Variety and less biased

Yahoo offers a much broader look at the news with many articles about human interests and not just political views about every aspect of life. Yahoo news is more enlightening and less anger. I like the news Yahoo offers. It is one of approximately 15 news feeds so I am able to see many viewpoints of what is happening in United States , from around the World.

Hate how they list x # comments but then nothing

Why do they show x # (120 comments) but when you click comments, you get that notice about it being suspended? I keep thinking someday ... If other platforms show them?

I read with interest the story from ER doctor the excuses from those who won’t/didn’t vaccinate. There was interview on tv of 4 nurses that refuse to get the vaccination. I don’t doubt the surge/lack of ICU beds, but when members of your own community don’t /refuse to vaccinate, you can’t blame the rest of us for this confusion.

Former Microsoft News user, happy to switch

I previously used the Microsoft News app because it was a clean interface with minimal ads and allowed me to select which feeds I would like to view. Sadly they tried to make their app a one size fits all design and stuffed every bit of Bing functionality into the app.

Yahoo News has a great clean design and is easy to use.
