7. I too have actually blocked Yahoo News feeds at the gateway.

It's always particularly partisan favoring one side only.

Setup a Gmail account and customize a News.Google.Com page to your liking and you'll never go back. You can then filter out Web sites with their configuration tool. It's not perfect, but it's a start.

8. For what it's worth

I kind of like being able to see what they post, even though its garbage. You know how Bing has that feature where you can customize news based on your political viewpoints? I really hate that idea. I think we're coming to a point where Americans are living in dual realities with opposing and conflicting facts. Hence the emergence of the RW bubble.

3. Like any other company, it's a mix.

Their CEO, Marissa Mayer, is a well known Obama supporter and liberal though, if that matters.
