 Please provide a non video news category. Video news is tv. If I want tv, I can turn it on and it's HD. I can Hulu. I can download an entire season. I READ the news. I will stop using yahoo for everything except mail if I have to load four articles just to find one that isn't non-negotiably spamming me before I can find something to read. If you want to have a video link above within or below the article that's fine, but I don't like your producers basic style, or your advertisers' products being SHOVED in my face! I just want the news. I may explore an ad if it isn't following me around the page, or forced in my eye. But if I'm not interested, you just wasted OUR time, and lowered my opinion of your marketing team.  Thanks.

There seems to be no category for my comment so I will just leave it where it is and see what happens.

I thought the lead news stories are supposed to be news, not op-ed pieces. Brooks Jackson's story about Obama's recent misleading ad may be fact but so are many of Romney's ads. Mr. Jackson runs fact checker. Great! Terrific! Then, that's where this story should be presented ... along with all of the other incorrect, misleading facts by opponents. Running this story as an isolated one, strictly about President Obama's mis-stated facts implies and therefore favors Romney as some sort of honest, forthright person. This is, of course, hogwash. Mr. Jackson wants to let us know not just about the President's lack of correctness, he continues on to inform us of Mr. Romney's even, centrist stand on the current issues. For this writer to believe that a man who represented himself one way for an entire career, a full primary and subsequent presidential campaign to suddenly become a centrist, even-handed thinker during three 90 minute debates tells me two things: 1) Mr. Jackson is a Republican backing Romney and 2) the Yahoo homepage editor approved this nonsense  and doesn't know the difference between news and op-ed. Oh, and maybe a third thing: Did you guys lose money from Bernie Madoff?

I am tired of video stories that don't work or lead you into a vaguely related website that yahoo linked the story to.

Also tired of seeing daily Bieber and Kirsten Stewart stories.

and outdated material.  Lots of it populating the site.  Cut back on the sit prices if you don't have enough.  Actually, cut back on the stories, there are way too many fluff pieces.

and non-story stories.  Short little pathetic articles written to fill space with headlines written to make it seem important until you click on it and realize its not really important....or poorly written by one of the usual yahoo hacks.

I am having trouble with the news articles.  Most of them are partially cut off by the sidebar of advertisements lately.  The past week I have had to guess what words complete that part of the story.  Please fix!

I have to agree with you on this on. Besides the NEW page being a disaster for those of me who like to look at breif information for scanning- having a video with 90% of all articles not only is a waste of time but even after viewing them- it proves to be a BIGGER waste of time.

I realize the designers are jusiftying jobs at this point but the old sayin if its not broken dont try to fix. it.
