MSN's "No Choice News" Homepage

On September 30, 2014, Microsoft terminated its "My MSN" homepage service and substituted its own selected news feeds. The consequence: MSN now controls the source of news for its patrons.

Prior to the change MSN homepagers could choose their news outlets which might include The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, Fox News and Al Jazeera.  Comparing news reports on various issues was an easy endeavor.

MSN's new rolling photo format could be called the three stooges of news, lots of slapstick, little substance. Phooey!
