Yahoo "news" is biased, incompetent, and unreliable
Let's face it yahoo "news" is useless and managed by incompetence. Since Yahoo is keeping all our dividends for themselves anyway, why not spend that to partner with a heavily followed web news source like Drudgereport? Yahoo would be tapping into the gargantuan traffic from drudgereport . What would lure people is to check email, stock quote, and read the news at one site. If Drudgereport started their own email and even charged a small fee for privacy, it would be curtains for yahoo.
