YAHOO! NEWS originated as an internet-based news aggregator by Yahoo!
. Articles originally came from news services such as the Associated
Reuters , Fox
Al Jazeera , ABC
USA Today ,
CNN.com , BBC
News , etc.
News launched the first "most-emailed" page on the
web. It was a well-received innovative idea, expanding on how
computers could be used to do things in a society.
Yahoo allowed comments for news articles until December 19, 2006,
when commentary was disabled. Comments were re-enabled on March 2,
2010. Comments were temporarily disabled between December 10, 2011,
and December 15, 2011, due to glitches.

part of its plans to become a major media organization. Veteran
journalists (including Walter Shapiro and
Virginia Heffernan ) were
hired, while the website had a correspondent in the
White House press
corps for the first time in February 2012. An Amazon-owned marketing
data collection company (Alexa) claimed
News one of the world's
top news sites, at this point.
Plans were made to add a Twitter feed. In November, 2013, Yahoo
hired former Today Show and CBS Evening
Katie Couric as
