Yahoo News used to be a pure Internet-based news aggregator by Yahoo. It categorizes news into "Top Stories", "U.S. National", "World", "Business", "Entertainment", "Science", "Health", "Weather", "Most Popular", "News Photos", "Op/Ed", and "Local News".
Yahoo allowed comments for news articles until December 19, 2006, when commentary was disabled. Comments were re-enabled on March 2, 2010. Comments were temporarily disabled between December 10, 2011, and December 15, 2011, due to glitches.
In June 2011, Yahoo News was rebuilt using an internal content management system called the Yahoo Publishing Platform. The same platform now powers Yahoo News in the following regions and languages: Argentina, Brazil, Canada, English, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Spanish (US), English (US),], Venezuela, Hong Kong, English (India), Marathi, Tamil, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
Since 2011, Yahoo has expanded its focus to include original content, as part of its plans to become a major media organization. Veteran journalists, including Walter Shapiro and Virginia Heffernan, were hired, while the website had a correspondent in the White House press corps for the first time in February 2012. Alexa lists Yahoo News as one of the world's top news sites.
On August 29, 2012, Yahoo News fired Washington bureau chief David Chalian after he made a disparaging comment about Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney and his wife Ann Romney during the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida. With Hurricane Isaac entering Louisiana, Chalian suggested that "They're not concerned at all. They're happy to have a party with black people drowning".
