There is no very simple way as it needs to involve a script or some
programming. The former path involves stitching some bits of Lego, whereas
the latter can be tough and prone to bad handling of exceptions, of which
there are plenty. Here is what I would do:

* Use a grabber or a downloading tool (not a browser) to fetch the feed/s.

 Example: wget

          where #'s are the pertinent search terms.

To be impartial:


To get more option, see the wget manual pages ('man wget')

* Get a free RSS parser, e.g. /

* Follow documentation that accompanies the tool

That's all there is to say, I guess, unless one echoes the manuals, which are
usually extensive and include plenty of examples.

Good luck!

Before you do that you might want to check the terms of use for the RSS
feeds you're using.

That said, the Google News RSS feed can be found here:

Roy's info is right on.

What specifically do you want to do with the RSS feed? Just read the
news? Display it on another website?

This is the second thread you start about the subject in less than 3
days. That's a bit out of order.

Is this a school assignment?

Why don't you use a proper newsfeed?
