I've discovered that using news.google.com and an advance search I can get extremely good results for the type of news I'm trying to put on my site. The problem I am having is that the google rss feed has some extra information that I'd like to get rid of. Take a look at an example:
I am using title=link_title, link=link_url, and summary=link_content . Unfortunately, each one of these is somewhat problematic.

For link_title, I would like to remove the '- Times Picayune' portion. Is there a way to get rid of this using php before it is submitted? The '-' is always there followed by the source.
For the link_url I'd really like to use the portion between 'url=' and '&cid'
Lastly, link_content I would like to keep what's between '<font size=-1>' and '</font>'
Is there any hope in hacking this together?
