RSS feed converter

  1. Hi guys,
    I'm in the process of designing my website through a office live account.
    My website is intended to be a News site, and i would love to have the latest news available on my site and also want it to update automatically.

    I downloaded Feed Deamon so i could grab the feeds from there. and i've also used some online feed readers and converters. This has worked fine for me.

    when you use feeds as we all know, those articles are linked to another website, making the user leave my website and go to the source of the feed.
    I'm wondering if there is way that i could make Rss feeds available from within my site. in other words, if i grab a feed from cnn.com, is there a way that i could put those feeds into my site and somehow link them to another source from my site? so the users can view the entire news piece from within my site, and not have to be redirected to cnn.com

    Hope i'm making sense here.

    For example if a user is at the home page of my site and wants to read an article from one of the feeds, when they click on the feed, i want the user to stay within my site so that the addres bar would read :" www.domain.com/article name"

    If you gusy know of any way, software, utility that i could use to accomplish this i would really appreciate it.
    Advices and tips are more than welcome and appreciated since i'm a total rookie when it comes to web design.

    Not without the possibility of violating the copyright of the other site.

    Copyright is the issue, not software. You need written permission to redistribute content.

    I can't share the technique you need due to the above conflict.
