Biased, and Even Lie They are Bias
Yahoo responded to my review and said, “We offer news coverage from a variety of sources, and some lean more liberal while others lean more conservative. We work hard to present a balanced view of the news from a variety of perspectives across the political spectrum.” Yahoo is the biggest joke. Any id*ot will tell you that this response to my review is a huge lie. Now back to my original review below. The application itself works ok but a little glitchy. What I don’t like is the liberal loony tune articles that are clearly pushing a leftist agenda. Yes, fake news has been published on yahoo until it was exposed by conservative news outlets: the Covington fiasco, the BuzzFeed Mueller lie, Smollett to name a few. Be warned that yahoo will rarely post anything from conservative networks or news sites; they have no problem admitting they are a bias left news outlet. If they say otherwise, they lie. And most liberals like it because it is a place for them to vent their frustration against conservatives even if the news is manipulative or full of half truths.
It’s FAKE NEWS but
As the title states. I mean cmon, it’s owned by Verizon. Without going into detail if you follow this rabbit hole it eventually leads to followers of Satan. By why throw such a wet towel on a Monday right ? Here’s why I like the yahoo news thing. The stories are always meant to divide the Masses. The truth seekers vs the zombies. The comment section is the ONLY reason that this app is worth downloading. I enjoy calculating the % of the pop which is autistic and the pop who are like minded as myself. Thankfully, even in this left wing (over the cliff) news outlet I see 75% of ppl that are aware of the MSM BS. As for the 25% it’s the same as watching something like Jerry springer. It always makes you feel better about yourself when you know that their are ppl like make an avg intelligent person like me look like I’m Einstein
Has really gone downhill
This used to be my go to news app for years. Not any longer. 1. Loud videos suddenly start. I’ve searched settings and cannot find a way to stop loud videos from jarringly startling me. I read late at night and in quiet places. I want control of the sound and Yahoo has wrestled that control away. Non negotiable. 2. They have changed the format to slow moving pictures with a few words underneath. Slow, uninformative, and a major waste of time. Uninformative. 3. The whole app has moved towards a stylistic look and away from a news feed. Glam over substance. If I wanted some stylistic slick app, I would download one. What a shame. 4. I want news. Just news. Articles with a headline and something to read, along with a simple photo or two. The news is no longer first and forefront on this app. What happened to this NEWS app? I deleted the app after the recent terrible changes. Waited a few weeks and decided to try again. Reloaded it just now. Second story I clicked on immediately had a loud. Loud. Loud. LOUD newscaster blabbering on. It was jarring and uninvited. It wasn’t labeled as a video, looked like a news story. Again checked settings, unable to mute the news videos Deleted the app again. Going back to other news feeds
Underhanded Review Promotion
The major issue I have still comes down to disingenuously selecting people to write reviews. When the app asks if you “love it” (the app), if you select “no”, it loops you out to either an in-house “review” or leads you to a dead end broken link. It only leads you here if you select “yes”. As such, the review ratings are entirely meaningless. Their “4.2 Star” rating as of this review should likely be closer to 2.5 stars. UPDATE: Since I wrote the above review, they have made many changes, and not one falls in the “positive” category. You cannot read your own comment history, so you have to search out articles, then search through thousands of comments to have any sort of meaningful discourse. If I could give negative stars, I would do so. Previously, this was about the only news aggregator. Now, there are options, all of which are superior.
About every other time I "Newsroom," they bug me to read and review the app. So, here goes: not much to say good or bad about the content itself as for the most part they are simply repeating "news" from other sources, a few reliable, most unreliable and biased like Huffington Post on the one hand, or FOXNews on the other. I use the app because it is generally handier than buying a newspaper; as with the newspaper, one must continually "read between the lines" in order to get a sense of what's going on out there minus the liberal or conservative bias. As far as their constant requests to rate and review, when the request appears it is impossible to respond to it without closing out of the app and going to the App Store. It is a veritable nuisance, so now that I have written a review I hope it won't happen again.
Continue being Objective
Continue to report the news as you are currently doing. I want objective reporting, which I feel Yahoo news does. Unfortunately, any reporting by the media that questions our President or points out statements that are not true or misleading is construed by some as “liberal bias” and/or fake news. I want news that challenges my beliefs, not validates my beliefs. To those who feel any criticism of our President is due to liberal bias, perhaps they should stick with Fox News. I hope Yahoo news will continue to be objective, even if it offends the far right or the far left.
