The editing of grammar and spelling in the articles need to be addressed
Unfortunately, spell checks and grammatical evaluations seem to be absent in many of the articles I read.
Hi there, I’m sorry to hear that! We’d like to further investigate this, can you message us directly on Twitter at @YahooCare or on Facebook on our Yahoo Customer Care page? We would need the article URL and the spelling/grammar error. In case you do not have a social media account, please contact us at help.yahoo.com

Your headlines consistently abuse the English language. They show a complete ignorance of grammar and usage, and it detracts from both the ability to understand them and what little credibility they have left.

Your home page headlines are full of errors in basic English.
Verbs don't agree with the subject in number (singular subject but plural verb form or plural subject with singular verb form.
Wrong prepositions used after verbs (it's "arrived AT" not "arrived to" and "based ON" not "based off of" ).
You need to hire proofreaders who are professionals and native speakers.

"Arrest made after school bus driver ran over in Brooklyn".
How is this considered well written?
The proper heading should've been.
"Man arrested after running over bus driver in Brooklyn."
"Man arrested for intentionally running over bus driver in Brooklyn"
You get the gist!
I'm looking for work as a writer, let me know if you're interested in someone who can actually write proper copy!

If you're responsible for final edits in print, please don't spell simple words incorrectly.

Today, Jan. 21, 2021, on the Yodel story "How 'Hamilton' helped poet Amanda Gorman beat speech impediment", the female reporter twice mispronounced the word "written" as "wri-en". This is a glaring error and I believe it should be pointed out to her that this is not correct. I hope you take action on this. It's very disheartening to hear this on a report that should be very professional. Thank you, ****
