I too was looking to access news+ from my computer, I upgraded my iMac (late 2012) to Mojave from High Sierra. What a disaster!! It failed to upgrade half way and went onto a loop with kernel panic that the computer couldn't recover from. Reinstalling from the recovery disk didn't help either. After spending a few agonizing hours, I managed to recover the computer from a recent backup. It is still at High Sierra and I won't touch Mojave with a ten-foot pole. Fried Chicken was right, Apple updates aren't what they used to be. I was so disappointed at Apple.
