    I have see the the PluggableDemoModule with shared content inside the ControlPanel, Umm Nice, but I demand that is possible to see the news from one external web site "News provider" like mywebsite to others website. That using one SimpleViewModule like PluggableDemoModule. We push the news in ours clients Dashboard Modules

    It's possible to use not the Current website to sharing the generic news contents  but one external site as provider source. 

    This is one very interesting solution to communicate with ours clients throw Sitefinity admin interface. That's will great!

    It sounds like you want to be able to pull News from an outside website into Sitefinity.  I believe the best way to accomplish this would be to have the outside website provide an RSS feed.  Then on your web server you would periodically poll the RSS feed (with a Timer or a Windows service) and add the news to SItefinity, which you should be able to do through Sitefniity's API.

    I know Sitefinity has the ability to setup an RSS feed, but I'm not sure about pulling data from an outside feed.  I think you'd have to program that yourself.
