Quit making everything for your narrative!!!! We have a right to be heard. Quit turning off comments
Dave Pritchard commented
Reinstate commenting on articles! I'd really like to know why you won't do this. Please respond.
Chuck Chaney commented
Keep the comment boards shut down. It will assure the end of free speech and incite a revolution. The people that cling to their bibles and their guns are making plans to take their country back from the dictators in Washington DC,,, Called the deep state.

"Our goal is to create a safe and engaging place for users to connect over interests and passions. In order to improve our community experience, we are temporarily suspending article commenting." Your goal is to prevent people from disagreeing with your viewpoint.
Yahoot news is nothing but a FARCE that PROHIBITS LEGAL AMERICAN CITIZENS to state their opinions!!!!!
Erwin Myers commented
Yahoo, I hung with you all these weeks during your "temporary" suspension of comments. It's clear to me, and all your other commenters, that comments are gone for good. You have been given a lot of good ideas on managing the comments and you seemingly have ignored them.
I know I am just one guy but I am done. You have a world of competition out there and they welcome new folks.
Frank J Furttier commented
Your decision to remove comments from articles while running the most shocking and error filled headlines I've ever seen in media is tantamount to "inciting panic". You have turned off the ability of everyday Americans who understand the topics, may live close to reported events, or in general have the ability to explain things or challenge views in a way that helps increase perspective for readers. Your team has created an echo chamber where you can scream your opinions as inaccurately as you want and the huge following of your site has given you victims who aren't sure where to go. You should be ashamed of your actions, and you should act to undo the damage you have done to your users, your brand, and your futures. I don't think we are that far off from lawsuits aimed at media companies for tactics used like this during the pandemic and election... I think we can win.. and I think those companies that stick to this path of incitement over accuracy, especially when they take additional moves to prevent the truth from surfacing (like turning off comments) are leaving themselves wide open. Your choice, but just make peace with the fact you look like a bunch of idiots at this moment in time and it looks like you are on the wrong side of the line for a "media" company.
Steven Ferges commented
The spin on your site is painfully clear: wayyyyy left. Why not keep it fair. Seems obvious you started censorship to help get rid of Trump and he's gone. If you have any interest in fairness, either censor all hate (think of how many articles you printed spewing hate at Trump) or censor none. I would suggest censoring none.

I read an article "yesterday" (012221) regarding a Girl Scout Troop choosing to boycott this year's cookie sales as a result of their concern over the use of palm oil used to bake their cookies. I was pleased to see the availability to comment (along with OTHER READERS). Now, when I sign in to YAHOO, the feature appears to be no longer available.
What's going on, YAHOO....?
"Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn't there? Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission. How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror. I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense."

No freedom of speech here, folks!!!! Move along!!!! Move along!!!!!
Since we have a new administration in the USA, could you allow us to see comments to the news you publish, seems to me you were forced to close the comments
K C commented
The election is over, your candidate won with your help and others who are willing participants in the suppression of speech. And to think, for the past four years some fools have been attempting to compare Trump to Hitler. That's hilarious. At least let your readers respond to the lies and misinformation your own writers are pushing.
Debra Ozminski commented
you dont do anything any more but post twitter comments. And articles slaughtering the Trumps and the Republicans. The hate you spew is being blamed on others when its kept going by News Media and Social Media. Change it.
billy scott commented
BRING BACK THE COMMENTS
STEVE COWEN commented
Put comments back so we can comment on the **** you allow to poison the minds of Americans !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Notice how liberal tech has now decided to shut down FREE SPEECH of those that disagree with their view point
Clyde Spencer commented
That you haven't been able to even try changes to your comment policy puts to the lie your rationalizations about what is obviously censorship.
Gone are the days when the sentiment of Voltaire prevailed: "I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend with my life your right to say it." You are obviously more 'woke' than enlightened.
Dan Dodson commented
Stop censoring any view that does not meet your agenda!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Brian Griffin commented
Ban left wing fascists from advertising.
John Renfrow commented
You need to enable comments and stop censoring Conservative voices!!!You're supposed to be unbiased as a media outlet but that's been a lie for 4 years of the Trump administration. You're as guilty as CNN, MSNBC and the other liberally biased outlets. Ridiculous that you're claiming to be a voice for the people. Only CERTAIN people with a liberal slanted agenda!!!
