Can you prove some source links so we can investigate?
Thanks!mark hill commented
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 ?
