I can click it, and firefox opens and goes to the source of the news stories that should be visible, so it looks as if it's just not drawing anything in the window.

I've had all sorts of small problems with Plasma and its widgets. I think one of the biggest 
culprits was 'Luna' (it displays the moon cycle). It was OK until it got to the 'Full Moon' and 
froze everything - I had to hold the on/off button to be able to reboot.
With regards to the rssnow widget, just close it and then re-add and reconfigure it (actually, 
it's a pain that it doesn't remember its settings as in the event of a plasma crash, or 
inadvertently closing it, one has to start the configuration from scratch).
