my "News" column are willed with feeds that require paid subscriptions.
The obvious answer is that Yahoo is receiving payment from these news feeds for pushing their content, in hopes that I'll sign up for a yearly subscription.
Time to remove the News column from my homepage.Once that's gone, what's stopping me from changing my home page ?
