Yahoo Faces Questions After Discovery Of Comment Replication

An anonymous reader writes “Someone noticed that certain Associated Press stories on Yahoo seem to be appending old comments to new stories in a way that was highly misleading (suggesting new stories had a lot more interest than they really did). The initial theory was that this was some sort of nefarious scam, potentially by Yahoo and the AP. However, Mike Masnick at Techdirt dug into the details and found evidence that it’s more about incompetence in the way Yahoo built its comment system, combined with the way that the AP pushes and rotates its articles to partner sites.”
