Yahoo Newsroom is an absolute disaster
They keep on working the bugs out, but it's still buggy AF. One of the major issues still unresolved is when you go back to an article (let's say yesterday) to see who responded to your post, what they said, etc ... most of the time it shows up blank and says "Be the first to respond!". There are literally hundreds, sometimes thousands of responses. It shows this actual number on the left. You arrived back at the article via an alert saying there were likes or responses to your post ... but it's blank and asks if you want to be the first to respond. This is UNACCEPTABLE!!!!! This has been going on since they forced mobile users to use this garbage app to comment, yet they STILL haven't fixed this MAJOR issue.
Speed Reading of What's Going On Out There
I like it because it covers a large number of topics and events and you can read the short version and keep moving down the page. However if you want to know more about an article then you have that option to read more
about whatever subject is of interest to you. Keep up the good work!!
I have had the yahoo app for a long time. I've always enjoyed the mix of "real" news and "lifestyle" news. Recently 9/10 political articles that I read have a clear agenda- to support a liberal view point. I voted for Hillary, and I still find this disturbing! I want facts- I don't want an echo chamber of my own thoughts. How can we grow and work together, if a popular news organization such as Yahoo is primarily posting opinion articles about how terrible Trump is? With so much fake news, it's really disappointing to see Yahoo take this stance. I'm deleting my app and relying on CNN. Yahoo, please go back to being balanced!
