Even the Comics are into RSS

From E-Media Tidbits on Poynter Online, there is a Website that has an RSS feed for comics!

Okay, this really does not have that much to do with public relations, but it does show that there is a business to aggregate information. So, if people are collecting comics for feeds, why hasn't someone taken up the banner for public relations?

It seems that this would take away the bitching from certain reporters about PR firms 'spamming' press releases, but the big issue to me is how do you get reporters to grab your press release feed? And, while I love the good folks at PR Newswire and Business Wire, it would be hard to believe that they would implement an RSS feed of their clients' press releases for free, not even as a value add. Maybe they can prove me wrong ... .
