Hating some RSS feeds

Because they contain little, or nothing, more than just that “Read More” link.

What’s the point of letting people syndicate, when all you’re syndicating are links back to the website?! I know you want eyesballs and all. I don’t care, just gimme more than stand-firsts!

MSNBC feeds suck.

New York Times feeds suck.

Washingtonpost feeds (well, a few of them, like Miss Manners) suck more.

The New Yorker feeds suck the most.

Am I missing something here?

Do I have to pay for longer excerpts or full stories or what (mind you, I already have a New Yorker print subscription)?

Pfff.
