I've set up several gadgets in My Yahoo that show text-only (my preference) news headlines from a variety of sources, which I can view at the same time as checking email. It looks like this setup is going to be even more streamlined than Google News has been.
The Reuters site looks ok, as do some of the print newspaper sites, but they are mostly image-heavy for my dialup connection. If just checking to see quickly what's going on, it's a bit of a nuissance to wait more than a minute for a page to load.
