Problem adding RSS Feed via sidebar widget (2 posts)

    Help! I have tried everything I can think of.

    I would like to add a keyword specific news feed to my sidebar of my blog - http://www.tybeeconcierge.com.

    Preferably I would like to use Google News. Yahoo News would be an acceptable alternative. I have however tried everything to implement this.

    However, the widget shows them as invalid feeds and displays nothing. I have even tried to find and install a plugin to do it. I installed Simple RSS Fetcher 1.0.1 but that is doing the same thing.

    Google give the RSS feed as this:
    http://news.google.com/news?hl=en&tab=wn&ned=us&q=tybee+island&ie=UTF-8&output=rss

    This validates:
    http://feedvalidator.org/check.cgi?url=http%3A//news.google.com/news%3Fhl%3Den%26tab%3Dwn%26ned%3Dus%26q%3Dtybee%2Bisland%26ie%3DUTF-8%26output%3Drss

    But does not work.

    I also have tried this:
    http://news.google.com/news?hl=en&q=tybee%2Bisland&ie=UTF-8&output=rss

    This also validates:
    http://feedvalidator.org/check.cgi?url=http%3A//news.google.com/news%3Fhl%3Den%26q%3Dtybee%2Bisland%26ie%3DUTF-8%26output%3Drss

    But also doesn't work.

    Any ideas on how I can accomplishing this would be GREATLY appreciated.

    I have spent hours on this with no solution.
