    Hi!

    Was wondering if anyone knows if it's possible to add or remove news sources from Cortana "Top Stories" or "latest Political News" et al...?
    i.e., if I prefer to see news from certain publications, and not from others?

    thx!

    Have you tried adding a "News" item and manually entering the topics that interest you?

    Right, this is what I am getting at.. The topics are fine, but is there a way to choose which news sources you prefer to receive news from?

    Right now no. I remember reading that MS and Fox News got into some kind of news partnership, god knows why. Since then I've noticed a lot of fox news stories on Bings news page and there's no way to filter them out.

    Simply delete fox news with the delete option

    Just wanted to bump this. I've been looking for a while and can't find anything. It's definitely not tied to the Bing News sources I've selected elsewhere... If this isn't possible, I hope it is soon!

    I just erased all news sources from Cortana's notebook, because regardless of what I think of the source presented, I prefer to browse when I have time for my news, rather than have it fed to me by an assistant. I really wouldn't use this even if I could specify news sources.

    Hey everyone... A while back, I submitted an idea to the uservoice that I think would be of interest to folks in this thread. Here I am shamelessly promoting it. The summary: Swipe right to get rid of older news and learning ability For Cortana to know I have no interest in some news sources. Vote if you like it.

    Swipe right to clear/remove news story from Cortana News Feed – Cortana Feedback

    Bumping this again. With my new Microsoft Band, about 1/2 the news blurbs on Cortana are from Fox News. If I could, I would shut off the news alerts, but it's an all-or-nothing with Cortana.

    Same issue. Trying to be rid of the MSNBC, Huffington Post, Salon, and other fake news sites.
