clicked the x but didn´t work ...
You bastard! Upon reading your post, I went to my Google News and clicked the X. Guess what?
To hide a specific badge from your collection, hover over the badge and click the trash can. Individual hidden badges cannot be restored, so be careful!
To hide all Google News badges, click the “X” in the top right of “Google News Badges” in the side column, or click “Turn off all news badges” when you’re notified about badges.
Now I have to start all over again. You are so lucky that I have a sense of humor (smiling while typing this), otherwise you would have, some day, found a dead fish in your mailbox.
