Is there a web site (or an RSS feed) where I can view all the stories - including local/regional bits - that go out on the AP Wire or similar?

Response by poster: Sorry, I thought it was obvious - I'd like access to the full spectrum of articles being released by the AP without the filtration provided by Yahoo, CNN and their ilk. I'd like to be able to decide for myself what is and isn't news-worthy or relevant to my needs.

I've always been under the impression that newspapers (online and off) only publish a fraction of the stories that come across the wires. Am I mistaken?

The raw wire service is a paid service, I think, so not likely to be provided as-is for free on any website.

It's not so much that there are lots more stories, as that you will see stories break, develop, be corrected, be added to, and eventually be dropped. It's more of a flow of evolving information than you'll get on Yahoo news or in the newspaper, where someone has taken all the current bits of knowledge about a story up to a certain deadline and summarized them for you (according to whatever news bias they're working), so that in itself can be interesting to watch, but it is not a source of lots of stories unknown to the average media consumer joe in the street.

The Drudge Report has this link, which seems to go to the sort of firehose of AP content you are looking for.
