Driving an oaken stake through the hearts of the Google News App

I just do not need Google News on my mobile device. How do I disable it, if not down right delete it?

    if an app is pre-installed. You may not able to uninstall it. Some apps can be disabled. Open setting-->on the top search for "App Info"-->Tap on the 3 dot menu option and select "Show system"-->Scroll down to Google News. Here you can see if you can unisntall the app or disable it

    Thanks, samsamha. I did bumble around and was able to disable Google News. Now I have my eyes on the Weather app. It's name is not obvious, so I will have to use your method to see if I can find it.

    Samsamha, now that the google news is disabled, I would really like to get rid of that weather control that appears on the second page of the home screen. There doesn't seem to be an icon name associated with it, at least that I have found.
