Those who've been studying Chinese for a while may remember NewsinChinese.com, a website that mechanically annotated Xinhua articles with pinyin and english popups. The site had a six month hiatus because of server problems, but is live again. It's also rigged to work with the ChinesePod vocab manager, so that click-to-add vocab features work there just like anywhere else once you're logged in.
If reading, reading and more reading is your thing, you may want to check it out. The site is especially good (imho) for naturalizing how to segment and parse Chinese texts, especially texts with lots of proper nouns. Right now we have four news feeds (domestic, international, finance, IT) - I'd be happy to add other categories on demand.
