RSS Feeds at Traditional News Sites

Nothing earthshaking, but the Online Journalism Review/Staci Kramer have a piece on the current state of RSS feeds by news sites, noting that by having them, news sites can drive traffic to their sites and stay relevant with bloggers and other readers who want more control (like the Richard Miller story at the top of the article -- he built his own RSS feed for getting Wall Street Journal articles out). K. The usual, except for this chart which shows who's onto RSS and at what level (excuse the horrendous information display of this info; in the article, it's almost impossible to grok unless you read it carefully, but if you take the time to read it, it's really interesting as a timeline of RSS adoption. I reordered it and hopefully it makes more sense linearly. But I don't have time to make a graphic right now to show it better.)
