Cease and desist with your clear and obvious politically biased and slanted "Today in AOL" news page.
Your political bias and ***** is painfully obvious to anyone opening up their AOL accounts. Even though we have the option of not seeing that when it opens, we also have the right to choose to have it open without being inundated and drowned in clear political attacks and slants thinly veiled with the veneer of objectivity. As bad as the mainstream media are with their biases, you are just as bad if not worse. Even Fox News and CNN, from time to time, shake up their lineups and present opposing viewpoints. But your site is neither the place nor venue for ANY side of the political debate. Whether it is conspicuously chosen images to shame or put certain political leaders in a less than flattering light, or only flashing negative news about them without concurrent or side by side balanced reporting, it is sickening to see even if only briefly until I click on my mail icon.
If it was not so incredibly difficult and onerous in this day and age of virtual connectivity to change email accounts which are linked to everything we hold near and dear, I would have dumped AOL/Verizon long ago because of your clear political bias.
In fact, given how virtually necessary it is to have an email account these days, I would be in favor of banning such political biased by any email service provider who displays any news content.
Catch on fast to the discontent of your customers, and stop living in your echo bubble chamber at AOL/Verizon HQS.

Does Verizon charge the Democratic National Committee for posting DNC propaganda in front of my mail? If not, the DNC should be require to report this as an in-kind political contribution.
Today for example, one of the headlines I had to wade through read something like: "Some GOP Politicians Mislead About Spread Of Covid." To anyone actually familiar with current events, that headline is hilarious.
The most notorious mis-spreader of information about the pandemic is all over the news this week. HE'S NOT IN THE GOP. He's the Democratic governor of the state with the worst Covid death rate, who begged a Republican president for help, and when help promptly arrived, didn't use it. Instead, he sent elderly patients back to nursing homes, killed them and others, then lied about it.
Neither is St. Anthony of Fauci, who has shifted from telling us to never wear a mask, to always wear a mask, to wear two masks. "Don't shakes hands with friends, but go ahead and have *** with strangers." That's not "misleading," is it?
I still have a AOL email account only because it would be too tedious to change my address, given that it gave it out to so many twenty-five years age. But if I have to keep wading through this propaganda just to check on it, then, at some point, it will become worth he effort.

When MSNBC is your source...you political ***** is offensive and unfair coverage. You slung mud for 4 years and now there is no coverage of issues that concern us all. Changing voter and election process, opening borders, Gavin Newson recall, Andrew Cuomo Covid-19 coverup, softball passes to Joe Biden, etc. should concern everybody. Why not try to be even? or do you just not care ?

I agree, and what AOL does with headlines is dangerous and I reported it to Homeland Security as follows...
Today's inciting AOL headline: "OFFICER WAS ON FLOYD'S NECK LONGER TIME THAN ORIGINALLY REPORTED." All news media should be held accountable for continuing to use opinionated, bold headlines to infuriate and incite death, riots, burnings, destruction and looting. These headlines are the first spark that have been bringing the country to its knees. Once the mobs are roaming the streets, it is too late. The news media is doing this intentionally for future ratings. AOL NEWS should be made an example of and prosecuted for posting such a knowingly false headline of opinion that shows they were and are still leading the charge in the streets against front line law enforcement. Proactive attention to news headlines is needed more than reacting to the resulting riots.

AOL is obviously a left wing biased outlet that I would prefer not to see .But to change my address would be very in convenient .If I see any hint of censorship you will be history
Renee Still Day commented
As you report fair and unbiased FACTS, I completely disagree with this poster. Continue to report the news even if people don't like it because of their OWN bias at least put it out there. You can't make anyone on the Right happy unless you bend over and kiss the ring of their orange god. Keep up the good work. I may not agree with everything you post either, but at least I know I can believe it!
RICHARD NUTT commented
How do I login without seeing your propaganda, or do I just need to change email providers?
MARYANNE CRISPINO commented
You're being Big Brother now. Every **** comment I make you stop. I know the liberals and Democrats own you. I'm really considering canceling my subscription.
Mark Avery commented
Is there a company that provides email services that does not advocate the suppression of speech they don't agree with politically?
Bob Wilson commented
I agree and stop blocking email from the Oath Keepers or any other organization. Maybe it's time for a class action lawsuit? I chose to receive their email and who are you to block it? This does give me more reason to move to proton, though.
David Bryson commented
Agree, considering other email options due to the bias.
Janice Toms commented
So agree....guys if you want people to read your news or articles you need to clean out the biased left side. This country was founded on capitalism, hard workers get rewards. I give my own charities & don't need government telling me who I should give it to. You can do something about it or sit on the sidelines, but your news always is so "anti-country basic beliefs" that anyone with an education in economy or business--cannot stomach the articles. 1/2 country votes other way with each election. Got to get better or we will just not read you "garbage" information.

I skip your news reports and go straight to my email. Isn't there some information about Cuomo and Hunter Biden? I bet there is!!

They've become the NationAOL Inquirer. AOL is a refugee from 1996 and is only still in existence because of Verizon. AOL needs to go the way of dial up modems. AOL, your political bias is as obvious as it is disgusting. Time to throw out this garbage.
RICHARD SANDOVAL commented
Your 'news dept' suffers from the same bias as the 95% of the mainstream media. I can only blame it on the lack of critical thinking that our Teachers Union fosters. Student rank 28th in Math, 34th in Reading and 32nd in Science. I think that Isaac Newton's apple would have fallen up in your Journalistic world.
TERESA D ALESSANDRO commented
i totally agree
JOSEPH DITONNO commented
Completely agree!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am getting tired of having every comment I make being rejected.
Felicia Stafford commented
Could not agree with you more. This continual drumbeat is why Americans are so divided, and this constant and thinly veiled bias, which as in the case of AOL is mostly from the Left, is only making people angrier and more frustrated, and fueling the division. Please just STOP.
STEWART SMITH commented
I agree with the comments made here. I personally have been Censored every time I try and reply to Liberals bashing Conservatives. My comments are always flagged for some unknown reason. It would seem that the forum Liberal Judges have declared me an Extremist and must be Censored for calling Democrats what they really are. Disgusting with the Bias of AOL. AOL must be members of the Council on Foreign Relations, the organization behind China Joe, Pelosi, Schumer, and the Andy Kaufman look alike Adam Shiff.