Love . . . No Like . . . Yes, but less and less The news is convenient, concise and informative. However, the PLACEMENT of the ads are disruptive, extremely annoying and counterproductive. I read absolutely none of them and find myself NOT going to NEWSROOM as frequently as I might. Obviously your marketing staff believes they are doing a great job. What they very ignorantly fail to realize is what a much better job they could be doing in attracting and KEEPING viewers by implementing a far superior format allowing one to read the article and then any ads. Are you so insecure as to believe that readers won’t read them? That’s what we’re doing now, but fast losing patience in trying to follow the story or find the CORRECT arrow. You asked and now I, and many, many others, hope you listen . . . or adios
I installed this app about a week ago but only “signed in” with my Yahoo account, a couple days ago. Almost immediately after I gave this app my account information, I noticed my phone’s battery percentage dropping fast. I ignored it for the first day but by the second day and after I had just charged my battery to 100% only a couple hours before, this app had depleted my battery to 90%!! I know it was this app because I checked in my phone’s “settings” then “battery info” section. This is TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE!! It’s a shame because I really was liking this app, too. But I cannot and will not reinstall it until this defect is fixed!! I can’t be charging my battery every few hours!! I hope you will look into this claim. Thank you!!
Yes, I know, Yahoo news is Left Wing biased..., but...
The comments are not restricted or deleted, we all get to shape the meaning of what Yahoo publishes! For example, I am all out Trump, but I don’t agree with the wall. We need to help Latins get rid of their Obama-Clinton type high tax governments. Lets spend the wall money doing that instead. Yahoo commenters see my point, try that on Fox! Yahoo’s open policy on commenting the news is wonderful! Any left wing article becomes a hot bed of debates pages long! Generally the debate is decent but being called a moron now and then is a fair price to pay for the joy of speaking out!
I have really enjoyed this app it’s been a great source of enjoyment for me. I find so much news to discuss on line with the community. Thanks so much for hours of enjoyment everyday. Now I would like to be able to look back on my posts like the way we were able to do in the past. It’s still a great app and a really great way to get news. In fact, it’s my only news source. I really enjoy being able to comment on the news in my posts. It really helps me to release some frustration. Thanks for being here and “putting up with me”.
App needs serious help
Was using a web browser to access news w/o problems but would drain a battery in nothing flat. Tried newsroom... Worse than using a web browser. Any article you click on might: 1) display both article & comments normally. 2) display article for a second or two then show a white screen freezing up. 3) display black screen, no article text and freeze solid. Yahoo pop up asking how you like the app does not handle feedback at all. The app will appear to go to a web browser but nothing is displayed but a black page. Not a error free user friendly app and the fact yahoo change management is a free-for-all throw it in to see if it works system, you need patience... A lot of patience. Given the quality and credibility of yahoo news as well as the immature posts you may want to forego messing with the app, use your web browser. Update: Another fault in the app... Watch the apps storage use closely. It grows by leaps and bounds never freeing storage. You only upsilon is to delete and reinstall the app to do so. Update2: Once used and removed, one can not access yahoo news and login via their web browser.
I like this App🙂
So, I like the app just to get caught up on what's going on in our world. I have it set up up where I get the notification sent to me. If their is a notification I like I will read it, if I don't have time to read it I will save it as a favorite to read later. If their is a notification I don't like, I just pass it up and go onto the next one. I don't read all the articles here but if they interest me then I will read it. You just have to pick and choose what you like or don't like. But overall and so far I am enjoying the app🙂.
It seems like every rag
Has become left if left promoting socialism which is the same as communism the Russians can tell us how well that went so can the chinese now we have Nigeria Cuba and Venezuela all collapsed countries cause there dictators stole the money from the rich but kept it that’s exactly what the democrats want to do to the USA they want open borders for more voters they hate trump can’t get over why he won guess what we are number one in the worlds economy number one in oil number one in clean burning coal and number one in natural gas not bad for a businessman as a Potus
Great news app....
Newsroom collects articles from various sources (Fox, CNN, AP, Huff, WaPo, NYT, etc) and displays them for easy reading. I mention this because some comments suggest it's biased but it actually does fairly well at presenting news from different perspectives. I like the ability to comment on the articles. I'd give the iPad version of the app 5 stars but.... some of the articles start with a sound bite to get you interested but then are cumbersome to navigate in order to complete reading. Often the NEXT or SLIDESHOW buttons don't work at all. This seems to be limited to "promoted" content.
UPDATES HAVE REMOVED MOST OF THE COMMUNICATION
Updates have made this app useless for commenters. Feedback has been submitted about this since November 2018 - several updates later nothing has changed and no status. If you’re getting this to exchange comments and ideas, look further. Several versions ago, a commenter could review replies to those comments. A commenter could sign in, go into the account and all replies would be in a readable thread. If a vote was received, following the notification link took you directly to that story and comment - the comment was even shaded. Now there’s no access to your previous comments, replies are not attached to relevant comments, and if you want to see the number of votes you scroll through all of the comments.
