Yahoo News has come up with a new idea: When they haven't got an actual video to accompany a story, they string together a few still photographs in a slide-show, and then cover the photographs with the text of the story. Not just captions at the bottom of the screen, but big thick bold letters - and always two different colours! The size of the font and the colour changes make the text almost unreadable to me. I hate it !

In case the video doesn't play properly, this screen shot gives you and idea of what I'm talking about.

First of all, how terribly sad, I hope they got their trailer back so they could still take their trip.

 

It's fairly poor news programming if that's the best Yahoo can come up with.  Perhaps younger hipper folks like it that way better.  Or they are just doing it as cheap as they can.  It would be slightly less annoying if all the words were the same color. No it would still be annoying.


In past lives I lived in Atlantis and Pompeii, I took a vacation on the Titanic and I thought those were disasters! HA!

That's probably what happened. They probably tested the new style with their target audience and got a positive feedback. Once that happened they ran with it (and not a thought for grumpy old men like me).

Either read it to me, let me read it myself, under the pictures or video, but please don't cover it up.

It's getting worse. See how long you can watch this story before you get hopelessly lost:

Yahoo is so outdated I bet most kids today don't know what it is.  Of course Yahoo does not know what it is either. 

 

I for one don't care how bad Yahoo gets because I get my news from my own news portals like UnFox News, My News, Steve's News, and California Dolphin.

That's awful and I wouldn't want to get my news like that. It's like watching an old slide show.
