    Ever since the Capitol riot, Yahoo has brought us photos and videos focused on each individual involved, claimed we need to remove free speech from the internet, and encouraged family members to turn eachother in: none of which Yahoo did during the much deadlier BLM riots over the summer. Yahoo gives us all of the info: name, occupation, history, etc. of each and every person there, but they didn't think we needed any such coverage regarding looters and arsonists in BLM. Today, they brought us this ridiculous video analyzing the "hate symbols" worn in the Capitol riots: "This guy made an 'OK' hand signal, this guy appears to be wearing a Bugs Bunny tattoo, lots of people wearing yellow", sort of thing. "We're not sure if the protestors understand the significance of their hand signals, tattoos, or colors" yada yada. Yahoo's bias has always been rather maddening when they aren't busy being laughable.

    I know you posted this 4 years ago, and all they've done since is remove the comments section so they can misquote Trump and we can't call them out anymore. Today, Ben Werschkul, who is apparently Yahoo's Senior Producer and Writer at Yahoo Finance, claimed Trump had called Mexican immigrants "rapists". In reality, what Trump said was "I speak with border guards, and they tell me what we are getting. Some are criminals, some are rapists and some, I assume, are good people, but we aren't getting Mexico's best and brightest". In other words, Trump clarified that he is quoting border guards regarding which Mexicans are coming here ILLEGALLY (border guards don't deal with legal immigration), and that some of those (surprise, surprise) are criminals, so we do better to stick with LEGAL immigration in order to get Mexico's best and brightest. Naturally, though, Yahoo has removed our ability to correct their misquote on their site, so I am left no choice but to do it here instead. They've forced us into their echo chamber and then they wonder why their audience is leaving.

    I totally agree. Yahoo, although I'm a lesbian, when I see men insult women or people insult gays in the comments section, even when those are top rated comments, I don't go crying in fear from my laptop. That's my opportunity to argue with them and, even if the person I disagreed with doesn't change his mind, my ability to put the information out there might change the minds of other readers. This also allows me to read why we have conflicts and disagreements in the first place. My ability to persuade does not depend on you silencing my opponents, and the same goes for you. You are a news source, but something is wrong if your ability to persuade relies so heavily on silencing your readers. If you seriously can't persuade your opponents without removing their voice, your opinions might just be wrong.

    Right now, we have the ability to vote comments up or down. The only ones that get voted up, that I've seen, are those correcting misinformation in the article. For instance, where the article says "Trump called the coronavirus a hoax", the top comment will say "Here's where Snopes explains this Yahoo article is lying." with a link. That's not hateful. That's just correcting Yahoo's lies. Hateful is allowing defamation to continue, uncorrected.

    The Yahoo moderator has repeatedly turned benign words in my posts to cuss symbols in order to give the false impression I used a racial slur in my comment merely because I'm conservative. Here is the latest example:

    On the article “Charmed Star Holly Marie Combs Slams Trump For Her Grandfathers’ COVID-19 Death”, a commenter pointed out the media has blamed Trump entirely for the coronavirus. Somebody responded by asking if the commenter would give Obama a free pass. The word "free" was not turned into cuss symbols in his question. So I pointed out “The media has given Obama a free pass for his expansion of the national debt and handling of the H1N1 flu”.

    The yahoo moderator turned my comment into “The media has given Obama a #$%$ pass” to give the false impression I had cussed or used a racial slur. Why is the Yahoo moderator turning the word “free” into cuss symbols, and why only in MY posts? Oh, I know: Because I’m conservative, so Yahoo’s moderator wants people to think I’m using racial slurs.

    Today, the Yahoo moderator decided I could not comment on, nor post links to, reports from the Center for Disease Control or US News because the reports state that a record number of American children have died from this year's flu. It's still flu season, but the Yahoo moderator won't allow me to warn anyone! It's apparently because these links also admit it is the H1N1 flu strain that has returned to kill so many kids. There is not a news source that admits how deadly this season's flu has been for children without admitting the virus strain. What can I do when children are dying? How do I warn people? He is the moderator right now as I am typing this. Please replace this yahoo moderator with one who likes children. Here are the links I can't post or make relevant comments about:

    https://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/index.htm
    https://www.usnews.com/news/health-news/articles/2020-03-20/coronavirus-pandemic-overshadows-a-deadly-flu-season

    If you have a child who dies from this year's flu, please sue Yahoo for blocking the information I tried to post in my attempts to warn you.

    I know how you feel, Rodney. Today, the yahoo moderator refused to post this comment:

    "I have a twin and we were both physically abused by our mother because she was jealous that we were twins. My grandmother had indulged my mother, trying to ensure my mother never had to experience jealousy, so my mother grew jealous of others easily. She found an excuse to beat us every month of our lives just to ensure our childhood wasn't any happier than hers had been because we were twins."

    The yahoo moderator refused to post it, so I took out the part about my mother being indulged and tried to post it again with no indication of this, but he still wouldn't post it. I have enough evidence to fill a library that my mother was spoiled, but I don't see any other commenters having to prove their opinions in the yahoo comments just to get them posted. If your moderator doesn't think spoiled children grow up to be bad parents, then what type of parents does he think they grow up to be?
