If you try to search Yahoo News for [new york], you will be out of luck. Yahoo News is returning an error that reads “we did not find results for: new york.”
Here is a screen shot:
Other states do work, such as Florida or California, but not New York.
Why? We are not sure, it is likely a bug or maybe Yahoo has something against New York State?
Hat tip to Steve Baldwin from DidIt for spotting this.
Postscript: At 9pm EST, a Yahoo spokesperson told us the issue is now resolved but would not comment further on the matter.
