Top 10 Ways to Avoid Junk MSN ArticlesWith the recent takeover of dislike-ridden articles written by a new wave of journalists, there are almost no quality articles on the website. If you pulled up the MSN start page, you would see some articles having outlandish titles, articles having more dislikes than likes, articles that don't even cite sources, and articles that are completely useless. However, not all the articles on the said website are like this. Here are ten ways to avoid these articles on the website. If you have any suggestions, please put them on the list.
Sometimes you need to click the 'Not interested' icon on some of these. In just a few clicks with a few articles, the system would understand you a little better.
Research the company behind the article. If they are known to have a good reputation in reporting, then you're good to go. If they have a bad one, you know what to do.
Not being able to comment on an article is a bad thing in some cases, since it depends on which case you're talking about. If a major event happened, we see why, but if it's somebody's opinion on something, it's a completely different story.
If the title of the article points towards something out of order or if the image shown on the page is not relevant to the headline, try to avoid it.
The like to dislike counter is a life saver. Since YouTube doesn't acknowledge the fact that censorship is a bad thing, at least you are able to see the numbers on MSN. While reading, check why people either like or dislike the article.
We have seen these several times while scrolling through the main page. People in the comments section on some of these articles point out why the writers even thought that was a good idea to include a confusing title such as the one they are reading. Just stay away from these types of articles.
If a writer has a bad reputation for creating dislike-ridden articles in the past, stay away from that article and read another one.
If you researched the name for the outlet, and if they have a bad reputation in article writing or if you think the news is fake, don't click on the article and read another one.
If the article or title attacks a certain group of people, you can report it and not read the article.
Especially if it has more dislikes than likes, do it. Find a more informative article instead.
