    I just ran across this article:

    Code:
    http://www.journalism.co.uk/2/articles/539475.php
    Wordpress plugin (I have not tried it just yet):

    Code:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/the-guardian-news-feed/
    The Guardian has launched a new tool to allow bloggers to republish its articles free of charge.

    The Guardian News Feed plugin works with blogging system WordPress and will allow users to search for and embed whole Guardian articles on their own sites.

    Adverts will be embedded within the Guardian blog posts hosted on other sites to build a global ad network, but bloggers will keep any revenue generated on their own sites from the ads, says a press release.

    hmm, that's interesting. i'd love to see if it actually pays, and if so, how much. i know the newspaper industry is struggling to survive, so i wonder how that's going to work if the bloggers keep all the revenue.

    Just get their content with a RSS feed... why would you need a key and all the crap when it just takes 5 seconds to get the full content from their site without a plugin and zero ads.
