Edit the newsreader.js and scroll down to the button. You fill find two arrays with some examples inside. Add your feed like the example show you. It is important to know that, the newsreader script will only show the information at the rss description tag. If there is only a small description of the original article inside, it will makes no sense to use that rss feed.
