How To block/mute Cortana News Sources in Windows 10

Microsoft’s Cortana acts as the personal digital voice assistant on the Windows Phone mobile platform, and has graduated to the desktop operating system’s primary search tool and a cloud based service in Windows 10. The app allows users to pick the broad categories from news, sports to technology headlines they got, but it didn’t have the ability to block or banish certain sites the content of which they may disagree with. To resolve the presented problem, the last build of Cortana offers a way for US users to take full control over the news sources those headlines were being pulled from in any eligible category.
