This is not an answer to your question, sorry.

But you can host your own reader.  I can recommend tiny-tiny-rss, which
also has a nice android client (two, actually).

To get the content instead of the short description, you can try
full-text-rss (you can host this yourself as well).  It does not work
perfect (esp. heise content is missing in a lot of articles), but
improves the situation.

I expect a good solution based on emacs to be hard to set up, because of
heavy image/markup/codesnippet/..-use in many articles and because of
syncing.  But I'll follow this thread and would be habby to be proven
