I have a local news section (for Seattle, WA, if it matters) set up on my Google News homepage. Most days, all it shows me is sports news, however, which do not interest me at all. I want to somehow downvote the sports news so that things that might actually interest me will bubble to the top.

How can I convince Google News that I don't care about sports?

Sure you can!

  1. Click the gear icon that says Personalize your News

  2. Type in "Sports"

  3. Drag the slider to the left to where it says "Rarely"
