CNN has a number of RSS feeds with current news available, on a number of topics.
I know there are generic RSS feed widgets out there, but I figured with so many CNN feeds they warranted their own widget with easier configuration than your average generic RSS widget.
NOTE! Always upgrade to the latest version if you experience problems, most things are fixed already.
The latest version is 2.6.
Known bugs: See the Google News plugin post. These two widgets are virtually identical, so bugs also tend to be the same in both.
Let me know if you find bugs, or if you want additional features or changes. Admin-selectable news item look, extra class/id for CSS etc.
