One may wonder why this was not the case when it actually mattered, like during the Republican primaries for example, or in 2003 when he warned about the disaster that subsidized loans made by Fannie and Freddie will cause.

It could also be a case of Yahoo! remembering what news items interested you (based on clickthroughs), and using some algorithm to generate front page content tailored to your interests.
Not a very pleasant thought if you’re concerned about privacy, but still a very real possibility…
