Use RSS feeds from whichever site you are interested in. RSS provides excerpts (or full content) which is exactly what you are looking for.

WordPress has plugins that you can simply type [rss url=’http://urlhere.com’] into a post and it will work.

Here is one I use.
http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/rss-shortcode/

    If you want RSS to be in your sidebar, this is a good widget to use.
