Really Simple Syndication. It's an XML based format that sets a standard format for text so that can easily be manipulated and displayed in another application or on another website. Many sites produce RSS feeds of their news so that an external application can be used to check the site automatically for updates and notify the user. Some ties kindly provide the full text of their news sites with each item, while others only produce the headlines. This site uses RSS for easy syndication, or so that the user can read the content outside the hideous design. Polling it for updates won't win you friends or educate you on any particular topic.
