If the RSS file is text only, no illustrations, then you can convert it 
to plain text somehow. Then you can either import it directly into 
Scribus or else use Open Office Writer as an intermediate step.

Worst case you can display the RSS on the screen and cut and paste the 
text into an empty Scribus book with a series of linked text frames, 
one per page.  See the manual and the wiki for details. The help 
facility of Scribus gives access to a manual. 

You begin by describing the Scribus file on the first screen that 
appears as having x number of pages and with linked text frames.
