Question: Who's feeds? NEWSFEEDS!

Tue, 18 Oct 2005 19:14:19 -0800

I'm looking for a few good rss newsfeeds to put on my google frontpage. And I'm asking for your advice.

I'm already subsribed to the CBC world, national, and toronto feeds, but I've got a whole 'nother column sitting there waiting to be filled with newsy goodness. What newsfeeds do y'all suggest?

If you have a purile fascination with weird soft news topics like I do you'll want to add the best of the available sources for it, Jim Romenesko's Obscure Store (the feed)

(Romenesko also runs Poynter Online, if you're interested in special topics in journalism, I think he broke the Yahoo "finding" vs "looting" story on a tip from a reader for an e.g.)

This essentially boils down to what feeds people like. Check out Ask MeFi RSS tags, this thread, and this thread.

Also, a couple of my favorite feeds are Paul Ford, Neil Gaiman, Michael Hanscom, Waiter Rant, Cool Tools, McSweeney's Lists, and A New York Escort's Confessions.

WCityMike: Many of the RSS topics posted before have been very blog-y or link-y. I'm looking for some stuff that's more news-y.
moift: My roommate reccomended the very same thing when I asked him.

Well, Google Personalized comes with a lot of pre-set news feeds: Google News, CNN, etc., so I won't bother reproducing them here.

The items I read that aren't on there that are more of a news bent are White House Briefing, Chicagoist, and MacMinute. All of them are a bit specialized and may not fall into your interest areas.

If you are just looking for general news stories on a particular topic, the google and yahoo feeds are great. You can create your own search on whatever topic and turn it into an rss feed.

Another thing is that you can filter them fairly easily once you create them, and start seeing things you don't want. Mine filter out any Business Wire or PR Newswire story, for example, since they are press releases rather than "real" news.

Doesn't get much easier or better than that, IMO.

This really depends on your personal tastes. So, I think a lot of people are going to suggest a lot of really various things. My best advice is to just browse the news as you would normally, and whenever you find a site that might be interesting, look for its RSS link. That way you will slowly build up a list of feeds that are personally relevent. Below is a portion of the feeds that I follow. Again, some of this will reflect my personal interests and may be irrelevent to you, but who knows.

Since you've listed Canadian sources, you might find this question of mine useful too.

BBC News provides some nice RSS feeds.

Here's an OPML dump of my news, blog, and language-related feed subscriptions, grouped by category (since you did ask for news feeds and not for blogs, you get the others as a bonus), culled down from the previous 1100+ subscriptions, and minus several dozen RSS feeds for saved searches that nobody but me would probably want.
