    Google for "Python RSS reader" and read some of the results.

    http://effbot.org/zone/effnews.htm probably answers many of your questions,
    especially since he uses the BBC news headlines as an example.

    And for the general (and fundamentally broken) approach, google for "web
    scraping".
