You could just add an RSS feed to a page like this for the same affect & without the copyright issues.
Alternatively, I think it's a great idea to write your own commentary on news related to your niche and post it on your blog or website. For example, you could use Google Alerts to find daily news related to your niche and then post a 200-400 article about it (which would take less than 30 minutes to write - if that. Just reword the original news article and add your own opinion at the end!) It's a great way to get traffic, because lots of people search for news or receive Google Alerts, RSS on topics of their interest.
I've noticed that blog posts on current news also tend to get more comments from readers.
