The Wall Street Journal offers RSS feeds ...headlines only, alas, and you still have to be a subscriber to read the full stories. But it's still a big endorsement of this technology by a major newspaper. Any other papers offering feeds? [Sample WSJ feed here, additional info inside.]

Here's the text of the email announcement I received, explaining the move a little further:
NEW FEATURES from The Wall Street Journal Online Dear Subscriber, We've gotten many questions from our readers in recent weeks about RSS feeds. Some of those are from subscribers wondering when The Wall Street Journal Online would provide them; others are from readers wondering what RSS is all about. We are pleased to tell you that our feeds are now available. And we also have a guide to get you into RSS, which stands for, among other things, "really simple syndication." In a nutshell, RSS feeds enable you to view constantly updated headlines from the Online Journal, as well as from our network of free Journal sites. RSS also makes it possible for you to read Journal headlines alongside those from other online publications. Subscribers who click on Online Journal article headlines will be taken to the Online Journal site where they can read the full text of the articles. To use RSS, you will need a special news reader that will allow you to collect and display the feeds. Most news readers automatically retrieve updates, helping you to stay current with latest news and columns. There are many readers available; most of them are free, while others provide special features for a fee. For more information on our feeds and instructions on how to set them up, please visit:,,0_0813,00.html?mod=newf072704 This is just our first step into the world of RSS. If you have suggestions on how we can improve our offerings, please let us know by emailing us at Thanks very much. Best regards, Bill Grueskin Managing Editor, The Wall Street Journal Online

Pretty much every major paper has them: BBC, NYT, LAT, etc.

OK, so it's a non-story. *I* thought it was interesting.

If you still have to register to read the damn thing, then what's the point?

What I'd really like to see is an al-Jazeera RSS feed in English.

ok, so you have to be a paid subscriber to read the feeds. And if you are a paid subscriber then you probably already got an email telling you about this. And if you're not a subscriber, this means nothing to you. As such, theres no reason for it to be a FPP.

As a paid WSJ subscriber, I don't recall getting an email about this. The WSJ has a pretty long list of things you can subscribe to for email notification. If you've opted out (as I have), I might not have known. Thanks me3dia.
