    When you set up Cortana, you can specify news topics. However, you cannot specify the source. I've noticed that all Cortana news comes from Fox, which is not acceptable to me. Is there a way to specify/limit news sources for Cortana?

    I completely agree! I tend to reply on Sky News as my source of news, and not Fox News.
    Maybe in the final build (not Preview for Developers), Microsoft may give us the choice to give us news sources to look up!

    It's a good idea though :)

    I heart Fox News. Microsoft usually caters to NBC\MSNBC which is completely unacceptable to me.

    I want more balanced news, like my dog's version of why dogs are better than cats. Fox News is just horrible, and I refuse to use it, refuse to even assume that the headlines are anything but craploads of evil spin. Yeah, I'd like an option for something other than why rich people deserve everything, and why non-rich people should be happy they are allowed to be a rich person's carpet.

    I guess my Cortana has a sick sense of humor.

    I told Cortana I wanted news, not faux news full of right wing propaganda!

    My news via Cortana comes from a wide variety of sources. Fox being the least of it. I like the variety of having different sources. I have no complaints.

    We all get a variety, but sometimes I've gotten almost all headlines/top stories from Fox News (Fake News?) instead of anything else... Like... Like... The Daily Worker, or.. Uh... The Enquirer. Something that has a chance of being more fair, and more balanced (HAH!).

    Now I'm getting fox news articles in the Health news source. Which is a laugh because fox news only believes in health care for the Super Rich.

    Yeah, that's it......
    You don't have to like fox news, but I urge you to dump whatever it is you do use for news because clearly it's not helping you.

    This is what I do.. Open Cortana, type in "Real Madrid news", she gets me the results and from there tap on the "update me on this news" option..
    Sometimes this option will be given under the first link and sometimes you will have to scroll down a bit

    Real news from infowars.com would be nice. Not propaganda from Fox, or CNN.
