Increasingly Horrible feed? 1 Recommended Answer 25 Replies 5 Upvotes

The harder I try to customize my Google News feed the worse it gets. Every day I see something on there that ruins my mood for hours or even days. I have tried blocking topics I don't like and this only causes even worse topics to show up. It is starting to feel like targeted harassment or psychological torture. Why in the world would anyone (wrongly) think that any of these articles are things I could want to see? I called the 24/7 help number and a very nice lady could only tell me to post something here. I don't know what more I can do here. I feel almost violated by the kinds of articles that were being suggested, even after I spent a lot of time and effort trying to curate them.

I really like Google's services and I've relied on them for a long time. Should I just not use Google News?

Same here, I keep down voting the football news, but first two articles on my feed are always football related. It's getting to a point where I'm thinking of deleting the app. I tried to report the issue twice but haven't received any reply or fix yet

Also been frustrated with this for quite a while now. No matter how many times I ask for less stories about sports, sports teams, sports players, etc. I still get tons of sports stories in my feed. Same with other topics, most notably celebrity gossip. Eventually decided the "Fewer articles like this" option was worthless.

I've also noticed that Google News truncates a number of articles forcing me to view the original webpage to get past the first few paragraphs. This happens frequently with the NYT even though it shows me as subscribed.

I constantly try to train my feed, but it just gets worse. Their algorithms seem to be continually getting worse.

I find Google news almost a complete waste of time now because it does not allow you to lock out complete sections like sport and entertainment as was possible before. I am not going to waste more time with a useless and annoying news source

Take my advice ........ BBC , PBS and Al Jazeera   news sites are so much better. Try them!
