Allow manual hiding of certain media sources
I understand why Yahoo! would allow a large spectrum of sources to post on the news feed. But certain end users, like myself, are never going to click on certain sources. Since I will never, never take investment advice from certain sources, not just the sketchy ones but I would also never click on a CNBC article, Yahoo! should consider allowing me to block certain sources. All the junk sources that I have to filter through detracts my willingness to use this app. It could potentially be a huge differentiator for Yahoo! Savvy users could filter sources, meanwhile, you could still have the average joe clicking on the "market realist" articles and others that I personally would never, ever read. Thank you for any consideration.

Please allow someone to block certain sources of news from your business/ stock news threads especially political opinion pieces.

User should be able to opt out of “news” sources like click bait monger Market Realist and their ilk. Tired of seeing junk and fake headlines distracting me from actual useful information.

The Finance app flagged a political story about Doug Ford in Canada as a story about Ford Motor. The algorithm should be improved.
These are junk articles and they just clog up the news portion of the app. They're all the same and have no pertinent information.
I own shares of Ford. Each day I get half a dozen or more stories from cheat sheet that have little or nothing to do with the actual stock value. Are Ford and other car companies mentioned, Yes. Is it useful information, No. Stop subscribing to it and pushing it through to the news feed, please. Thanks for reading this
For company news of a stock, there are many **** news feeding from Zacks, Markit, Capital Cube, and so on. They are useless and annoying. How to get rid of them so only news from good sources, such as AP and Bloomberg, can be seen? That is, is there any way to allow user to chose the news sources he/she is interested in?
They just make stuff up. They are either trying to get people to go a certain way to help them or just like making stuff up to watch the confusion.
