Plug in news or use rss?

I have to admit that I really know nothing about rss feeds. Here's my question. I run a news site and have to gather news from all of my sources everyday. I then have to plug each news feed into my software to display on the site. Is rss a better way to go because many of my sources offer a feed? Also, is there a way to keep them on my site so I can run adsense to the readers?
Thanks

There are several ways to get RSS feeds to appear on your site. One way is outlined in this thread: Short guide to include RSS on your website [webmasterworld.com]
There are also many 3rd party services that will convert RSS feeds to HTML to show on your site. A quick search will turn up several.

RSS is easier, but some news agencies prevent you from syndicating their feeds so be careful of copyrights!

Great, thanks for the responses. Do these create a new page with each feed?

I have used a couple of third party services for converting RSS to HTML and they involve putting code on an existing page. How you arrange your pages is under your control.
