    I refuse to buy a subscription, so I don't want to see the WSJ referenced in this app at all. Any way to remedy the problem?

    But how are you keeping track of your investments and the market news?

    One thing you could do is not use that widget and use something like FeedR.

    No, the WSJ articles are behind a pay wall. All you get is a headline and some teaser paragraphs.

    And actually, I did buy Feedr, but I like the News/Weather widget for glancing at the top stories without going through the NY Times feed... then the NPR feed... then the BBC News feed... et cetera.

    But you're right. I guess the solution is that there is no solution.

    Feedr does have a widget, but it will only do one feed, unfortunately.
