Forum Question: How To Get Back News Tab In Safari Bookmarks?

I have the latest Safari in Lion. I deleted the News tab which was a default Bookmarked item on the Bookmarks Bar.
I wish to get it back… A website lists the source in /Applications/Safari.app/Contents/Resources/English.lproj/BuiltInBookmarks.plis‌​t, but what do I do with it to pull it back into Safari?

    No way I can think of. That file is where they would be stored if you still had them. But no need to mess with that file. You can add or remove bookmarks directly in Safari, as you know. So that doesn’t help you.
    That News folder is just a sampler of News RSS feeds, I believe. I guess you could go to an Apple Store or find a friend who just got a Mac and look at that set of bookmarks and note which ones are there. I don’t have it on any of my Macs anymore.
    Or, just forget about it and create your own News folder and add the news sources that you like to read.

    I want to do the third, and choose NYtimes, Washington Post, Guardian and a couple of specific others that offer RSS. But I’ve no clue how to go about it. Please tell me the steps if you can…Thanks.

      Go to the news site. Then look for the RSS button in the address field at the top of the page. Click on it and choose the RSS feed you want to view it. Then Bookmarks, Add Bookmark and add it to your Bookmarks Bar.
      Before you do that you can Control+Click on the bookmarks bar and choose “Add Folder” and add a folder named “News.” Then when you add the RSS feeds, add them to that specific folder.
