Yahoo! now sorting news by reader ratings OCT 03 2002
The photos on the Yahoo! News Reader Ratings page are much like those that appear on the most read and most emailed pages: tits, tragedy, cute baby animals, and weird. But the news stories appear to be of much higher quality than those on the popular pages, with only a couple of news-of-the-weird & celebrity stories. It'll be interesting to see if that trend continues.
